Understanding the coverages of auto insurance aids in choosing appropriate coverage and the correct deductibles and limits. The terms used in a policy can be difficult to understand and reading a policy is terribly boring. Shown next are the normal coverages offered by auto insurance companies.
Medical costs insurance – Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP provide coverage for bills for pain medications, EMT expenses and nursing services. The coverages can be used to fill the gap from your health insurance program or if you lack health insurance entirely. Coverage applies to all vehicle occupants in addition to getting struck while a pedestrian. PIP is only offered in select states but can be used in place of medical payments coverage
UM/UIM Coverage – Your UM/UIM coverage provides protection when other motorists either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. Covered claims include injuries to you and your family as well as your vehicle’s damage.
Because many people carry very low liability coverage limits, it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is very important.
Collision coverages – Collision insurance pays for damage to your SVX caused by collision with another car or object. You first must pay a deductible and then insurance will cover the remainder.
Collision can pay for claims like hitting a parking meter, colliding with another moving vehicle, damaging your car on a curb and driving through your garage door. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so you might think about dropping it from older vehicles. It’s also possible to choose a higher deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.
Comprehensive or Other Than Collision – This will pay to fix damage caused by mother nature, theft, vandalism and other events. You first must pay your deductible then your comprehensive coverage will pay.
Comprehensive insurance covers things such as vandalism, fire damage, hitting a bird and a tree branch falling on your vehicle. The maximum payout your auto insurance company will pay is the cash value of the vehicle, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value consider removing comprehensive coverage.
Liability insurance – Liability insurance will cover injuries or damage you cause to a person or their property in an accident. This coverage protects you against claims from other people. It does not cover damage to your own property or vehicle.
It consists of three limits, bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. You commonly see limits of 50/100/50 that means you have $50,000 bodily injury coverage, a total of $100,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and property damage coverage for $50,000.
Liability can pay for claims such as structural damage, court costs, legal defense fees, medical expenses and bail bonds. How much liability should you purchase? That is a decision to put some thought into, but consider buying as much as you can afford.
