Understanding the coverages of your policy can help you determine the best coverages and proper limits and deductibles. The coverage terms in a policy can be confusing and nobody wants to actually read their policy.
Coverage for uninsured or underinsured drivers – This protects you and your vehicle’s occupants from other drivers when they are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. This coverage pays for injuries to you and your family and damage to your 2012 GMC Acadia.
Because many people only carry the minimum required liability limits, it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage should not be overlooked. Frequently the UM/UIM limits are similar to your liability insurance amounts.
Coverage for medical expenses – Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage pay for immediate expenses for ambulance fees, dental work and hospital visits. They are used in conjunction with a health insurance plan or if you lack health insurance entirely. Coverage applies to not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants and will also cover being hit by a car walking across the street. Personal Injury Protection is not universally available but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage
Collision coverages – This coverage pays for damage to your Acadia from colliding with another car or object. 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, backing into a parked car, crashing into a building and hitting a mailbox. This coverage can be expensive, so consider removing coverage from vehicles that are older. Drivers also have the option to choose a higher deductible to save money on collision insurance.
Liability coverage – This coverage can cover damage that occurs to a person or their property in an accident. This insurance protects YOU from legal claims by others, and does not provide coverage for your own vehicle damage or injuries.
It consists of three limits, bodily injury for each person injured, bodily injury for the entire accident and a property damage limit. Your policy might show values of 25/50/25 which stand for a $25,000 limit per person for injuries, a per accident bodily injury limit of $50,000, and $25,000 of coverage for damaged propery. Another option is a combined limit which provides one coverage limit without having the split limit caps.
Liability insurance covers things like bail bonds, legal defense fees, pain and suffering and structural damage. How much coverage you buy is a personal decision, but you should buy higher limits if possible.
Comprehensive car insurance – This covers damage caused by mother nature, theft, vandalism and other events. A deductible will apply and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.
Comprehensive coverage protects against things such as hitting a deer, a tree branch falling on your vehicle, a broken windshield and hitting a bird. The most you’ll receive from a claim is the actual cash value, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value consider dropping full coverage.
