Having a good grasp of your insurance policy can be of help when determining the best coverages for your vehicles. Policy terminology can be confusing and coverage can change by endorsement.
This coverage can cover damages or injuries you inflict on other’s property or people by causing an accident. It protects you from legal claims by others, and does not provide coverage for your injuries or vehicle damage.
Liability coverage has three limits: bodily injury for each person injured, bodily injury for the entire accident and a property damage limit. Your policy might show values of 100/300/100 that translate to $100,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, a limit of $300,000 in injury protection per accident, and a limit of $100,000 paid for damaged property. Some companies may use a combined limit which combines the three limits into one amount with no separate limits for injury or property damage.
Liability coverage protects against things like bail bonds, repair costs for stationary objects, emergency aid and legal defense fees. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is a personal decision, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase as high a limit as you can afford.
Comprehensive auto coverage
This pays to fix your vehicle from damage from a wide range of events other than collision. You first must pay your deductible and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive insurance covers things like fire damage, falling objects and a tree branch falling on your vehicle. The highest amount you’ll receive from a claim is the cash value of the vehicle, so if the vehicle’s value is low it’s probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.
Medical payments and PIP coverage
Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP pay for expenses for EMT expenses, dental work, ambulance fees and funeral costs. They are utilized in addition to your health insurance policy or if you do not have health coverage. Medical payments and PIP cover all vehicle occupants in addition to if you are hit as a while walking down the street. PIP is not universally available but can be used in place of medical payments coverage
UM/UIM (Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist) coverage
This coverage provides protection from other drivers when they either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. Covered claims include injuries sustained by your vehicle’s occupants as well as your vehicle’s damage.
Since a lot of drivers only carry the minimum required liability limits, it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. So UM/UIM coverage is important protection for you and your family. Normally these limits do not exceed the liability coverage limits.
This pays for damage to your ES 250 resulting from colliding with an object or car. You first must pay a deductible and then insurance will cover the remainder.
Collision insurance covers things such as sideswiping another vehicle, sustaining damage from a pot hole, crashing into a ditch and backing into a parked car. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so you might think about dropping it from vehicles that are older. It’s also possible to increase the deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.

Insureds leave their current company for a number of reasons such as questionable increases in premium, lack of trust in their agent, unfair underwriting practices or even delays in responding to claim requests.
