Specific coverages for a Toyota Sienna

Knowing the specifics of a car insurance policy helps when choosing the right coverages and the correct deductibles and limits. Car insurance terms can be ambiguous and even agents have difficulty translating policy wording. These are the normal coverages found on the average car insurance policy.

Coverage for medical expenses

Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage pay for expenses for funeral costs, doctor visits, surgery and hospital visits. The coverages can be used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance program or if you lack health insurance entirely. It covers all vehicle occupants in addition to any family member struck as a pedestrian. PIP coverage is not an option in every state but can be used in place of medical payments coverage

Comprehensive car insurance

Comprehensive insurance coverage pays for damage from a wide range of events other than collision. You first have to pay a deductible and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.

Comprehensive coverage pays for claims such as damage from a tornado or hurricane, vandalism, a broken windshield, a tree branch falling on your vehicle and theft. The highest amount a car insurance company will pay at claim time is the ACV or actual cash value, so if the vehicle’s value is low it’s not worth carrying full coverage.

Collision protection

This pays to fix your vehicle from damage caused by collision with another car or object. You have to pay a deductible then your collision coverage will kick in.

Collision coverage protects against things like hitting a parking meter, backing into a parked car, hitting a mailbox and sustaining damage from a pot hole. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from vehicles that are 8 years or older. Drivers also have the option to raise the deductible to save money on collision insurance.

Coverage for uninsured or underinsured drivers

This coverage provides protection from other drivers when they are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. Covered claims include injuries to you and your family and also any damage incurred to your Toyota Sienna.

Since a lot of drivers only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages is very important.


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

Liability coverage has three limits: bodily injury for each person injured, bodily injury for the entire accident and a property damage limit. You might see limits of 50/100/50 that means you have $50,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, a per accident bodily injury limit of $100,000, and a total limit of $50,000 for damage to vehicles and property.

Liability coverage pays for things like court costs, medical services, funeral expenses and bail bonds. How much liability coverage do you need? That is a decision to put some thought into, but buy higher limits if possible.
