Having a good grasp of car insurance aids in choosing which coverages you need for your vehicles. The coverage terms in a policy can be confusing and reading a policy is terribly boring. Shown next are typical coverage types found on the average car insurance policy.
Collision coverage protection
This coverage pays for damage to your SLX caused by collision with another car or object. You have to pay a deductible then your collision coverage will kick in.
Collision insurance covers things like scraping a guard rail, rolling your car, colliding with another moving vehicle, crashing into a building and sustaining damage from a pot hole. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so consider dropping it from lower value vehicles. You can also raise the deductible to bring the cost down.
Comprehensive car insurance
Comprehensive insurance coverage will pay to fix damage that is not covered by collision coverage. A deductible will apply then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive insurance covers claims like a broken windshield, damage from a tornado or hurricane and damage from flooding. The highest amount your car insurance company will pay is the cash value of the vehicle, so if the vehicle’s value is low it’s probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.
Coverage for medical expenses
Med pay and PIP coverage pay for expenses such as hospital visits, surgery and rehabilitation expenses. They are used in conjunction with a health insurance program or if there is no health insurance coverage. It covers not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants and will also cover if you are hit as a while walking down the street. Personal Injury Protection is not an option in every state but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage
Coverage for uninsured or underinsured drivers
Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage protects you and your vehicle’s occupants from other drivers when they do not carry enough liability coverage. It can pay for injuries to you and your family as well as damage to your 1997 Acura SLX.
Since a lot of drivers only carry the minimum required liability limits, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is important protection for you and your family.
Liability auto insurance
This will cover damages or injuries you inflict on other’s property or people. This coverage protects you against claims from other people, and does not provide coverage for damage to your own property or vehicle.
Liability coverage has three limits: bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. Your policy might show liability limits of 50/100/50 that means you have a $50,000 limit per person for injuries, a total of $100,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and a total limit of $50,000 for damage to vehicles and property.
Liability coverage pays for things such as pain and suffering, emergency aid and medical expenses. How much liability should you purchase? That is a decision to put some thought into, but you should buy higher limits if possible.
You just read a lot of techniques to save on 1997 Acura SLX insurance. It’s most important to understand that the more you quote, the more likely it is that you will get a better rate. You may be surprised to find that the best price on insurance coverage is with some of the lesser-known companies. Some small companies may have significantly lower rates on certain market segments than their larger competitors like Progressive and GEICO.
As you shop your coverage around, make sure you don’t buy lower coverage limits just to save a few bucks. Too many times, an accident victim reduced full coverage only to regret that it was a big error on their part. Your aim should be to find the BEST coverage at a price you can afford while not skimping on critical coverages.
