Specifics of your auto insurance policy

Learning about specific coverages of your policy can help you determine the right coverages at the best deductibles and correct limits. The coverage terms in a policy can be ambiguous and coverage can change by endorsement. Shown next are the usual coverages found on most auto insurance policies.

Auto liability – Liability coverage provides protection from injuries or damage you cause to other people or property in an accident. It protects you against other people’s claims, and doesn’t cover your own vehicle damage or injuries.

It consists of three limits, bodily injury for each person injured, bodily injury for the entire accident and a property damage limit. You commonly see policy limits of 25/50/25 which means $25,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, a limit of $50,000 in injury protection per accident, and a limit of $25,000 paid for damaged property.

Liability can pay for claims such as repair bills for other people’s vehicles, bail bonds, funeral expenses, medical expenses and repair costs for stationary objects. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is a personal decision, but consider buying as high a limit as you can afford.

Collision coverages – Collision coverage pays for damage to your Crown Victoria caused by collision with another car or object. You first must pay a deductible and then insurance will cover the remainder.

Collision insurance covers things like driving through your garage door, hitting a parking meter, sustaining damage from a pot hole, crashing into a building and hitting a mailbox. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from lower value vehicles. You can also choose a higher deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.

Med pay and Personal Injury Protection (PIP) – Med pay and PIP coverage kick in for expenses like dental work, funeral costs, prosthetic devices, rehabilitation expenses and ambulance fees. They are often used in conjunction with a health insurance policy or if you are not covered by health insurance. They cover both the driver and occupants and will also cover if you are hit as a while walking down the street. PIP coverage is not an option in every state and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay

Comprehensive insurance – This coverage covers damage caused by mother nature, theft, vandalism and other events. You first have to pay a deductible then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage.

Comprehensive can pay for things such as falling objects, a broken windshield, vandalism, hitting a deer and fire damage. The most you’ll receive from a claim is the cash value of the vehicle, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value it’s probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.

Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist (UM/UIM) – Your UM/UIM coverage provides protection from other motorists when they either have no liability insurance or not enough. This coverage pays for medical payments for you and your occupants and also any damage incurred to your Ford Crown Victoria.

Since many drivers carry very low liability coverage limits, it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. So UM/UIM coverage is very important.
