Knowing the specifics of a insurance policy can help you determine the right coverages and the correct deductibles and limits. Insurance terms can be ambiguous and nobody wants to actually read their policy. These are typical coverage types offered by insurance companies.
UM/UIM Coverage – This protects you and your vehicle when the “other guys” either have no liability insurance or not enough. Covered claims include injuries to you and your family as well as your vehicle’s damage.
Due to the fact that many drivers only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, their limits can quickly be used up. So UM/UIM coverage is a good idea.
Medical costs insurance – Med pay and PIP coverage reimburse you for bills for things like dental work, ambulance fees, funeral costs and pain medications. The coverages can be used in conjunction with a health insurance policy or if you do not have health coverage. It covers both the driver and occupants as well as 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 – Collision coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage resulting from a collision with another car or object. You will need to pay your deductible then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.
Collision coverage pays for things such as colliding with another moving vehicle, damaging your car on a curb, colliding with a tree, driving through your garage door and crashing into a building. This coverage can be expensive, so you might think about dropping it from vehicles that are 8 years or older. You can also bump up the deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.
Auto liability – Liability insurance provides protection from damages or injuries you inflict on other’s property or people by causing an accident. This coverage protects you from claims by other people, and doesn’t cover your injuries or vehicle damage.
Split limit liability has three limits of coverage: bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. You commonly see limits of 25/50/25 which stand for $25,000 bodily injury coverage, a total of $50,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and a total limit of $25,000 for damage to vehicles and property.
Liability coverage protects against things such as repair bills for other people’s vehicles, structural damage, medical expenses and attorney fees. How much liability should you purchase? That is up to you, but you should buy higher limits if possible.
Comprehensive or Other Than Collision – Comprehensive insurance coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You first must pay your deductible then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive coverage protects against things such as theft, hail damage, damage from flooding, fire damage and hitting a bird. The highest amount a insurance company will pay at claim time is the actual cash value, so if the vehicle’s value is low consider dropping full coverage.
