For instance, a preferred risk might be between 25 and 40, insures multiple vehicles, and has great credit.

Learning about specific coverages of auto insurance helps when choosing the right coverages and the correct deductibles and limits. The coverage terms in a policy can be difficult to understand and even agents have difficulty translating policy wording.
Uninsured or underinsured coverage – This coverage provides protection from other motorists when they either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. It can pay for medical payments for you and your occupants as well as your vehicle’s damage.
Due to the fact that many drivers carry very low liability coverage limits, it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. So UM/UIM coverage is very important.
Medical expense coverage – Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance pay for expenses such as prosthetic devices, doctor visits, EMT expenses and surgery. The coverages can be utilized in addition to your health insurance policy or if you do not have health coverage. It covers all vehicle occupants and will also cover any family member struck as a pedestrian. Personal Injury Protection is not an option in every state but can be used in place of medical payments coverage
Collision – This will pay to fix damage to your Rogue resulting from colliding with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. You have to pay a deductible then your collision coverage will kick in.
Collision can pay for claims like hitting a mailbox, crashing into a ditch, backing into a parked car, driving through your garage door and colliding with another moving vehicle. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so consider dropping it from vehicles that are 8 years or older. It’s also possible to raise the deductible to bring the cost down.
Comprehensive protection – Comprehensive insurance pays for damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You first have to pay a deductible and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive insurance covers things like a broken windshield, fire damage, hitting a deer, theft and damage from getting keyed. The highest amount you’ll receive from a claim is the actual cash value, so if it’s not worth much more than your deductible it’s not worth carrying full coverage.
Liability – This can cover damage or injury you incur to other people or property that is your fault. It protects you against other people’s claims, and doesn’t 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. As an example, you may have liability limits of 25/50/25 that translate to $25,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, a per accident bodily injury limit of $50,000, and a total limit of $25,000 for damage to vehicles and property.
Liability insurance covers claims like repair costs for stationary objects, emergency aid and legal defense fees. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is a decision to put some thought into, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase as high a limit as you can afford.
