Tailor your insurance coverage to you

  • Do I need PIP (personal injury protection) coverage in my state?
  • Does having multiple vehicles earn me a discount?
  • Is my babysitter covered when using my vehicle?
  • When can I cancel my policy?
  • When can my company non-renew my policy?
  • Do I have coverage when making deliveries for my home business?
  • I don’t drive much so do I pay less?

If it’s difficult to answer those questions, you might consider talking to an insurance agent. If you want to speak to an agent in your area, complete this form or go to this page to view a list of companies.

Auto insurance 101

Learning about specific coverages of a car insurance policy can be of help when determining the best coverages and the correct deductibles and limits. Policy terminology can be difficult to understand and reading a policy is terribly boring. Below you’ll find the usual coverages found on the average car insurance policy.

Comprehensive coverage (or Other than Collision) – This pays for damage from a wide range of events other than collision. You first must pay your deductible then your comprehensive coverage will pay.

Comprehensive can pay for things like theft, a broken windshield and hitting a deer. The most you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the actual cash value, so if it’s not worth much more than your deductible it’s probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.

Collision – Collision insurance pays to fix your vehicle from damage caused by collision with an object or car. You first must pay a deductible then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.

Collision coverage pays for things like colliding with a tree, hitting a parking meter and backing into a parked car. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so consider removing coverage from vehicles that are older. It’s also possible to bump up the deductible to save money on collision insurance.

Coverage for liability – Liability insurance provides protection from damages or injuries you inflict on a person or their property. This coverage protects you against other people’s claims. Liability doesn’t cover your own vehicle damage or injuries.

Split limit liability has three limits of coverage: per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. As an example, you may have liability limits of 25/50/25 that means you have $25,000 bodily injury coverage, a limit of $50,000 in injury protection per accident, and a total limit of $25,000 for damage to vehicles and property.

Liability coverage protects against claims such as loss of income, structural damage, pain and suffering and repair costs for stationary objects. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is your choice, but you should buy higher limits if possible.

Insurance for medical payments – Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance kick in for bills like funeral costs, hospital visits and ambulance fees. They can be used in conjunction with a health insurance policy or if there is no health insurance coverage. They cover both the driver and occupants as well as getting struck while a pedestrian. PIP coverage is not universally available but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage

Uninsured Motorist or Underinsured Motorist insurance – This provides protection when the “other guys” either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. It can pay for hospital bills for your injuries and damage to your Volkswagen Rabbit.

Since a lot of drivers only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. This is the reason having UM/UIM coverage is important protection for you and your family.
