Understanding the coverages of a auto insurance policy helps when choosing which coverages you need and the correct deductibles and limits. Auto insurance terms can be confusing and coverage can change by endorsement.
Collision coverage covers damage to your Raider resulting from colliding with an object or car. You will need to pay your deductible then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.
Collision coverage protects against things such as colliding with another moving vehicle, crashing into a ditch, hitting a mailbox, hitting a parking meter and colliding with a tree. This coverage can be expensive, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from vehicles that are 8 years or older. Drivers also have the option to bump up the deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.
This coverage provides protection when other motorists either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. This coverage pays for medical payments for you and your occupants as well as your vehicle’s damage.
Because many people carry very low liability coverage limits, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. So UM/UIM coverage is very important.
Liability insurance provides protection from injuries or damage you cause to other people or property by causing an accident. It protects you from legal claims by others, and doesn’t cover your own vehicle damage or injuries.
Split limit liability has three limits of coverage: bodily injury for each person injured, bodily injury for the entire accident and a property damage limit. You commonly see limits of 25/50/25 which stand for $25,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, a limit of $50,000 in injury protection per accident, and property damage coverage for $25,000.
Liability coverage protects against claims such as repair costs for stationary objects, emergency aid, bail bonds and medical expenses. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is a personal decision, but consider buying as high a limit as you can afford.
Comprehensive insurance coverage covers damage from a wide range of events other than collision. You need to pay your deductible first and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.
Comprehensive coverage pays for claims like vandalism, hitting a deer and theft. The highest amount you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the ACV or actual cash value, so if the vehicle’s value is low consider dropping full coverage.
Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance provide coverage for expenses like pain medications, doctor visits and prosthetic devices. They are used in conjunction with a health insurance program or if there is no health insurance coverage. They cover you and your occupants and also covers any family member struck as a pedestrian. PIP is not an option in every state but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage
