Learning about specific coverages of your auto insurance policy can help you determine the best coverages and the correct deductibles and limits. The terms used in a policy can be confusing and reading a policy is terribly boring. Below you’ll find the usual coverages found on the average auto insurance policy.
Uninsured Motorist or Underinsured Motorist insurance – Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist 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 Jeep Grand Cherokee.
Because many people only carry the minimum required liability limits, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. So UM/UIM coverage should not be overlooked.
Liability car insurance – Liability coverage provides protection from damages or injuries you inflict on a person or their property that is your fault. This insurance protects YOU against other people’s claims, and does not provide coverage for your injuries or vehicle damage.
Coverage consists of three different limits, bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. Your policy might show policy limits of 25/50/25 that translate to a $25,000 limit per person for injuries, a limit of $50,000 in injury protection per accident, and a limit of $25,000 paid for damaged property.
Liability insurance covers things such as structural damage, repair bills for other people’s vehicles, pain and suffering, loss of income and repair costs for stationary objects. How much coverage you buy is your choice, but you should buy higher limits if possible.
Comprehensive coverage (or Other than Collision) – This pays for damage caused by mother nature, theft, vandalism and other events. A deductible will apply then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive insurance covers claims like damage from getting keyed, falling objects and damage from flooding. The most a auto insurance company will pay at claim time is the cash value of the vehicle, so if the vehicle’s value is low it’s probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.
Insurance for medical payments – Med pay and PIP coverage pay for bills for doctor visits, pain medications and prosthetic devices. They are used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance policy or if you do not have health coverage. Coverage applies to you and your occupants and will also cover if you are hit as a while walking down the street. Personal Injury Protection is only offered in select states but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage
Collision coverage – Collision insurance pays for damage to your Grand Cherokee resulting from a collision with another car or object. A deductible applies then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.
Collision coverage protects against things such as damaging your car on a curb, crashing into a ditch and hitting a parking meter. This coverage can be expensive, so consider removing coverage from vehicles that are 8 years or older. Drivers also have the option to increase the deductible to save money on collision insurance.
