Specific coverage details

Having a good grasp of car insurance helps when choosing the best coverages and the correct deductibles and limits. The coverage terms in a policy can be impossible to understand and coverage can change by endorsement.

Comprehensive coverages

Comprehensive insurance coverage 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 coverage protects against claims such as damage from getting keyed, damage from flooding, hitting a bird, vandalism and damage from a tornado or hurricane. The maximum amount your car insurance company will pay is the actual cash value, so if the vehicle is not worth much it’s probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.

Coverage for medical payments

Med pay and PIP coverage kick in for immediate expenses for surgery, EMT expenses, dental work, X-ray expenses and nursing services. They are utilized in addition to your health insurance policy or if there is no health insurance coverage. Coverage applies to not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants as well as if you are hit as a while walking down the street. PIP coverage is not universally available but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage

Uninsured and underinsured coverage

Your UM/UIM coverage protects you and your vehicle from other drivers when they either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. Covered claims include hospital bills for your injuries as well as your vehicle’s damage.

Since many drivers have only the minimum liability required by law, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. This is the reason having UM/UIM coverage should not be overlooked. Most of the time your uninsured/underinsured motorist coverages are identical to your policy’s liability coverage.

Liability car insurance

Liability coverage protects you from damages or injuries you inflict on other people or property that is your fault. It protects you from legal claims by others, and doesn’t cover damage to your own property or vehicle.

Coverage consists of three different limits, bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. Your policy might show policy limits of 25/50/25 that translate to $25,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, $50,000 for the entire accident, and a limit of $25,000 paid for damaged property. Alternatively, you may have one limit called combined single limit (CSL) which limits claims to one amount without having the split limit caps.

Liability insurance covers things such as court costs, medical services and legal defense fees. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is a decision to put some thought into, but you should buy as high a limit as you can afford.

Collision coverage

This coverage pays for damage to your XLR caused by collision with another car or object. You will need to pay your deductible then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.

Collision insurance covers claims like sideswiping another vehicle, driving through your garage door, hitting a parking meter, damaging your car on a curb and hitting a mailbox. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so consider removing coverage from lower value vehicles. You can also bump up the deductible to save money on collision insurance.
