Having a good grasp of auto insurance aids in choosing the best coverages for your vehicles. The terms used in a policy can be ambiguous and reading a policy is terribly boring. Listed below are typical coverage types found on most auto insurance policies.
Collision coverage – This coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage resulting from a collision with a stationary object or other vehicle. You will need to pay your deductible then your collision coverage will kick in.
Collision coverage pays for things like backing into a parked car, crashing into a building, hitting a mailbox and colliding with another moving vehicle. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so you might think about dropping it from older vehicles. Another option is to bump up the deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.
Liability – This coverage can cover damages or injuries you inflict on people or other property in an accident. It protects YOU from legal claims by others, and does not provide coverage for your injuries or vehicle damage.
It consists of three limits, bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. As an example, you may have values of 50/100/50 that means you have a $50,000 limit per person for injuries, a per accident bodily injury limit of $100,000, and $50,000 of coverage for damaged propery.
Liability can pay for things such as funeral expenses, structural damage, repair bills for other people’s vehicles and legal defense fees. How much liability coverage do you need? That is your choice, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase higher limits if possible.
Comprehensive coverage – Comprehensive insurance pays for damage that is not covered by collision coverage. You first must pay your deductible and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.
Comprehensive coverage pays for claims like hail damage, a broken windshield and rock chips in glass. The maximum amount your auto insurance company will pay is the cash value of the vehicle, so if the vehicle’s value is low consider dropping full coverage.
Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage – Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage provides protection when the “other guys” are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. Covered losses include injuries to you and your family and damage to your Hyundai Genesis.
Since a lot of drivers carry very low liability coverage limits, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is important protection for you and your family.
Medical payments coverage and PIP – Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance reimburse you for expenses like chiropractic care, doctor visits and surgery. The coverages can be utilized in addition to your health insurance policy or if there is no health insurance coverage. They cover all vehicle occupants and will also cover any family member struck as a pedestrian. Personal injury protection coverage is not an option in every state but can be used in place of medical payments coverage
