When buying proper insurance coverage, there is no “perfect” insurance plan. Your needs are not the same as everyone else’s and a cookie cutter policy won’t apply. Here are some questions about coverages that could help you determine whether your personal situation would benefit from an agent’s advice.
If you don’t know the answers to these questions but a few of them apply, you might consider talking to a licensed insurance agent. If you don’t have a local agent, complete this form or you can go here for a list of companies in your area. It’s fast, free and can provide invaluable advice.
Knowing the specifics of your policy aids in choosing the right coverages and the correct deductibles and limits. The terms used in a policy can be confusing and even agents have difficulty translating policy wording. These are the normal coverages offered by auto insurance companies.
This coverage can cover damage that occurs to a person or their property by causing an accident. It protects you from claims by other people, and does not provide coverage for your injuries or vehicle damage.
Coverage consists of three different limits, bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. You might see liability limits of 50/100/50 which means a $50,000 limit per person for injuries, a per accident bodily injury limit of $100,000, and $50,000 of coverage for damaged propery.
Liability insurance covers things such as attorney fees, medical expenses, repair bills for other people’s vehicles and bail bonds. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is a decision to put some thought into, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase higher limits if possible.
This coverage covers damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You first must pay your deductible then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive can pay for things such as falling objects, damage from flooding, rock chips in glass and hitting a deer. The maximum amount you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the ACV or actual cash value, so if the vehicle is not worth much it’s probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.
Collision coverage pays for damage to your Sonata resulting from a collision with an object or car. You have to pay a deductible and then insurance will cover the remainder.
Collision coverage protects against things like colliding with another moving vehicle, colliding with a tree and hitting a mailbox. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so consider dropping it from vehicles that are 8 years or older. Drivers also have the option to choose a higher deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.
This coverage provides protection when the “other guys” are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. It can pay for injuries sustained by your vehicle’s occupants as well as damage to your 2018 Hyundai Sonata.
Since many drivers only carry the minimum required liability limits, it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. This is the reason having UM/UIM coverage is very important.
Med pay and PIP coverage provide coverage for expenses for pain medications, EMT expenses, surgery and ambulance fees. They can be used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance policy or if you are not covered by health insurance. They cover both the driver and occupants as well as being hit by a car walking across the street. PIP is not universally available and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay
