When it comes to choosing the best auto insurance coverage, there really is no single plan that fits everyone. Everyone’s situation is unique and your policy should reflect that. Here are some questions about coverages that can aid in determining whether you may require specific advice.

Having a good grasp of your insurance policy can be of help when determining which coverages you need and the correct deductibles and limits. The coverage terms in a policy can be confusing and coverage can change by endorsement. Shown next are typical coverage types offered by insurance companies.
Liability coverage will cover damage or injury you incur to people or other property by causing an accident. This insurance protects YOU from legal claims by others, and doesn’t cover your injuries or vehicle damage.
Split limit liability has three limits of coverage: bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. Your policy might show policy limits of 50/100/50 which stand for $50,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, a total of $100,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and a limit of $50,000 paid for damaged property. Another option is one number which is a combined single limit that pays claims from the same limit without having the split limit caps.
Liability coverage protects against claims like emergency aid, repair costs for stationary objects, court costs and repair bills for other people’s vehicles. How much coverage you buy is your choice, but you should buy as high a limit as you can afford.
This pays for damage that is not covered by collision coverage. You first must pay your deductible and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive insurance covers things like a tree branch falling on your vehicle, damage from getting keyed, fire damage, theft and damage from flooding. The maximum amount a insurance company will pay at claim time is the market value of your vehicle, so if it’s not worth much more than your deductible it’s not worth carrying full coverage.
Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage protects you and your vehicle when other motorists are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. This coverage pays for hospital bills for your injuries and damage to your Cadillac XLR.
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 a good idea. Usually your uninsured/underinsured motorist coverages are similar to your liability insurance amounts.
This coverage will pay to fix damage to your XLR resulting from colliding with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. You will need to pay your deductible then your collision coverage will kick in.
Collision can pay for things like sustaining damage from a pot hole, colliding with another moving vehicle, scraping a guard rail and driving through your garage door. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from older vehicles. It’s also possible to bump up the deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.
Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance reimburse you for bills for things like ambulance fees, doctor visits and chiropractic care. The coverages can be utilized in addition to your health insurance policy or if you are not covered by health insurance. Medical payments and PIP cover not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants and also covers any family member struck as a pedestrian. Personal injury protection coverage is only offered in select states but can be used in place of medical payments coverage
