Learning about specific coverages of your auto insurance policy can help you determine the right coverages and proper limits and deductibles. Policy terminology can be confusing and coverage can change by endorsement. Shown next are typical coverage types offered by auto insurance companies.
Medical expense insurance – Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage provide coverage for bills for things like doctor visits, chiropractic care, pain medications and hospital visits. They are often used in conjunction with a health insurance program or if you lack health insurance entirely. Medical payments and PIP cover you and your occupants and also covers if you are hit as a while walking down the street. PIP is not universally available but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage
Protection from uninsured/underinsured drivers – This protects you and your vehicle’s occupants when the “other guys” do not carry enough liability coverage. It can pay for injuries to you and your family 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. This is the reason having UM/UIM coverage is important protection for you and your family.
Comprehensive (Other than Collision) – This will pay to fix damage that is not covered by collision coverage. You first must pay your deductible then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive can pay for things such as hail damage, vandalism, theft and a broken windshield. The most you’ll receive from a claim is the actual cash value, so if it’s not worth much more than your deductible consider dropping full coverage.
Collision coverage – Collision insurance pays for damage to your Hardtop caused by collision with an object or car. A deductible applies then your collision coverage will kick in.
Collision can pay for things such as damaging your car on a curb, sustaining damage from a pot hole, hitting a parking meter and crashing into a building. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so consider dropping it from lower value vehicles. Another option is to increase the deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.
Coverage for liability – Liability insurance protects you from injuries or damage you cause to people or other property by causing an accident. This coverage protects you against other people’s claims, and doesn’t cover damage to your own property or vehicle.
Liability coverage has three limits: bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. As an example, you may have policy limits of 50/100/50 which stand for a $50,000 limit per person for injuries, $100,000 for the entire accident, and a total limit of $50,000 for damage to vehicles and property.
Liability coverage protects against things such as repair costs for stationary objects, medical expenses, medical services and structural damage. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is up to you, but you should buy as large an amount as possible.
