Understanding the coverages of auto insurance can be of help when determining the best coverages for your vehicles. Auto insurance terms can be ambiguous and even agents have difficulty translating policy wording.
Liability insurance can cover damage that occurs to other’s property or people that is your fault. This insurance protects YOU against claims from other people. It does not cover damage sustained by your vehicle in an accident.
Coverage consists of three different limits, per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. Your policy might show limits of 25/50/25 that translate to $25,000 bodily injury coverage, a per accident bodily injury limit of $50,000, and property damage coverage for $25,000.
Liability coverage pays for things like repair bills for other people’s vehicles, repair costs for stationary objects, emergency aid and funeral expenses. How much coverage you buy is up to you, but you should buy as much as you can afford.
This coverage will pay to fix damage to your Rio resulting from colliding with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. You first must pay a deductible and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.
Collision insurance covers claims such as hitting a mailbox, driving through your garage door and rolling your car. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so you might think about dropping it from lower value vehicles. You can also choose a higher deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.
This coverage protects you and your vehicle’s occupants when the “other guys” are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. Covered claims include hospital bills for your injuries and damage to your Kia Rio.
Because many people only carry the minimum required liability limits, it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. This is the reason having UM/UIM coverage is very important.
Comprehensive insurance pays to fix your vehicle from damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. A deductible will apply and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive coverage pays for things such as a broken windshield, fire damage, hitting a bird, hail damage and theft. The maximum amount you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the actual cash value, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value it’s not worth carrying full coverage.
Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage provide coverage for expenses like chiropractic care, funeral costs and X-ray expenses. The coverages can be used to fill the gap from your health insurance plan or if you are not covered by health insurance. They cover you and your occupants and will also cover being hit by a car walking across the street. PIP is not an option in every state but can be used in place of medical payments coverage
The cheapest 2004 Kia Rio insurance can be bought online and also from your neighborhood agents, and you should compare price quotes from both in order to have the best price selection to choose from. Some insurance providers may not provide you the ability to get quotes online and usually these regional insurance providers provide coverage only through local independent agents.
As you restructure your insurance plan, it’s not a good idea to reduce coverage to reduce premium. In many instances, an insured cut collision coverage and found out when filing a claim that it was a big mistake. The proper strategy is to buy a smart amount of coverage at a price you can afford while not skimping on critical coverages.
Insureds who switch companies do it for a number of reasons such as an unsatisfactory settlement offer, high prices, lack of trust in their agent and even poor customer service. Whatever your reason, choosing a new insurance company is easier than you think.
