Knowing the specifics of your policy helps when choosing which coverages you need at the best deductibles and correct limits. Insurance terms can be confusing and reading a policy is terribly boring.
Med pay and Personal Injury Protection (PIP)
Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage pay for expenses such as chiropractic care, nursing services, funeral costs and ambulance fees. They are used to fill the gap from your health insurance policy or if there is no health insurance coverage. It covers both the driver and occupants and will also cover being hit by a car walking across the street. Personal Injury Protection is not an option in every state but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage
Collision coverage protection
This pays for damage to your Coupe resulting from colliding with another car or object. You first must pay a deductible and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.
Collision coverage protects against things like hitting a mailbox, driving through your garage door, sideswiping another vehicle, scraping a guard rail and crashing into a building. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so consider removing coverage from vehicles that are 8 years or older. Drivers also have the option to choose a higher deductible to save money on collision insurance.
This coverage provides protection from damages or injuries you inflict on other people or property. This insurance protects YOU against claims from other people. It does not cover your own vehicle damage or injuries.
Liability coverage has three limits: bodily injury for each person injured, bodily injury for the entire accident and a property damage limit. As an example, you may have values of 50/100/50 that translate to $50,000 bodily injury coverage, a limit of $100,000 in injury protection per accident, and $50,000 of coverage for damaged propery. Another option is a combined single limit or CSL which limits claims to one amount with no separate limits for injury or property damage.
Liability insurance covers things such as bail bonds, medical expenses, repair bills for other people’s vehicles, funeral expenses and emergency aid. How much coverage you buy is a personal decision, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase as much as you can afford.
Comprehensive insurance covers damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You need to pay your deductible first and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.
Comprehensive coverage pays for things such as damage from flooding, a broken windshield, hitting a bird, falling objects and fire damage. The most you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the actual cash value, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value consider dropping full coverage.
Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist (UM/UIM)
This coverage gives you protection when the “other guys” do not carry enough liability coverage. This coverage pays for hospital bills for your injuries as well as damage to your Maserati Coupe.
Since many drivers only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. This is the reason having UM/UIM coverage is important protection for you and your family. Normally these coverages are set the same as your liablity limits.
You just read some good ideas how you can shop for 2005 Maserati Coupe insurance online. It’s most important to understand that the more you quote, the better your comparison will be. You may be surprised to find that the lowest rates come from some of the lesser-known companies.
Cheaper insurance is definitely available online and also from your neighborhood agents, so compare prices from both to get a complete price analysis. Some companies may not provide the ability to get a quote online and usually these small insurance companies provide coverage only through local independent agents.
Drivers who switch companies do it for any number of reasons including policy non-renewal, poor customer service, being labeled a high risk driver or delays in responding to claim requests. It doesn’t matter what your reason, finding a new insurance company is not as hard as you think.
