Auto insurance 101

Having a good grasp of your auto insurance policy helps when choosing the right coverages at the best deductibles and correct limits. The terms used in a policy can be ambiguous and reading a policy is terribly boring. Shown next are the usual coverages offered by auto insurance companies.

Comprehensive coverages

Comprehensive insurance coverage covers damage from a wide range of events other than collision. You first must pay your deductible then your comprehensive coverage will pay.

Comprehensive insurance covers claims such as a tree branch falling on your vehicle, falling objects and damage from a tornado or hurricane. The maximum payout you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the cash value of the vehicle, so if the vehicle is not worth much consider dropping full coverage.

Coverage for collisions

Collision coverage will pay to fix damage to your L300 caused by collision with another car or object. You first must pay a deductible and then insurance will cover the remainder.

Collision insurance covers claims such as hitting a mailbox, backing into a parked car and sustaining damage from a pot hole. This coverage can be expensive, so consider removing coverage from vehicles that are older. It’s also possible to increase the deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.

Coverage for medical payments

Med pay and PIP coverage pay for expenses for doctor visits, X-ray expenses and dental work. They can be used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance plan or if you do not have health coverage. Coverage applies to both the driver and occupants as well as any family member struck as a pedestrian. PIP is not an option in every state and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay

Uninsured and underinsured coverage

This coverage provides protection when other motorists either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. Covered losses include injuries to you and your family and damage to your Saturn L300.

Because many people carry very low liability coverage limits, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages is a good idea.

Auto liability insurance

This protects you from injuries or damage you cause to other people or property that is your fault. This coverage protects you from legal claims by others. Liability doesn’t cover damage sustained by your vehicle in an accident.

It consists of three limits, bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. Your policy might show limits of 25/50/25 which means $25,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, a total of $50,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and property damage coverage for $25,000.

Liability coverage pays for claims such as medical expenses, funeral expenses, repair bills for other people’s vehicles and legal defense fees. How much liability coverage do you need? That is a decision to put some thought into, but consider buying as much as you can afford.
