Having a good grasp of your policy can help you determine the best coverages and the correct deductibles and limits. Insurance terms can be impossible to understand and coverage can change by endorsement.
Comprehensive insurance – Comprehensive insurance pays to fix your vehicle from damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You first must pay your deductible and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive coverage protects against things such as damage from flooding, vandalism, hail damage and a tree branch falling on your vehicle. The maximum payout a insurance company will pay at claim time 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.
Med pay and Personal Injury Protection (PIP) – Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP reimburse you for immediate expenses for things like rehabilitation expenses, ambulance fees, prosthetic devices, EMT expenses and pain medications. They are often used to fill the gap from your health insurance policy or if you lack health insurance entirely. They cover not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants in addition to any family member struck as a pedestrian. PIP coverage is only offered in select states but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage
Collision coverage – This coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage caused by collision with a stationary object or other vehicle. You will need to pay your deductible and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.
Collision coverage protects against things like driving through your garage door, backing into a parked car, damaging your car on a curb and sustaining damage from a pot hole. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from vehicles that are older. You can also bump up the deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.
Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist (UM/UIM) – Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage protects you and your vehicle’s occupants when other motorists either have no liability insurance or not enough. This coverage pays for medical payments for you and your occupants and damage to your 2003 Cadillac Escalade EXT.
Since many drivers carry very low liability coverage limits, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. So UM/UIM coverage is important protection for you and your family.
Coverage for liability – Liability insurance protects you from damage or injury you incur to other people or property in an accident. It protects YOU from claims by other people. Liability doesn’t cover damage sustained by your vehicle in an accident.
Coverage consists of three different limits, per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. You might see policy limits of 25/50/25 which means a limit of $25,000 per injured person, a limit of $50,000 in injury protection per accident, and a total limit of $25,000 for damage to vehicles and property.
Liability can pay for claims like pain and suffering, loss of income and emergency aid. How much coverage you buy is a decision to put some thought into, but buy as large an amount as possible.
Insureds switch companies for a number of reasons such as high rates after DUI convictions, denial of a claim, policy cancellation and even delays in paying claims. Whatever your reason, choosing a new company can be easy and end up saving you some money.
