Most major insurance companies like Allstate, GEICO and Progressive quote prices for coverage on the web. Getting online rates doesn’t take much effort as you just enter the amount of coverage you want as detailed in the form.

Knowing the specifics of auto insurance helps when choosing the right coverages at the best deductibles and correct limits. Policy terminology can be ambiguous and nobody wants to actually read their policy. Below you’ll find typical coverages offered by auto insurance companies.
Liability coverage – This coverage can cover damage that occurs to a person or their property by causing an accident. This insurance protects YOU against claims from other people. Liability doesn’t cover damage sustained by your vehicle in an accident.
Split limit liability has three limits of coverage: per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. As an example, you may have values of 100/300/100 that means you have a limit of $100,000 per injured person, a per accident bodily injury limit of $300,000, and $100,000 of coverage for damaged propery. Another option is a combined limit which provides one coverage limit with no separate limits for injury or property damage.
Liability insurance covers things like repair costs for stationary objects, court costs, structural damage and attorney fees. How much coverage you buy is up to you, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase as large an amount as possible.
Collision – This pays for damage to your Trooper from colliding with another car or object. You have to pay a deductible then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.
Collision coverage pays for things like sideswiping another vehicle, crashing into a ditch, sustaining damage from a pot hole, colliding with another moving vehicle and rolling your car. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so consider removing coverage from vehicles that are older. Another option is to raise the deductible to save money on collision insurance.
Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage – This provides protection from other motorists when they do not carry enough liability coverage. Covered claims include injuries sustained by your vehicle’s occupants as well as damage to your Isuzu Trooper.
Since a lot of drivers carry very low liability coverage limits, it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages should not be overlooked. Frequently these limits are set the same as your liablity limits.
Comprehensive coverage – This coverage will pay to fix damage that is not covered by collision coverage. You first have to pay a deductible then your comprehensive coverage will pay.
Comprehensive coverage protects against things such as a broken windshield, hail damage, a tree branch falling on your vehicle and falling objects. The maximum amount you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the actual cash value, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value consider removing comprehensive coverage.
Medical payments coverage and PIP – Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage provide coverage for expenses for things like X-ray expenses, ambulance fees and surgery. They are used in conjunction with a health insurance plan or if you do not have health coverage. Medical payments and PIP cover both the driver and occupants in addition to being hit by a car walking across the street. PIP is not an option in every state but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage
