Comprehensive insurance covers damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You need to pay your deductible first then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive coverage pays for things such as vandalism, hitting a deer, theft, a broken windshield and damage from getting keyed. The most you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the market value of your vehicle, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value it’s probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.
This will pay to fix damage to your Town and Country from colliding with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. You will need to pay your deductible then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.
Collision coverage protects against claims such as scraping a guard rail, crashing into a building, damaging your car on a curb, backing into a parked car and hitting a parking meter. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so you might think about dropping it from vehicles that are older. Drivers also have the option to bump up the deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.
This protects you from damages or injuries you inflict on other’s property or people by causing an accident. It protects you from legal claims by others, and does not provide coverage for damage sustained by your vehicle in an accident.
Split limit liability has three limits of coverage: per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. You might see liability limits of 100/300/100 that means you have a $100,000 limit per person for injuries, $300,000 for the entire accident, and a total limit of $100,000 for damage to vehicles and 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 coverage pays for things such as repair bills for other people’s vehicles, legal defense fees, medical services and attorney fees. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is up to you, but buy higher limits if possible.
Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage kick in for expenses such as rehabilitation expenses, pain medications, nursing services, chiropractic care and ambulance fees. They can be utilized in addition to your health insurance policy or if you are not covered by health insurance. It covers both the driver and occupants as well as being hit by a car walking across the street. PIP coverage is not an option in every state and may carry a deductible
