Insurance coverage options for a 2012 Scion tC

Understanding the coverages of your insurance policy aids in choosing the best coverages for your vehicles. Insurance terms can be impossible to understand and nobody wants to actually read their policy. These are typical coverages offered by insurance companies.

Collision coverage protection

Collision insurance pays to fix your vehicle from damage resulting from a 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 such as rolling your car, crashing into a building, hitting a mailbox and colliding with another moving vehicle. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so consider removing coverage from lower value vehicles. It’s also possible to choose a higher deductible to bring the cost down.

Medical payments and PIP coverage

Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage pay for immediate expenses like dental work, EMT expenses, ambulance fees, hospital visits and prosthetic devices. They can be utilized in addition to your health insurance policy or if you are not covered by health insurance. They cover not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants as well as being hit by a car walking across the street. Personal injury protection coverage is not universally available but can be used in place of medical payments coverage

UM/UIM (Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist) coverage

Your UM/UIM coverage protects you and your vehicle from other drivers when they do not carry enough liability coverage. Covered losses include medical payments for you and your occupants as well as damage to your Scion tC.

Since many drivers have only the minimum liability required by law, it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. So UM/UIM coverage is important protection for you and your family. Usually these limits do not exceed the liability coverage limits.

Coverage for liability

This coverage protects you from damages or injuries you inflict on other people or property that is your fault. This coverage protects you against claims from other people. Liability doesn’t cover damage sustained by your vehicle in an accident.

Split limit liability has three limits of coverage: bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. You might see policy limits of 100/300/100 that translate to a limit of $100,000 per injured person, a per accident bodily injury limit of $300,000, and property damage coverage for $100,000. Some companies may use one number which is a combined single limit which provides one coverage limit with no separate limits for injury or property damage.

Liability coverage pays for things like bail bonds, pain and suffering, court costs, emergency aid and repair costs for stationary objects. How much liability should you purchase? That is your choice, but consider buying as large an amount as possible.

Comprehensive auto coverage

Comprehensive insurance pays for damage caused by mother nature, theft, vandalism and other events. You first have to pay a deductible and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.

Comprehensive coverage protects against claims such as vandalism, damage from a tornado or hurricane and damage from flooding. The maximum amount a insurance company will pay at claim time is the cash value of the vehicle, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value it’s not worth carrying full coverage.
