Collision – Collision coverage will pay to fix damage to your Sable caused by collision with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. You will need to pay your deductible and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.
Collision coverage protects against claims such as rolling your car, hitting a mailbox 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 bump up the deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.
Comprehensive auto coverage – This will pay to fix damage from a wide range of events other than collision. You first must pay your deductible then your comprehensive coverage will pay.
Comprehensive coverage protects against claims like a broken windshield, hail damage, hitting a deer and vandalism. The most you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the ACV or actual cash value, so if the vehicle’s value is low consider removing comprehensive coverage.
Liability car insurance – This can cover injuries or damage you cause to other people or property. It protects YOU from legal claims by others. Liability doesn’t cover damage to your own property or vehicle.
Liability coverage has three limits: bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. You commonly see liability limits of 25/50/25 that means you have a limit of $25,000 per injured person, a per accident bodily injury limit of $50,000, and a total limit of $25,000 for damage to vehicles and property. Some companies may use a combined limit which combines the three limits into one amount without having the split limit caps.
Liability coverage protects against claims such as repair costs for stationary objects, repair bills for other people’s vehicles, medical services, medical expenses and bail bonds. How much liability coverage do you need? That is a decision to put some thought into, but consider buying as large an amount as possible.
Medical payments and PIP coverage – Med pay and PIP coverage pay for bills for dental work, nursing services, ambulance fees, X-ray expenses and hospital visits. The coverages can be utilized in addition to your health insurance policy or if you lack health insurance entirely. Coverage applies to you and your occupants in addition to if you are hit as a while walking down the street. Personal Injury Protection is only offered in select states but can be used in place of medical payments coverage
UM/UIM (Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist) coverage – This coverage provides protection when other motorists either have no liability insurance or not enough. Covered claims include injuries to you and your family and also any damage incurred to your Mercury Sable.
Due to the fact that many drivers carry very low liability coverage limits, it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is important protection for you and your family. Normally these limits do not exceed the liability coverage limits.
