Car insurance 101

Understanding the coverages of insurance can be of help when determining which coverages you need and the correct deductibles and limits. The terms used in a policy can be confusing and even agents have difficulty translating policy wording. Shown next are the normal coverages available from insurance companies.

Collision coverages – This pays to fix your vehicle from damage resulting from colliding with a stationary object or other vehicle. You first must pay a deductible and then insurance will cover the remainder.

Collision coverage pays for claims such as hitting a parking meter, colliding with another moving vehicle and crashing into a building. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so consider removing coverage from older vehicles. Another option is to choose a higher deductible to save money on collision insurance.

Auto liability – This coverage can cover injuries or damage you cause to other’s property or people that is your fault. This insurance protects YOU against other people’s claims, and doesn’t cover your own vehicle damage or injuries.

Coverage consists of three different limits, bodily injury for each person injured, bodily injury for the entire accident and a property damage limit. You commonly see values of 100/300/100 that translate to $100,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, a per accident bodily injury limit of $300,000, and $100,000 of coverage for damaged propery. Another option is a combined limit which combines the three limits into one amount and claims can be made without the split limit restrictions.

Liability insurance covers claims such as funeral expenses, bail bonds, attorney fees, repair costs for stationary objects and medical services. How much coverage you buy is a personal decision, but consider buying as high a limit as you can afford.

Protection from uninsured/underinsured drivers – This coverage protects you and your vehicle’s occupants from other drivers when they either have no liability insurance or not enough. It can pay for hospital bills for your injuries and also any damage incurred to your Porsche 911.

Because many people only carry the minimum required liability limits, it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. This is the reason having UM/UIM coverage is a good idea. Normally the UM/UIM limits do not exceed the liability coverage limits.

Comprehensive (Other than Collision) – Comprehensive insurance coverage pays for damage from a wide range of events other than collision. A deductible will apply then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage.

Comprehensive coverage protects against claims like theft, hitting a deer, rock chips in glass, falling objects and damage from flooding. The highest amount your insurance company will pay is the actual cash value, so if the vehicle’s value is low it’s probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.

Medical expense insurance – Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage provide coverage for immediate expenses like surgery, funeral costs and chiropractic care. They are used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance policy or if there is no health insurance coverage. They cover you and your occupants as well as being hit by a car walking across the street. PIP is not universally available but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage
