Learning about specific coverages of your policy can be of help when determining the best coverages and the correct deductibles and limits. Insurance terms can be impossible to understand and reading a policy is terribly boring. Shown next are the usual coverages found on most insurance policies.
Liability coverage can cover damage that occurs to other’s property or people in an accident. This coverage protects you from legal claims by others. It does not 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. Your policy might show policy limits of 100/300/100 which stand for $100,000 bodily injury coverage, a per accident bodily injury limit of $300,000, and a limit of $100,000 paid for damaged property.
Liability coverage protects against things like attorney fees, emergency aid, legal defense fees, pain and suffering and court costs. How much liability should you purchase? That is a personal decision, but you should buy as much as you can afford.
Comprehensive insurance coverage pays for 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 insurance covers things like vandalism, hitting a deer, hail damage, a tree branch falling on your vehicle and hitting a bird. The maximum payout you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the ACV or actual cash value, so if it’s not worth much more than your deductible it’s probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.
Your UM/UIM coverage protects you and your vehicle’s occupants from other motorists when they are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. This coverage pays for injuries to you and your family and damage to your Chrysler Town and Country.
Since a lot of drivers only carry the minimum required liability limits, it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is a good idea.
This covers damage to your Town and Country resulting from a collision with an object or car. A deductible applies then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.
Collision coverage pays for claims like sideswiping another vehicle, driving through your garage door, colliding with a tree and sustaining damage from a pot hole. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so you might think about dropping it from older vehicles. Another option is to increase the deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.
Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance provide coverage for short-term medical expenses for pain medications, prosthetic devices, chiropractic care, rehabilitation expenses and ambulance fees. The coverages can be used to fill the gap from your health insurance plan or if you lack health insurance entirely. Coverage applies to not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants and will also cover any family member struck as a pedestrian. PIP is not available in all states but can be used in place of medical payments coverage
