Liability auto insurance
Liability insurance protects you from damage that occurs to other people or property by causing an accident. This coverage protects you against other people’s claims. Liability doesn’t cover your injuries or vehicle damage.
Split limit liability has three limits of coverage: bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. You might see limits of 25/50/25 which means a limit of $25,000 per injured person, $50,000 for the entire accident, and property damage coverage for $25,000. Occasionally you may see one limit called combined single limit (CSL) which provides one coverage limit and claims can be made without the split limit restrictions.
Liability insurance covers things like court costs, medical services and pain and suffering. How much liability should you purchase? That is your choice, but buy as large an amount as possible.
Uninsured and underinsured coverage
Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage gives you protection when the “other guys” are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. This coverage pays for injuries sustained by your vehicle’s occupants and damage to your Kia K900.
Because many people only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, their limits can quickly be used up. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages is important protection for you and your family. Usually these coverages are similar to your liability insurance amounts.
Comprehensive insurance coverage will pay to fix damage that is not covered by collision coverage. You first have to pay a deductible then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive insurance covers things like damage from flooding, falling objects and theft. The most you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the ACV or actual cash value, so if it’s not worth much more than your deductible it’s probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.
This covers damage to your K900 resulting from colliding with an object or car. You have to pay a deductible and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.
Collision insurance covers claims such as hitting a parking meter, colliding with a tree, driving through your garage door, sustaining damage from a pot hole and crashing into a building. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so consider removing coverage from vehicles that are older. You can also raise the deductible to save money on collision insurance.
Coverage for medical payments
Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance pay for short-term medical expenses like EMT expenses, pain medications, rehabilitation expenses and hospital visits. They are utilized in addition to your health insurance policy or if you are not covered by health insurance. They cover both the driver and occupants and will also cover any family member struck as a pedestrian. Personal Injury Protection is not available in all states but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage

As you prepare to switch companies, never buy lower coverage limits just to save a few bucks.

Your goal should be to get the best coverage possible at a price you can afford, not the least amount of coverage.
