Knowing the specifics of your policy can help you determine appropriate coverage and the correct deductibles and limits. The coverage terms in a policy can be confusing and coverage can change by endorsement.
Liability insurance will cover damage that occurs to people or other property that is your fault. It protects you from legal claims by others. It does not cover damage sustained by your vehicle in an accident.
It consists of three limits, bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. You might see policy limits of 100/300/100 which means $100,000 bodily injury coverage, a total of $300,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and a total limit of $100,000 for damage to vehicles and property. Some companies may use a combined single limit or CSL which combines the three limits into one amount rather than limiting it on a per person basis.
Liability insurance covers claims like medical services, repair costs for stationary objects, loss of income and court costs. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is your choice, but buy as large an amount as possible.
This covers damage to your 740 resulting from colliding with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. You have to pay a deductible then your collision coverage will kick in.
Collision coverage pays for things such as sustaining damage from a pot hole, damaging your car on a curb and sideswiping another vehicle. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so consider removing coverage from lower value vehicles. It’s also possible to bump up the deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.
Med pay and Personal Injury Protection (PIP)
Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP kick in for expenses such as EMT expenses, rehabilitation expenses, doctor visits, nursing services and chiropractic care. The coverages can be used in conjunction with a health insurance policy or if there is no health insurance coverage. Coverage applies to not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants as well as any family member struck as a pedestrian. PIP is not available in all states and may carry a deductible
Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist (UM/UIM)
Your UM/UIM coverage gives you protection when the “other guys” do not carry enough liability coverage. Covered losses include injuries to you and your family and damage to your 1991 Volvo 740.
Since many 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. Usually these limits are similar to your liability insurance amounts.
This coverage will pay to fix damage caused by mother nature, theft, vandalism and other events. You first have to pay a deductible and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.
Comprehensive coverage pays for claims such as falling objects, damage from a tornado or hurricane, a broken windshield, fire damage and a tree branch falling on your vehicle. The maximum amount your auto insurance company will pay is the ACV or actual cash value, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value it’s probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.
