Med pay and Personal Injury Protection (PIP)
Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage kick in for immediate expenses such as surgery, dental work and hospital visits. The coverages can be used in conjunction with a health insurance policy or if you are not covered by health insurance. It covers not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants and will also cover being hit by a car walking across the street. Personal Injury Protection is not an option in every state and may carry a deductible
This covers damage that is not covered by collision coverage. A deductible will apply then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive insurance covers things such as fire damage, damage from flooding, hitting a deer and damage from a tornado or hurricane. The maximum amount you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the ACV or actual cash value, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value it’s probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.
Liability coverage protects you from damages or injuries you inflict on a person or their property in an accident. It protects YOU from claims by other people, and doesn’t cover your injuries or vehicle damage.
Split limit liability has three limits of coverage: bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. Your policy might show 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 total limit of $50,000 for damage to vehicles and property.
Liability coverage pays for things such as structural damage, medical expenses, repair costs for stationary objects, repair bills for other people’s vehicles and legal defense fees. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is a decision to put some thought into, but buy as large an amount as possible.
Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist (UM/UIM)
This provides protection from other motorists when they either have no liability insurance or not enough. It can pay for medical payments for you and your occupants and also any damage incurred to your Saturn S-Series.
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.
Collision coverage protection
This pays for damage to your S-Series from colliding with an object or car. You will need to pay your deductible and then insurance will cover the remainder.
Collision coverage pays for claims such as crashing into a ditch, rolling your car, backing into a parked car, colliding with a tree and colliding with another moving vehicle. This coverage can be expensive, so consider dropping it from vehicles that are 8 years or older. Drivers also have the option to bump up the deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.

While you’re price shopping online, do not skimp on critical coverages to save a buck or two. In many cases, consumers will sacrifice uninsured motorist or liability limits and learned later that a couple dollars of savings turned into a financial nightmare. Your goal is to buy enough coverage at the best possible price.
