Understanding the coverages of your policy can help you determine which coverages you need for your vehicles. The terms used in a policy can be ambiguous and nobody wants to actually read their policy.
Liability car insurance – This coverage protects you from damage or injury you incur to other’s property or people in an accident. This coverage protects you against other people’s claims. It does not cover damage sustained by your vehicle in an accident.
Coverage consists of three different limits, bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. Your policy might show limits of 100/300/100 that means you have a $100,000 limit per person for injuries, a per accident bodily injury limit of $300,000, and property damage coverage for $100,000. Occasionally you may see one limit called combined single limit (CSL) that pays claims from the same limit rather than limiting it on a per person basis.
Liability can pay for things like structural damage, medical services, funeral expenses, repair bills for other people’s vehicles and emergency aid. How much liability coverage do you need? That is a personal decision, but you should buy as high a limit as you can afford.
Protection from uninsured/underinsured drivers – Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage protects you and your vehicle’s occupants when the “other guys” either have no liability insurance or not enough. This coverage pays for 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. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is very important. Frequently your uninsured/underinsured motorist coverages are set the same as your liablity limits.
Medical expense insurance – Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance pay for immediate expenses such as surgery, hospital visits, prosthetic devices and pain medications. They are often used in conjunction with a health insurance program or if you do not have health coverage. They cover all vehicle occupants and also covers any family member struck as a pedestrian. PIP coverage is not universally available but can be used in place of medical payments coverage
Collision coverage – This pays to fix your vehicle from damage caused by collision with a stationary object or other vehicle. You have to pay a deductible and then insurance will cover the remainder.
Collision insurance covers things such as hitting a mailbox, hitting a parking meter, backing into a parked car, damaging your car on a curb and rolling your car. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so consider dropping it from older vehicles. It’s also possible to choose a higher deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.
Comprehensive (Other than Collision) – This coverage will pay to fix damage that is not covered by collision coverage. A deductible will apply and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive coverage protects against things like rock chips in glass, hitting a deer, damage from a tornado or hurricane, hail damage and damage from flooding. The most you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the cash value of the vehicle, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value it’s probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.
