  • Do I need replacement cost coverage on my 2017 Jeep Compass?
  • I have health insurance so do I need medical payments coverage?
  • Is rental equipment covered for theft or damage?

Insurance policy specifics

Knowing the specifics of insurance can be of help when determining appropriate coverage and proper limits and deductibles. The terms used in a policy can be ambiguous and nobody wants to actually read their policy.

Coverage for collisions

Collision coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage resulting from colliding with another car or object. You first must pay a deductible then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.

Collision insurance covers claims such as sustaining damage from a pot hole, scraping a guard rail and hitting a mailbox. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from lower value vehicles. You can also increase the deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.

UM/UIM (Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist) coverage

Your UM/UIM coverage provides protection from other drivers when they either have no liability insurance or not enough. It can pay for medical payments for you and your occupants as well as your vehicle’s damage.

Due to the fact that many drivers only carry the minimum required liability limits, it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. So UM/UIM coverage is a good idea. Normally these coverages are set the same as your liablity limits.

Comprehensive auto coverage

This coverage pays for damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. A deductible will apply then your comprehensive coverage will pay.

Comprehensive can pay for claims such as falling objects, rock chips in glass, hitting a deer, damage from a tornado or hurricane and damage from flooding. The maximum payout a insurance company will pay at claim time is the ACV or actual cash value, so if the vehicle is not worth much it’s probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.

Auto liability insurance

Liability insurance can cover damage or injury you incur to other people or property. It protects you from claims by other people, and doesn’t cover damage sustained by your vehicle in an accident.

Liability coverage has three limits: bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. You might see policy limits of 50/100/50 that translate to a limit of $50,000 per injured person, a total of $100,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and a limit of $50,000 paid for damaged property. Alternatively, you may have a combined single limit or CSL which combines the three limits into one amount with no separate limits for injury or property damage.

Liability insurance covers claims like pain and suffering, repair costs for stationary objects, medical services, emergency aid and legal defense fees. How much liability should you purchase? That is your choice, but buy higher limits if possible.

Medical payments and PIP coverage

Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage reimburse you for immediate expenses for things like pain medications, dental work, rehabilitation expenses, nursing services and X-ray expenses. They are used to fill the gap from your health insurance program or if you do not have health coverage. They cover you and your occupants in addition to getting struck while a pedestrian. Personal injury protection coverage is not available in all states and may carry a deductible
