Knowing the specifics of auto insurance aids in choosing which coverages you need at the best deductibles and correct limits. The terms used in a policy can be difficult to understand and reading a policy is terribly boring. Shown next are typical coverages found on most auto insurance policies.
This coverage protects you from damage that occurs to other’s property or people that is your fault. It protects you from claims by other people. It does not cover your own vehicle damage or injuries.
Coverage consists of three different limits, bodily injury for each person injured, bodily injury for the entire accident and a property damage limit. As an example, you may have values of 50/100/50 which means $50,000 bodily injury coverage, $100,000 for the entire accident, and $50,000 of coverage for damaged propery.
Liability insurance covers things like medical expenses, court costs, medical services and pain and suffering. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is a personal decision, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase as much as you can afford.
Comprehensive (Other than Collision)
Comprehensive insurance coverage will pay to fix damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. A deductible will apply then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive can pay for things like theft, damage from getting keyed, falling objects, fire damage and rock chips in glass. The maximum 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 probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.
Collision coverage protection
Collision insurance covers damage to your Aura Hybrid caused by collision with an object or car. You have to pay a deductible and then insurance will cover the remainder.
Collision coverage protects against things like hitting a mailbox, hitting a parking meter, colliding with a tree, colliding with another moving vehicle and driving through your garage door. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from older vehicles. Drivers also have the option to raise the deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.
Protection from uninsured/underinsured drivers
This gives you protection from other drivers when they do not carry enough liability coverage. Covered losses include medical payments for you and your occupants as well as damage to your Saturn Aura Hybrid.
Due to the fact that many drivers only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. So UM/UIM coverage should not be overlooked.
Medical expense insurance
Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage provide coverage for immediate expenses for things like EMT expenses, dental work and hospital visits. They are often used in conjunction with a health insurance plan or if you are not covered by health insurance. Medical payments and PIP cover all vehicle occupants in addition to being hit by a car walking across the street. PIP is not universally available and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay
