Having a good grasp of insurance aids in choosing the right coverages at the best deductibles and correct limits. The terms used in a policy can be impossible to understand and reading a policy is terribly boring.
Coverage for medical expenses
Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage kick in for bills for things like dental work, EMT expenses, funeral costs and hospital visits. They can be used to fill the gap from your health insurance policy or if you are not covered by health insurance. They cover not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants in addition to if you are hit as a while walking down the street. Personal Injury Protection is not available in all states but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage
Collision coverage protection
Collision coverage will pay to fix damage to your Thunderbird resulting from colliding with an object or car. You will need to pay your deductible and then insurance will cover the remainder.
Collision coverage protects against things like hitting a parking meter, scraping a guard rail, driving through your garage door and colliding with another moving vehicle. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so consider dropping it from older vehicles. You can also bump up the deductible to bring the cost down.
Coverage for uninsured or underinsured drivers
Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage protects you and your vehicle when the “other guys” do not carry enough liability coverage. It can pay for injuries to you and your family as well as your vehicle’s damage.
Since a lot of drivers have only the minimum liability required by law, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. This is the reason having UM/UIM coverage is important protection for you and your family. Normally your uninsured/underinsured motorist coverages are identical to your policy’s liability coverage.
Auto liability insurance
This can cover damages or injuries you inflict on other people or property that is your fault. Liability coverage has three limits: bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. Your policy might show liability limits of 50/100/50 that means you have $50,000 bodily injury coverage, a total of $100,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and property damage coverage for $50,000. Some companies may use a combined limit which provides one coverage limit without having the split limit caps.
Liability can pay for claims like repair bills for other people’s vehicles, medical expenses, legal defense fees and pain and suffering. How much coverage you buy is a personal decision, but you should buy higher limits if possible.
Comprehensive insurance coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage that is not covered by collision coverage. A deductible will apply then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive insurance covers claims such as falling objects, rock chips in glass, damage from flooding and a broken windshield. The maximum payout your insurance company will pay is the market value of your vehicle, so if the vehicle is not worth much consider removing comprehensive coverage.
