Understanding the coverages of car insurance aids in choosing the right coverages and the correct deductibles and limits. Car insurance terms can be difficult to understand and nobody wants to actually read their policy. These are the normal coverages found on the average car insurance policy.
Collision coverage – Collision coverage covers damage to your Soul caused by collision with an object or car. You first must pay a deductible then your collision coverage will kick in.
Collision coverage protects against things such as crashing into a ditch, sideswiping another vehicle, hitting a parking meter and rolling your car. This coverage can be expensive, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from vehicles that are 8 years or older. Drivers also have the option to choose a higher deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.
Coverage for medical expenses – Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage reimburse you for short-term medical expenses for things like ambulance fees, EMT expenses and hospital visits. They can be utilized in addition to your health insurance policy or if you are not covered by health insurance. Medical payments and PIP cover both the driver and occupants in addition to being hit by a car walking across the street. Personal injury protection coverage is not available in all states and may carry a deductible
Coverage for liability – Liability insurance provides protection from damage or injury you incur to a person or their property. It protects you from legal claims by others. It does not cover damage to your own property or vehicle.
Liability coverage has three limits: bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. Your policy might show limits of 50/100/50 which means $50,000 bodily injury coverage, a limit of $100,000 in injury protection per accident, and property damage coverage for $50,000.
Liability can pay for claims like bail bonds, emergency aid, court costs, attorney fees and repair costs for stationary objects. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is a decision to put some thought into, but you should buy as much as you can afford.
Coverage for uninsured or underinsured drivers – Your UM/UIM coverage protects you and your vehicle’s occupants when other motorists do not carry enough liability coverage. It can pay for injuries sustained by your vehicle’s occupants as well as damage to your Kia Soul.
Since a lot of drivers only carry the minimum required liability limits, it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages is important protection for you and your family.
Comprehensive car insurance – Comprehensive insurance will pay to fix damage from a wide range of events other than collision. You first have to pay a deductible then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive coverage pays for things such as falling objects, rock chips in glass, a broken windshield, a tree branch falling on your vehicle and hitting a deer. The most you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the market value of your vehicle, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value it’s probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.
While you’re price shopping online, make sure you don’t sacrifice coverage to reduce premiums. Too many times, someone sacrificed uninsured motorist or liability limits and learned later that it was a big error on their part. Your aim should be to buy enough coverage at a price you can afford, not the least amount of coverage.
Budget-conscious 2015 Kia Soul insurance is possible on the web and with local insurance agents, so you should compare both to have the best selection. Some insurance providers do not offer the ability to get a quote online and these smaller companies work with independent agents.
