Medical payments and PIP coverage
Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP provide coverage for expenses for prosthetic devices, doctor visits and EMT expenses. They are often used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance program or if you lack health insurance entirely. Coverage applies to both the driver and occupants in addition to getting struck while a pedestrian. PIP is not an option in every state and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay
UM/UIM (Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist) coverage
Your UM/UIM coverage protects you and your vehicle when the “other guys” do not carry enough liability coverage. Covered losses include injuries to you and your family as well as damage to your 1993 Saturn S-Series.
Since a lot of drivers have only the minimum liability required by law, it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is important protection for you and your family.
Comprehensive auto coverage
Comprehensive insurance coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage caused by mother nature, theft, vandalism and other events. You need to pay your deductible first then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive coverage pays for claims such as hail damage, rock chips in glass, a broken windshield and damage from a tornado or hurricane. The maximum payout you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the cash value of the vehicle, so if the vehicle is not worth much it’s probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.
This coverage covers damage to your S-Series caused by collision with an object or car. You first must pay a deductible then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.
Collision coverage pays for things like backing into a parked car, crashing into a building, rolling your car and hitting a parking meter. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from lower value vehicles. Another option is to choose a higher deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.
This coverage protects you from damage or injury you incur to a person or their property in an accident. It protects YOU against claims from other people, and doesn’t cover damage to your own property or vehicle.
It consists of three limits, bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. As an example, you may have values of 50/100/50 that means you have $50,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, $100,000 for the entire accident, and $50,000 of coverage for damaged propery.
Liability insurance covers claims like loss of income, attorney fees, court costs, bail bonds and medical services. How much liability coverage do you need? That is a decision to put some thought into, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase as high a limit as you can afford.
As you go through the steps to switch your coverage, it’s a bad idea to reduce coverage to reduce premium. There are many occasions where consumers will sacrifice full coverage and discovered at claim time that their decision to reduce coverage ended up costing them more. Your focus should be to buy the best coverage you can find for the lowest price, not the least amount of coverage.
We’ve covered a lot of ways to compare 1993 Saturn S-Series insurance prices online. The most important thing to understand is the more price quotes you have, the higher your chance of finding lower rates. Consumers could even find that the lowest premiums are with a lesser-known regional company.
Consumers change insurance companies for any number of reasons including high rates after DUI convictions, policy non-renewal, being labeled a high risk driver and lack of trust in their agent. No matter why you want to switch, switching companies is easier than you think.
