Learning about specific coverages of your car insurance policy can be of help when determining appropriate coverage for your vehicles. The terms used in a policy can be difficult to understand and reading a policy is terribly boring. Below you’ll find typical coverages available from car insurance companies.
This coverage pays for damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You first have to pay a deductible then your comprehensive coverage will pay.
Comprehensive insurance covers claims such as rock chips in glass, fire damage, vandalism, falling objects and damage from flooding. The maximum amount a car insurance company will pay at claim time is the ACV or actual cash value, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value consider dropping full coverage.
Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance kick in for short-term medical expenses for things like prosthetic devices, EMT expenses, funeral costs and hospital visits. They can be used in conjunction with a health insurance policy or if you do not have health coverage. It covers both the driver and occupants in addition to being hit by a car walking across the street. PIP coverage is not an option in every state but can be used in place of medical payments coverage
This coverage covers damage to your S-10 resulting from colliding with a stationary object or other vehicle. You will need to pay your deductible and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.
Collision coverage pays for things like driving through your garage door, sideswiping another vehicle, colliding with a tree, crashing into a building and sustaining damage from a pot hole. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so consider dropping it from vehicles that are 8 years or older. It’s also possible to raise the deductible to bring the cost down.
Liability coverage provides protection from damage that occurs to a person or their property that is your fault. This insurance protects YOU from legal claims by others, and doesn’t cover your own vehicle damage or injuries.
It consists of three limits, bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. You commonly see liability limits of 100/300/100 that translate to a $100,000 limit per person for injuries, a total of $300,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and property damage coverage for $100,000. Another option is a combined limit which provides one coverage limit with no separate limits for injury or property damage.
Liability coverage protects against claims such as repair costs for stationary objects, legal defense fees, loss of income and emergency aid. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is a decision to put some thought into, but buy higher limits if possible.
This protects you and your vehicle’s occupants when the “other guys” are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. This coverage pays for injuries to you and your family and damage to your Chevy S-10.
Since many drivers carry very low liability coverage limits, it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. So UM/UIM coverage should not be overlooked. Most of the time these limits are set the same as your liablity limits.
