Comprehensive insurance pays to fix your vehicle from damage from a wide range of events other than collision. You need to pay your deductible first then your comprehensive coverage will pay.
Comprehensive can pay for things such as damage from a tornado or hurricane, a tree branch falling on your vehicle, damage from flooding and rock chips in glass. The maximum payout you’ll receive from a claim is the market value of your vehicle, so if the vehicle’s value is low it’s not worth carrying full coverage.
Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist (UM/UIM)
Your UM/UIM coverage gives you protection when other motorists either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. Covered claims include injuries to you and your family and also any damage incurred to your Bentley Continental GT.
Since a lot of drivers have only the minimum liability required by law, it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. So UM/UIM coverage is very important. Most of the time the UM/UIM limits are identical to your policy’s liability coverage.
Collision coverage protection
This covers damage to your Continental GT caused by collision with an object or car. You will need to pay your deductible then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.
Collision coverage pays for claims such as driving through your garage door, hitting a parking meter, sideswiping another vehicle and hitting a mailbox. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so consider dropping it from lower value vehicles. Drivers also have the option to bump up the deductible to bring the cost down.
Coverage for liability
This coverage will cover damage that occurs to a person or their property. It protects you against claims from other people. It does not cover damage sustained by your vehicle in an accident.
Coverage consists of three different limits, bodily injury for each person injured, bodily injury for the entire accident and a property damage limit. As an example, you may have values of 100/300/100 which stand for $100,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, a per accident bodily injury limit of $300,000, and a limit of $100,000 paid for damaged property. Occasionally you may see one limit called combined single limit (CSL) which combines the three limits into one amount without having the split limit caps.
Liability coverage pays for things such as pain and suffering, bail bonds, loss of income and medical expenses. How much coverage you buy is a personal decision, but buy as large an amount as possible.
Med pay and Personal Injury Protection (PIP)
Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP pay for expenses such as pain medications, surgery, ambulance fees, X-ray expenses and doctor visits. They can be used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance policy or if you are not covered by health insurance. Coverage applies to all vehicle occupants in addition to any family member struck as a pedestrian. Personal injury protection coverage is not available in all states but can be used in place of medical payments coverage
Lower-priced insurance can be found from both online companies as well as from independent agents, so you need to quote auto insurance with both in order to have the best price selection to choose from.
