Learning about specific coverages of your insurance policy can help you determine which coverages you need at the best deductibles and correct limits. Insurance terms can be impossible to understand and even agents have difficulty translating policy wording. These are the usual coverages found on most insurance policies.
This coverage covers damage to your RL caused by collision with an object or car. You first must pay a deductible then your collision coverage will kick in.
Collision coverage protects against things such as damaging your car on a curb, sideswiping another vehicle, rolling your car and driving through your garage door. This coverage can be expensive, so consider removing coverage from vehicles that are 8 years or older. Drivers also have the option to choose a higher deductible to save money on collision insurance.
Med pay and PIP coverage kick in for short-term medical expenses for things like ambulance fees, funeral costs and chiropractic care. They are used to fill the gap from your health insurance policy or if you do not have health coverage. Medical payments and PIP cover not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants and also covers if you are hit as a while walking down the street. PIP coverage is not available in all states but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage
Comprehensive insurance coverage pays for damage caused by mother nature, theft, vandalism and other events. You first must pay your deductible and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive coverage pays for things like vandalism, damage from a tornado or hurricane, theft, a broken windshield and damage from getting keyed. The maximum amount you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the cash value of the 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 from other motorists when they either have no liability insurance or not enough. It can pay for injuries sustained by your vehicle’s occupants and also any damage incurred to your Acura RL.
Because many people have only the minimum liability required by law, it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages should not be overlooked.
Liability insurance will cover injuries or damage you cause to other’s property or people that is your fault. It protects YOU from claims by other people, and does not provide coverage for damage to your own property or vehicle.
Coverage consists of three different limits, bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. Your policy might show limits of 25/50/25 that means you have a $25,000 limit per person for injuries, a total of $50,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and property damage coverage for $25,000.
Liability insurance covers claims such as court costs, repair costs for stationary objects, legal defense fees and medical expenses. How much liability coverage do you need? That is a decision to put some thought into, but you should buy higher limits if possible.
