Knowing the specifics of a car insurance policy can help you determine appropriate coverage and the correct deductibles and limits. The terms used in a policy can be ambiguous and even agents have difficulty translating policy wording. Shown next are the normal coverages found on most car insurance policies.
This coverage protects you and your vehicle when other motorists either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. Covered claims include hospital bills for your injuries as well as your vehicle’s damage.
Since a lot of drivers carry very low liability coverage limits, it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages is a good idea. Normally these limits are identical to your policy’s liability coverage.
Collision coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage resulting from a collision with a stationary object or other vehicle. You first must pay a deductible and then insurance will cover the remainder.
Collision coverage pays for claims such as crashing into a building, colliding with another moving vehicle and scraping a guard rail. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so consider dropping it from vehicles that are 8 years or older. Another option is to choose a higher deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.
Comprehensive insurance coverage pays for damage caused by mother nature, theft, vandalism and other events. You first have to pay a deductible then your comprehensive coverage will pay.
Comprehensive can pay for claims such as fire damage, a broken windshield, vandalism, damage from flooding and falling objects. The maximum amount your car insurance company will pay is the ACV or actual cash value, so if the vehicle is not worth much consider dropping full coverage.
Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage provide coverage for immediate expenses for hospital visits, dental work, surgery and X-ray expenses. They can be utilized in addition to your health insurance policy or if you are not covered by health insurance. It covers all vehicle occupants and also covers being hit by a car walking across the street. PIP is not universally available but can be used in place of medical payments coverage
This can cover damages or injuries you inflict on a person or their property in an accident. This insurance protects YOU from claims by other people. Liability doesn’t cover your own vehicle damage or injuries.
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 policy limits of 50/100/50 which means $50,000 bodily injury coverage, a per accident bodily injury limit of $100,000, and a total limit of $50,000 for damage to vehicles and property. Another option is one number which is a combined single limit which provides one coverage limit with no separate limits for injury or property damage.
Liability can pay for things like repair costs for stationary objects, emergency aid and loss of income. How much liability should you purchase? That is a decision to put some thought into, but you should buy as large an amount as possible.
As you prepare to switch companies, it’s not a good idea to buy lower coverage limits just to save a few bucks. There are many occasions where someone dropped full coverage and found out when filing a claim that the few dollars in savings costed them thousands. The aim is to purchase plenty of coverage for the lowest price but still have enough coverage for asset protection.

It’s most important to understand that the more rate quotes you have, the higher your chance of finding cheaper insurance. Consumers may even find the biggest savings come from an unexpected company.
