Understanding the coverages of your policy aids in choosing appropriate coverage and proper limits and deductibles. The terms used in a policy can be impossible to understand and reading a policy is terribly boring. Below you’ll find the normal coverages available from insurance companies.
Coverage for liability – This provides protection from damage or injury you incur to other people or property in an accident. It protects you against claims from other people. It does not cover your injuries or vehicle damage.
It consists of three limits, bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. Your policy might show liability limits of 25/50/25 which stand for $25,000 bodily injury coverage, a limit of $50,000 in injury protection per accident, and a total limit of $25,000 for damage to vehicles and property. Alternatively, you may have a combined single limit or CSL that pays claims from the same limit with no separate limits for injury or property damage.
Liability can pay for claims like structural damage, funeral expenses, repair bills for other people’s vehicles and loss of income. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is your choice, but you should buy as much as you can afford.
Uninsured and underinsured coverage – This coverage protects you and your vehicle’s occupants when other motorists do not carry enough liability coverage. Covered losses include medical payments for you and your occupants as well as damage to your Nissan Xterra.
Due to the fact that many drivers only carry the minimum required liability limits, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. So UM/UIM coverage is a good idea. Normally the UM/UIM limits are set the same as your liablity limits.
Coverage for medical payments – Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance pay for immediate expenses like chiropractic care, X-ray expenses and doctor visits. They can be used in conjunction with a health insurance policy or if you do not have health coverage. They cover both the driver and occupants as well as any family member struck as a pedestrian. Personal Injury Protection is not universally available and may carry a deductible
Collision coverages – Collision coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage from colliding with a stationary object or other vehicle. You first must pay a deductible then your collision coverage will kick in.
Collision coverage protects against claims such as hitting a parking meter, crashing into a building, backing into a parked car, damaging your car on a curb and sideswiping another vehicle. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so you might think about dropping it from vehicles that are older. Drivers also have the option to choose a higher deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.
Comprehensive coverages – Comprehensive insurance covers damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You first must pay your deductible then your comprehensive coverage will pay.
Comprehensive can pay for things such as hitting a deer, fire damage, damage from a tornado or hurricane and damage from flooding. The most you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the market value of your vehicle, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value consider removing comprehensive coverage.
