This protects you and your vehicle when the “other guys” do not carry enough liability coverage. It can pay for medical payments for you and your occupants as well as damage to your Mitsubishi Raider.
Due to the fact that many drivers have only the minimum liability required by law, it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. So UM/UIM coverage should not be overlooked.
This coverage covers damage to your Raider caused by collision with an object or car. A deductible applies and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.
Collision insurance covers claims such as rolling your car, hitting a mailbox, colliding with another moving vehicle, damaging your car on a curb and backing into a parked car. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so consider removing coverage from older vehicles. You can also increase the deductible to save money on collision insurance.
Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage provide coverage for short-term medical expenses for things like nursing services, rehabilitation expenses, X-ray expenses, prosthetic devices and doctor visits. The coverages can be utilized in addition to your health insurance policy or if you lack health insurance entirely. Medical payments and PIP cover both the driver and occupants in addition to being hit by a car walking across the street. PIP is not available in all states but can be used in place of medical payments coverage
Liability coverage can cover damages or injuries you inflict on a person or their property in an accident. It protects YOU from claims by other people, and doesn’t cover damage sustained by your vehicle in an accident.
It consists of three limits, per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. You commonly see policy limits of 25/50/25 which means $25,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, a per accident bodily injury limit of $50,000, and a limit of $25,000 paid for damaged property.
Liability coverage protects against things such as court costs, legal defense fees, structural damage, pain and suffering and emergency aid. How much liability coverage do you need? That is up to you, but consider buying as high a limit as you can afford.
Comprehensive insurance pays to fix your vehicle from damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You first have to pay a deductible then your comprehensive coverage will pay.
Comprehensive can pay for claims such as hitting a bird, a broken windshield and damage from a tornado or hurricane. The highest amount a insurance company will pay at claim time is the ACV or actual cash value, so if the vehicle is not worth much consider removing comprehensive coverage.
We just covered some good ideas how to shop for 2008 Mitsubishi Raider insurance online. It’s most important to understand that the more times you quote, the better your chances of lowering your rates. You may be surprised to find that the best price on insurance is with the least-expected company.

Your goal should be to get the best coverage possible at the best price, not the least amount of coverage.
