Car insurance coverage breakdown

Understanding the coverages of your policy can be of help when determining appropriate coverage for your vehicles. Policy terminology can be ambiguous and coverage can change by endorsement. Shown next are the normal coverages available from car insurance companies.

Collision insurance

This coverage covers damage to your CTS Wagon caused by collision 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 pays for things like colliding with another moving vehicle, sideswiping another vehicle, hitting a parking meter and sustaining damage from a pot hole. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so you might think about dropping it from vehicles that are 8 years or older. Another option is to bump up the deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.

Comprehensive (Other than Collision)

Comprehensive insurance covers 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 pays for things such as falling objects, damage from flooding, hitting a bird, hail damage and fire damage. The most you’ll receive from a claim is the cash value of the vehicle, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value it’s not worth carrying full coverage.

Protection from uninsured/underinsured drivers

This protects you and your vehicle when the “other guys” are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. Covered claims include injuries to you and your family and damage to your 2012 Cadillac CTS Wagon.

Due to the fact that many drivers have only the minimum liability required by law, it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is very important.

Liability auto insurance

Liability coverage will cover injuries or damage you cause to a person or their property by causing an accident. This insurance protects YOU from legal claims by others, and doesn’t cover damage sustained by your vehicle in an accident.

Split limit liability has three limits of coverage: per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. Your policy might show policy limits of 50/100/50 which stand for $50,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, a total of $100,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and a limit of $50,000 paid for damaged property.

Liability coverage protects against claims such as funeral expenses, loss of income and structural damage. How much coverage you buy is up to you, but you should buy as high a limit as you can afford.

Medical expense insurance

Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP provide coverage for expenses for things like prosthetic devices, X-ray expenses and doctor visits. The coverages can be used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance policy or if you lack health insurance entirely. Medical payments and PIP cover both the driver and occupants as well as getting struck while a pedestrian. PIP is not an option in every state but can be used in place of medical payments coverage
