Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage provide coverage for expenses for dental work, chiropractic care, surgery and X-ray expenses. They can be used in conjunction with a health insurance program or if you lack health insurance entirely.

PIP coverage is not universally available but can be used in place of medical payments coverage
This pays to fix your vehicle from damage that is not covered by collision coverage. A deductible will apply and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.
Comprehensive can pay for claims like damage from flooding, a broken windshield, rock chips in glass, damage from getting keyed and falling objects. The highest amount your insurance company will pay is the market value of your vehicle, so if the vehicle is not worth much it’s not worth carrying full coverage.
Liability coverage provides protection from injuries or damage you cause to other’s property or people by causing an accident. This coverage protects you from claims by other people. It does not cover your injuries or vehicle damage.
It consists of three limits, per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. You commonly see policy limits of 25/50/25 which means a $25,000 limit per person for injuries, $50,000 for the entire accident, and a total limit of $25,000 for damage to vehicles and property. Alternatively, you may have a combined limit that pays claims from the same limit with no separate limits for injury or property damage.
Liability insurance covers claims like bail bonds, funeral expenses and medical services. How much liability should you purchase? That is up to you, but buy higher limits if possible.
Your UM/UIM coverage protects you and your vehicle when other motorists are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. Covered claims include injuries sustained by your vehicle’s occupants and also any damage incurred to your 1990 Ford Five Hundred.
Since a lot of drivers only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. This is the reason having UM/UIM coverage is a good idea. Normally the UM/UIM limits do not exceed the liability coverage limits.
Collision coverage covers damage to your Five Hundred resulting from colliding with a stationary object or other vehicle. You first must pay a deductible then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.
Collision can pay for things such as sideswiping another vehicle, hitting a parking meter and hitting a mailbox. This coverage can be expensive, so consider dropping it from vehicles that are 8 years or older. Drivers also have the option to choose a higher deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.
Drivers who switch companies do it for a number of reasons such as policy cancellation, not issuing a premium refund, extreme rates for teen drivers and even high rates after DUI convictions. It doesn’t matter why you want to switch choosing a new insurance company is actually quite simple.
