Knowing the specifics of a car insurance policy can help you determine which coverages you need and the correct deductibles and limits. Policy terminology can be difficult to understand and reading a policy is terribly boring. These are typical coverages offered by car insurance companies.
Comprehensive auto coverage – Comprehensive insurance pays for damage from a wide range of events other than collision. You first must pay your deductible then your comprehensive coverage will pay.
Comprehensive coverage pays for things such as fire damage, rock chips in glass, vandalism, a broken windshield and damage from getting keyed. The most you’ll receive from a claim is the cash value of the vehicle, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value consider removing comprehensive coverage.
Medical payments and PIP coverage – Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP provide coverage for bills like pain medications, prosthetic devices, hospital visits, rehabilitation expenses and nursing services. The coverages can be used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance policy or if you are not covered by health insurance. They cover both the driver and occupants and will also cover getting struck while a pedestrian. PIP is only offered in select states but can be used in place of medical payments coverage
Liability car insurance – This can cover damage that occurs to other’s property or people by causing an accident. 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 commonly see liability limits of 25/50/25 that translate to a limit of $25,000 per injured person, a per accident bodily injury limit of $50,000, and a total limit of $25,000 for damage to vehicles and property.
Liability can pay for things like court costs, bail bonds and repair costs for stationary objects. How much liability should you purchase? That is your choice, but consider buying as large an amount as possible.
UM/UIM (Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist) coverage – Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage gives you protection from other drivers when they either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. Covered losses include medical payments for you and your occupants as well as your vehicle’s damage.
Because many people only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. So UM/UIM coverage should not be overlooked.
Collision coverages – This will pay to fix damage to your Quest caused by collision with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. You will need to pay your deductible and then insurance will cover the remainder.
Collision coverage protects against things like crashing into a ditch, hitting a parking meter, sideswiping another vehicle, sustaining damage from a pot hole and backing into a parked car. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so consider removing coverage from lower value vehicles. Drivers also have the option to bump up the deductible to save money on collision insurance.
