Understanding the coverages of insurance aids in choosing which coverages you need and the correct deductibles and limits. Policy terminology can be impossible to understand and coverage can change by endorsement.
Liability auto insurance – Liability coverage protects you from damage that occurs to other’s property or people that is your fault. It consists of 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 in coverage for each person’s injuries, $100,000 for the entire accident, and $50,000 of coverage for damaged propery.
Liability can pay for things like structural damage, court costs, emergency aid and legal defense fees. How much coverage you buy is a personal decision, but consider buying as large an amount as possible.
Uninsured or underinsured coverage – Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage protects you and your vehicle’s occupants from other motorists when they are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. This coverage pays for injuries sustained by your vehicle’s occupants as well as damage to your 2002 Volvo S80.
Because many people carry very low liability coverage limits, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages should not be overlooked.
Collision coverage – Collision insurance pays to fix your vehicle from damage resulting from a collision with another car or object. You first must pay a deductible then your collision coverage will kick in.
Collision coverage pays for things such as crashing into a building, colliding with another moving vehicle and backing into a parked car. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so you might think about dropping it from vehicles that are 8 years or older. Drivers also have the option to raise the deductible to save money on collision insurance.
Comprehensive protection – Comprehensive insurance coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage caused by mother nature, theft, vandalism and other events. You first must pay your deductible and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.
Comprehensive can pay for things like fire damage, vandalism, hail damage and rock chips in glass. The maximum amount a insurance company will pay at claim time is the actual cash value, so if the vehicle’s value is low it’s probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.
Medical expense coverage – Med pay and PIP coverage provide coverage for expenses like pain medications, doctor visits, funeral costs and EMT expenses. The coverages can be utilized in addition to your health insurance policy or if you do not have health coverage. They cover all vehicle occupants in addition to being hit by a car walking across the street. PIP coverage is not available in all states and may carry a deductible
