Learning about specific coverages of your policy can be of help when determining the best coverages at the best deductibles and correct limits. Policy terminology can be confusing and even agents have difficulty translating policy wording. Below you’ll find the usual coverages available from insurance companies.
Comprehensive coverage – This pays to fix your vehicle from damage that is not covered by collision coverage. You first have to pay a deductible then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive coverage pays for things such as vandalism, falling objects and a tree branch falling on your vehicle. The most a insurance company will pay at claim time is the market value of your vehicle, so if the vehicle is not worth much it’s probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.
Collision – This coverage pays for damage to your ZDX resulting from a collision with an object or car. You first must pay a deductible and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.
Collision coverage protects against things such as crashing into a ditch, sideswiping another vehicle, colliding with another moving vehicle, colliding with a tree and driving through your garage door. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so consider dropping it from lower value vehicles. Another option is to choose a higher deductible to bring the cost down.
Liability auto insurance – Liability insurance provides protection from injuries or damage you cause to other people or property. It protects YOU from legal claims by others, and doesn’t cover your injuries or vehicle damage.
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. As an example, you may have limits of 25/50/25 which means $25,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, $50,000 for the entire accident, and a total limit of $25,000 for damage to vehicles and property.
Liability coverage pays for things such as legal defense fees, repair costs for stationary objects, medical services and funeral expenses. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is your choice, but you should buy as much as you can afford.
Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage – This protects you and your vehicle’s occupants from other drivers when they either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. It can pay for injuries to you and your family as well as your vehicle’s damage.
Since many drivers have only the minimum liability required by law, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages is very important.
Medical payments coverage and PIP – Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP reimburse you for immediate expenses for things like chiropractic care, nursing services and pain medications. They are often used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance plan or if you do not have health coverage. They cover all vehicle occupants as well as being hit by a car walking across the street. PIP coverage is only offered in select states and may carry a deductible
