Understanding the coverages of your policy aids in choosing appropriate coverage and proper limits and deductibles. Policy terminology can be confusing and coverage can change by endorsement. Shown next are the normal coverages found on the average insurance policy.
Collision coverage – This covers damage to your TT resulting from colliding with an object or car. You first must pay a deductible and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.
Collision coverage pays for claims like colliding with another moving vehicle, hitting a mailbox and crashing into a building. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so consider removing coverage from vehicles that are older. Another option is to choose a higher deductible to save money on collision insurance.
Coverage for medical payments – Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP kick in for bills like X-ray expenses, doctor visits, chiropractic care, funeral costs and EMT expenses. They are often used in conjunction with a health insurance program or if there is no health insurance coverage. They cover both the driver and occupants as well as getting struck while a pedestrian. PIP coverage is only offered in select states and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay
Coverage for liability – This coverage provides protection from damages or injuries you inflict on people or other property in an accident. This coverage protects you from legal claims by others. It does not cover damage to your own property or vehicle.
It consists of three limits, bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. Your policy might show values of 50/100/50 which stand for $50,000 bodily injury coverage, a limit of $100,000 in injury protection per accident, and $50,000 of coverage for damaged propery.
Liability insurance covers things such as pain and suffering, emergency aid and repair costs for stationary objects. How much liability should you purchase? That is a decision to put some thought into, but you should buy as much as you can afford.
Comprehensive coverages – Comprehensive insurance coverage will pay to fix damage caused by mother nature, theft, vandalism and other events. You first must pay your deductible then your comprehensive coverage will pay.
Comprehensive can pay for claims like rock chips in glass, hitting a deer and a broken windshield. The most your insurance company will pay is the cash value of the vehicle, so if the vehicle’s value is low consider removing comprehensive coverage.
Uninsured and underinsured coverage – Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage protects you and your vehicle from other motorists when they do not carry enough liability coverage. Covered losses include hospital bills for your injuries as well as damage to your 2014 Audi TT.
Since many drivers have only the minimum liability required by law, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. This is the reason having UM/UIM coverage is important protection for you and your family.
