Insurance for medical payments – Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance reimburse you for immediate expenses such as dental work, pain medications, hospital visits, X-ray expenses and chiropractic care. 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 in addition to any family member struck as a pedestrian. Personal injury protection coverage is not universally available and may carry a deductible
Coverage for liability – Liability coverage protects you from damage or injury you incur to other’s property or people that is your fault. It protects you against claims from other people. It does not 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 50/100/50 that translate to $50,000 bodily injury coverage, $100,000 for the entire accident, and a limit of $50,000 paid for damaged property.
Liability coverage protects against claims like pain and suffering, funeral expenses and bail bonds. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is a decision to put some thought into, but you should buy as much as you can afford.
Comprehensive coverage (or Other than Collision) – Comprehensive insurance pays to fix your vehicle from damage caused by mother nature, theft, vandalism and other events. You first must pay your deductible and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive can pay for claims such as rock chips in glass, hitting a deer, damage from flooding and damage from a tornado or hurricane. The maximum amount you’ll receive from a claim is the market value of your vehicle, so if the vehicle is not worth much it’s not worth carrying full coverage.
