Learning about specific coverages of your policy can help you determine appropriate coverage for your vehicles. Policy terminology can be confusing and reading a policy is terribly boring.
Med pay and Personal Injury Protection (PIP) – Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP pay for short-term medical expenses for doctor visits, X-ray expenses and hospital visits. The coverages can be utilized in addition to your health insurance plan or if you are not covered by health insurance. Coverage applies to all vehicle occupants in addition to getting struck while a pedestrian. Personal Injury Protection is not available in all states but can be used in place of medical payments coverage
Collision coverages – Collision coverage will pay to fix damage to your E-Class caused by collision with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. You will need to pay your deductible and then insurance will cover the remainder.
Collision coverage pays for things like sideswiping another vehicle, hitting a mailbox and driving through your garage door. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so consider removing coverage from vehicles that are older. Another option is to bump up the deductible to save money on collision insurance.
Comprehensive insurance – This coverage pays for damage from a wide range of events other than collision. A deductible will apply and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive coverage pays for things like vandalism, hitting a deer, rock chips in glass and damage from getting keyed. The most you’ll receive from a claim is the cash value of the vehicle, so if it’s not worth much more than your deductible it’s not worth carrying full coverage.
Liability auto insurance – Liability coverage can cover damages or injuries you inflict on a person or their property in an accident. It protects you from claims by 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. As an example, you may have policy limits of 25/50/25 which stand for $25,000 bodily injury coverage, a per accident bodily injury limit of $50,000, and a limit of $25,000 paid for damaged property.
Liability coverage protects against things such as funeral expenses, repair bills for other people’s vehicles and pain and suffering. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is a decision to put some thought into, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase as much as you can afford.
Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist (UM/UIM) – Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage protects you and your vehicle when other motorists either have no liability insurance or not enough. It can pay for hospital bills for your injuries and also any damage incurred to your Mercedes-Benz E-Class.
Due to the fact that many drivers have only the minimum liability required by law, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. This is the reason having UM/UIM coverage is important protection for you and your family.
