Knowing the specifics of a insurance policy aids in choosing the right coverages and proper limits and deductibles. The coverage terms in a policy can be confusing and even agents have difficulty translating policy wording. These are typical coverages found on the average insurance policy.
Liability coverage provides protection from damage that occurs to a person or their property that is your fault. It protects you against claims from other people, and doesn’t cover damage to your own property or vehicle.
Coverage consists of three different limits, bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. As an example, you may have policy limits of 25/50/25 which means $25,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, a limit of $50,000 in injury protection per accident, and a limit of $25,000 paid for damaged property. Alternatively, you may have a combined single limit or CSL which provides one coverage limit with no separate limits for injury or property damage.
Liability can pay for things like pain and suffering, funeral expenses and emergency aid. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is a decision to put some thought into, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase as high a limit as you can afford.
Collision coverage pays for damage to your Sonata Hybrid resulting from colliding with another car or object. A deductible applies then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.
Collision insurance covers things like colliding with another moving vehicle, backing into a parked car, crashing into a building and sideswiping another vehicle. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from older vehicles. You can also increase the deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.
This coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You first must pay your deductible and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.
Comprehensive coverage pays for things such as hail damage, a broken windshield, hitting a deer, damage from a tornado or hurricane and damage from getting keyed. The most you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the actual cash value, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value consider dropping full coverage.
Med pay and PIP coverage provide coverage for expenses like dental work, ambulance fees, X-ray expenses, surgery and nursing services. The coverages can be utilized in addition to your health insurance program or if you do not have health coverage. They cover you and your occupants and also covers if you are hit as a while walking down the street. PIP is not an option in every state but can be used in place of medical payments coverage
This coverage provides protection from other drivers when they either have no liability insurance or not enough. Covered claims include hospital bills for your injuries and also any damage incurred to your 2015 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid.
Since many drivers carry very low liability coverage limits, their limits can quickly be used up. This is the reason having UM/UIM coverage is very important. Normally these limits do not exceed the liability coverage limits.
