UM/UIM Coverage – Your UM/UIM coverage protects you and your vehicle’s occupants from other motorists when they either have no liability insurance or not enough. This coverage pays for hospital bills for your injuries and also any damage incurred to your Audi A5.
Because many people only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages is a good idea.
Liability insurance – This protects you from damage or injury you incur to other’s property or people that is your fault. This insurance protects YOU from claims by other people. It does not cover damage sustained by your vehicle in an accident.
Liability coverage has three limits: bodily injury for each person injured, bodily injury for the entire accident and a property damage limit. Your policy might show liability limits of 100/300/100 that translate to a $100,000 limit per person for injuries, a limit of $300,000 in injury protection per accident, and property damage coverage for $100,000.
Liability coverage protects against things like court costs, medical expenses, attorney fees, structural damage and bail bonds. How much liability should you purchase? That is up to you, but consider buying as much as you can afford.
Medical costs insurance – Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance kick in for bills for nursing services, chiropractic care, prosthetic devices, hospital visits and doctor visits. They are often used to fill the gap from your health insurance policy or if you do not have health coverage. They cover both the driver and occupants in addition to getting struck while a pedestrian. Personal injury protection coverage is only offered in select states but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage
Collision coverage – This coverage will pay to fix damage to your A5 caused by collision with a stationary object or other vehicle. You have to pay a deductible and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.
Collision insurance covers claims like driving through your garage door, hitting a mailbox, crashing into a building and scraping a guard rail. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so consider dropping it from older vehicles. Drivers also have the option to bump up the deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.
Comprehensive or Other Than Collision – Comprehensive insurance coverage will pay to fix damage from a wide range of events other than collision. You need to pay your deductible first then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive coverage protects against claims like a tree branch falling on your vehicle, falling objects and a broken windshield. The maximum payout your insurance company will pay is the cash value of the vehicle, so if it’s not worth much more than your deductible consider removing comprehensive coverage.
