Learning about specific coverages of a auto insurance policy can help you determine which coverages you need for your vehicles. Auto insurance terms can be ambiguous and even agents have difficulty translating policy wording. Shown next are the usual coverages available from auto insurance companies.
Auto liability insurance
This provides protection from damages or injuries you inflict on other’s property or people. This coverage protects you against other people’s claims, and doesn’t 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. Your policy might show liability limits of 50/100/50 that translate to $50,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, a limit of $100,000 in injury protection per accident, and a total limit of $50,000 for damage to vehicles and property. Occasionally you may see a combined single limit or CSL which limits claims to one amount and claims can be made without the split limit restrictions.
Liability can pay for things such as emergency aid, legal defense fees and funeral expenses. How much liability should you purchase? That is a personal decision, but you should buy as high a limit as you can afford.
Medical payments and PIP coverage
Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage provide coverage for immediate expenses like funeral costs, prosthetic devices and dental work. They can be used in conjunction with a health insurance policy or if you do not have health coverage. They cover all vehicle occupants and will also cover being hit by a car walking across the street. PIP is not universally available and may carry a deductible
UM/UIM (Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist) coverage
Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage provides protection from other drivers when they either have no liability insurance or not enough. Covered claims include injuries to you and your family and also any damage incurred to your Acura TSX.
Since a lot of drivers carry very low liability coverage limits, it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is very important. Usually these limits do not exceed the liability coverage limits.
This pays to fix your vehicle from damage caused by collision with a stationary object or other vehicle. A deductible applies then your collision coverage will kick in.
Collision insurance covers claims like crashing into a building, hitting a mailbox and sustaining damage from a pot hole. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so consider removing coverage from vehicles that are 8 years or older. You can also increase the deductible to save money on collision insurance.
Comprehensive auto coverage
Comprehensive insurance coverage pays for 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 claims such as damage from a tornado or hurricane, vandalism and hitting a bird. The maximum amount you’ll receive from a claim is the market value of your vehicle, so if the vehicle is not worth much consider dropping full coverage.
Cost effective 2007 Acura TSX insurance is definitely available online and with local insurance agents, and you need to price shop both to have the best chance of lowering rates.

You just read quite a bit of information on how to get a better price on insurance. It’s most important to understand that the more price quotes you have, the better your chances of lowering your rates.

These companies often have lower prices on specific markets compared to the large companies like Allstate and Progressive.
