Insurance policy coverages for a Volvo XC90

Understanding the coverages of your policy can help you determine which coverages you need for your vehicles. The coverage terms in a policy can be confusing and reading a policy is terribly boring.

Comprehensive coverage (or Other than Collision) – Comprehensive insurance pays for damage from a wide range of events other than collision. A deductible will apply then your comprehensive coverage will pay.

Comprehensive coverage protects against claims like hitting a deer, vandalism and damage from a tornado or hurricane. The highest amount you’ll receive from a claim is the market value of your vehicle, so if the vehicle’s value is low consider removing comprehensive coverage.

Insurance for medical payments – Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance provide coverage for bills for funeral costs, chiropractic care and doctor visits. They can be used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance policy or if you lack health insurance entirely. Coverage applies to you and your occupants in addition to any family member struck as a pedestrian. PIP is only offered in select states and may carry a deductible

Uninsured Motorist or Underinsured Motorist insurance – This protects you and your vehicle when the “other guys” are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. Covered losses include hospital bills for your injuries and damage to your Volvo XC90.

Since a lot of drivers have only the minimum liability required by law, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. This is the reason having UM/UIM coverage is very important. Frequently your uninsured/underinsured motorist coverages are similar to your liability insurance amounts.

Auto liability – This coverage will cover damages or injuries you inflict on people or other property. It protects you from legal claims by others, and doesn’t cover damage sustained by your vehicle in an accident.

Liability coverage has three limits: per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. You might see values of 100/300/100 that translate to $100,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, a total of $300,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and $100,000 of coverage for damaged propery. Alternatively, you may have one number which is a combined single limit which limits claims to one amount without having the split limit caps.

Liability coverage protects against things such as emergency aid, repair bills for other people’s vehicles, repair costs for stationary objects, bail bonds and structural damage. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is up to you, but buy as high a limit as you can afford.

Collision coverage – Collision insurance will pay to fix damage to your XC90 caused by collision with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. You first must pay a deductible and then insurance will cover the remainder.

Collision coverage pays for things like sideswiping another vehicle, crashing into a building, scraping a guard rail, sustaining damage from a pot hole and damaging your car on a curb. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from lower value vehicles. Another option is to choose a higher deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.
