  • Should I file a claim if it’s only slightly more than my deductible?
  • Which is better, split liability limits or combined limits?
  • Do I have coverage when pulling a U-Haul trailer?
  • Is pleasure use cheaper than using my 1996 Cadillac Seville to commute?
  • Can I afford to buy a different vehicle if my 1996 Cadillac Seville is totaled?
  • Does insurance cover tools stolen from my truck?
  • Should I get collision insurance on every vehicle?
  • Am I covered if I drive in a foreign country?
  • How many claims can I have before being cancelled?
  • When does my teenage driver need to be added to my policy?

If it’s difficult to answer those questions but you know they apply to you, you might consider talking to a licensed insurance agent. To find an agent in your area, complete this form or you can go here for a list of companies in your area.

What car insurance coverages do you need?

Understanding the coverages of your car insurance policy helps when choosing which coverages you need and proper limits and deductibles. Policy terminology can be impossible to understand and nobody wants to actually read their policy. Listed below are typical coverage types offered by car insurance companies.

UM/UIM Coverage

This coverage gives you protection when the “other guys” either have no liability insurance or not enough. It can pay for hospital bills for your injuries as well as damage to your Cadillac Seville.

Because many people have only the minimum liability required by law, their limits can quickly be used up. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is a good idea. Usually these limits are identical to your policy’s liability coverage.

Coverage for collisions

This pays to fix your vehicle from damage resulting from colliding with another car or object. A deductible applies then your collision coverage will kick in.

Collision insurance covers things like hitting a parking meter, sideswiping another vehicle, colliding with another moving vehicle, rolling your car and crashing into a building. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from older vehicles. It’s also possible to bump up the deductible to bring the cost down.

Medical costs insurance

Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage kick in for immediate expenses like pain medications, doctor visits, X-ray expenses, dental work and chiropractic care. They are often used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance program or if you are not covered by health insurance. They cover all vehicle occupants and will also cover any family member struck as a pedestrian. Personal Injury Protection is not available in all states and may carry a deductible

Comprehensive or Other Than Collision

Comprehensive insurance pays for damage caused by mother nature, theft, vandalism and other events. You first have to pay a deductible then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage.

Comprehensive coverage protects against things such as falling objects, fire damage and hail damage. The highest amount you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the cash value of the vehicle, so if the vehicle is not worth much it’s probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.

Auto liability

Liability coverage will cover damage that occurs to a person or their property. This insurance protects YOU against claims from other people. Liability doesn’t cover your injuries or vehicle damage.

It consists of three limits, bodily injury for each person injured, bodily injury for the entire accident and a property damage limit. You commonly see values of 50/100/50 that means you have $50,000 bodily injury coverage, a limit of $100,000 in injury protection per accident, and property damage coverage for $50,000. Another option is one limit called combined single limit (CSL) which combines the three limits into one amount rather than limiting it on a per person basis.

Liability coverage protects against things like emergency aid, medical expenses, bail bonds, legal defense fees and loss of income. How much coverage you buy is a decision to put some thought into, but consider buying as large an amount as possible.
