Uninsured and underinsured coverage – Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage protects you and your vehicle when the “other guys” do not carry enough liability coverage. This coverage pays for hospital bills for your injuries and also any damage incurred to your Acura TL.
Due to the fact that many drivers have only the minimum liability required by law, their limits can quickly be used up. This is the reason having UM/UIM coverage is important protection for you and your family. Usually your uninsured/underinsured motorist coverages are set the same as your liablity limits.
Coverage for medical payments – Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage pay for immediate expenses for ambulance fees, EMT expenses and funeral costs. They are used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance policy or if you lack health insurance entirely. It covers you and your occupants in addition to if you are hit as a while walking down the street. Personal Injury Protection is not an option in every state and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay
Collision coverage – This pays for damage to your TL resulting from colliding with another car or object. You first must pay a deductible then your collision coverage will kick in.
Collision can pay for claims such as damaging your car on a curb, crashing into a ditch, crashing into a building, backing into a parked car and scraping a guard rail. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so consider dropping it from vehicles that are 8 years or older. Another option is to choose a higher deductible to save money on collision insurance.
Liability car insurance – This provides protection from damage or injury you incur to other people or property in an accident. This coverage protects you from legal claims by others. Liability doesn’t cover damage to your own property or vehicle.
Coverage consists of three different limits, bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. You commonly see liability limits of 100/300/100 that translate to $100,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, a per accident bodily injury limit of $300,000, and a total limit of $100,000 for damage to vehicles and property. Alternatively, you may have a combined limit that pays claims from the same limit and claims can be made without the split limit restrictions.
Liability coverage pays for things like funeral expenses, bail bonds and loss of income. How much liability should you purchase? That is up to you, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase higher limits if possible.
Comprehensive coverages – Comprehensive insurance pays to fix your vehicle from damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. A deductible will apply and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.
Comprehensive coverage pays for claims like damage from a tornado or hurricane, hitting a bird and damage from getting keyed. The highest amount your auto insurance company will pay is the market value of your vehicle, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value consider removing comprehensive coverage.
