Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist (UM/UIM)

Since a lot of drivers only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. So UM/UIM coverage is very important. Most of the time your uninsured/underinsured motorist coverages do not exceed the liability coverage limits.
Med pay and Personal Injury Protection (PIP)
Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage reimburse you for expenses for things like prosthetic devices, EMT expenses, doctor visits, ambulance fees and funeral costs. They are often utilized in addition to your health insurance policy or if you are not covered by health insurance.

This coverage pays for damage to your Crown Victoria resulting from a collision with another car or object. You first must pay a deductible then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.
Collision insurance covers things such as backing into a parked car, colliding with a tree and crashing into a building. This coverage can be expensive, so consider dropping it from lower value vehicles. It’s also possible to raise the deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.
Auto liability insurance
This protects you from injuries or damage you cause to other’s property or people by causing an accident. 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. Your policy might show limits of 100/300/100 that means you have a $100,000 limit per person for injuries, a limit of $300,000 in injury protection per accident, and $100,000 of coverage for damaged propery. 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 can pay for things such as legal defense fees, medical services, repair bills for other people’s vehicles, bail bonds and funeral expenses. How much coverage you buy is up to you, but consider buying higher limits if possible.
Comprehensive insurance covers damage from a wide range of events other than collision. A deductible will apply then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive insurance covers things such as falling objects, hitting a bird, hitting a deer and a tree branch falling on your vehicle. The most you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the market value of your vehicle, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value it’s probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.
