Collision coverage covers damage to your Routan caused by collision with an object or car. A deductible applies and then insurance will cover the remainder.
Collision coverage pays for claims such as sustaining damage from a pot hole, colliding with another moving vehicle, damaging your car on a curb, driving through your garage door and colliding with a tree. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so consider dropping it from vehicles that are 8 years or older. Another option is to increase the deductible to bring the cost down.
Uninsured and underinsured coverage
This coverage provides protection when the “other guys” do not carry enough liability coverage. This coverage pays for hospital bills for your injuries as well as damage to your Volkswagen Routan.
Since many drivers carry very low liability coverage limits, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. This is the reason having UM/UIM coverage is important protection for you and your family.
This 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 coverage pays for claims like hitting a bird, theft and falling objects. The maximum amount a insurance company will pay at claim time is the actual cash value, so if the vehicle’s value is low it’s probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.
This coverage protects you from damage or injury you incur to people or other property by causing an accident. 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. As an example, you may have values of 25/50/25 that translate to $25,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, $50,000 for the entire accident, and $25,000 of coverage for damaged propery.
Liability insurance covers claims like structural damage, court costs, repair costs for stationary objects and loss of income. How much coverage you buy is a personal decision, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase as high a limit as you can afford.
Coverage for medical payments
Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance reimburse you for expenses for things like doctor visits, pain medications, surgery, rehabilitation expenses and chiropractic care. They can be used to fill the gap from your health insurance plan 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 not an option in every state and may carry a deductible
