Learning about specific coverages of insurance helps when choosing the right coverages at the best deductibles and correct limits. The coverage terms in a policy can be confusing and nobody wants to actually read their policy. Listed below are the usual coverages found on the average insurance policy.
Uninsured and underinsured coverage – Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage provides protection when the “other guys” either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. This coverage pays for injuries to you and your family as well as your vehicle’s damage.
Since many drivers carry very low liability coverage limits, it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is very important.
Comprehensive coverages – This pays for damage that is not covered by collision coverage. A deductible will apply and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive coverage protects against claims such as a tree branch falling on your vehicle, vandalism, hitting a deer and falling objects. The maximum payout your insurance company will pay is the market value of your vehicle, so if the vehicle is not worth much it’s not worth carrying full coverage.
Coverage for medical payments – Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP reimburse you for immediate expenses such as X-ray expenses, funeral costs and nursing services. They can be utilized in addition to your health insurance policy or if you are not covered by health insurance. It covers both the driver and occupants in addition to getting struck while a pedestrian. Personal injury protection coverage is not universally available and may carry a deductible
Coverage for liability – This coverage protects you from damages or injuries you inflict on people or other property that is your fault. This insurance protects YOU against other people’s claims. It does not cover damage sustained by your vehicle in an accident.
Coverage consists of three different limits, per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. You commonly see values of 50/100/50 that means you have $50,000 bodily injury coverage, $100,000 for the entire accident, and $50,000 of coverage for damaged propery.
Liability insurance covers things such as repair costs for stationary objects, structural damage, loss of income, legal defense fees and funeral expenses. How much coverage you buy is up to you, but consider buying as much as you can afford.
Collision – This pays for damage to your QX56 resulting from a collision with another car or object. You have to pay a deductible then your collision coverage will kick in.
Collision insurance covers claims like damaging your car on a curb, rolling your car, colliding with a tree and sustaining damage from a pot hole. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so consider removing coverage from vehicles that are older. You can also raise the deductible to save money on collision insurance.
