Knowing the specifics of your insurance policy can help you determine which coverages you need and the correct deductibles and limits. The terms used in a policy can be impossible to understand and reading a policy is terribly boring.
Liability insurance – Liability coverage will cover damages or injuries you inflict on a person or their property by causing an accident. This insurance protects YOU against claims from other people, and doesn’t cover your injuries or vehicle damage.
Coverage consists of three different limits, bodily injury for each person injured, bodily injury for the entire accident and a property damage limit. You commonly see policy limits of 100/300/100 which means a $100,000 limit per person for injuries, a per accident bodily injury limit of $300,000, and a total limit of $100,000 for damage to vehicles and property. Occasionally you may see a combined single limit or CSL which combines the three limits into one amount without having the split limit caps.
Liability insurance covers things like medical services, funeral expenses, structural damage and emergency aid. How much liability coverage do you need? That is up to you, but you should buy higher limits if possible.
Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist (UM/UIM) – Your UM/UIM coverage gives you protection from other motorists when they are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. It can pay for medical payments for you and your occupants and damage to your Ford Crown Victoria.
Since a lot of drivers carry very low liability coverage limits, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages is very important. Frequently the UM/UIM limits do not exceed the liability coverage limits.
Comprehensive insurance – Comprehensive insurance coverage pays for damage that is not covered by collision coverage. You first have to pay a deductible and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.
Comprehensive coverage protects against things such as damage from a tornado or hurricane, vandalism, hitting a deer and hitting a bird. The maximum payout you’ll receive from a claim is the market value of your vehicle, so if the vehicle is not worth much it’s probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.
Med pay and Personal Injury Protection (PIP) – Med pay and PIP coverage kick in for immediate expenses such as pain medications, hospital visits, funeral costs, surgery and ambulance fees. They are used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance policy or if there is no health insurance coverage. They cover both the driver and occupants and will also cover if you are hit as a while walking down the street. Personal Injury Protection is only offered in select states and may carry a deductible
Collision coverages – This covers damage to your Crown Victoria caused by collision with another car or object. A deductible applies and then insurance will cover the remainder.
Collision insurance covers things such as sustaining damage from a pot hole, colliding with a tree and sideswiping another vehicle. This coverage can be expensive, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from older vehicles. Drivers also have the option to bump up the deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.
Insureds change insurance companies for any number of reasons including being labeled a high risk driver, policy non-renewal, questionable increases in premium or even policy cancellation. Regardless of your reason, switching insurance companies can be easy and end up saving you some money.
When you buy auto insurance online, don’t be tempted to skimp on critical coverages to save a buck or two. There are a lot of situations where someone dropped physical damage coverage only to discover later that the few dollars in savings costed them thousands. Your goal is to buy enough coverage at the best cost but still have enough coverage for asset protection.
