Learning about specific coverages of your auto insurance policy helps when choosing appropriate coverage and the correct deductibles and limits. Auto insurance terms can be confusing and coverage can change by endorsement.
Liability car insurance
Liability coverage can cover injuries or damage you cause to other’s property or people by causing an accident. Coverage consists of three different limits, per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. You commonly see values of 100/300/100 that translate to $100,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, a per accident bodily injury limit of $300,000, and a limit of $100,000 paid for damaged property.
Liability coverage protects against claims such as medical services, legal defense fees, structural damage and bail bonds. How much coverage you buy is your choice, but consider buying as large an amount as possible.
Comprehensive auto coverage
Comprehensive insurance pays for 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 hail damage, damage from a tornado or hurricane, theft, hitting a bird and vandalism. The most your auto insurance company will pay is the actual cash value, so if the vehicle’s value is low consider removing comprehensive coverage.
Collision coverage protection
This coverage pays for damage to your E-150 resulting from colliding with an object or car. A deductible applies then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.
Collision can pay for claims such as crashing into a building, sustaining damage from a pot hole, hitting a mailbox and driving through your garage door. This coverage can be expensive, so consider dropping it from lower value vehicles. Drivers also have the option to bump up the deductible to bring the cost down.
UM/UIM (Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist) coverage
This coverage protects you and your vehicle from other drivers when they do not carry enough liability coverage. This coverage pays for injuries to you and your family and also any damage incurred to your Ford E-150.
Due to the fact that many drivers only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. This is the reason having UM/UIM coverage is a good idea.
Medical payments and PIP coverage
Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance reimburse you for short-term medical expenses like ambulance fees, hospital visits, prosthetic devices and pain medications. The coverages can be utilized in addition to your health insurance policy or if you lack health insurance entirely. Medical payments and PIP cover you and your occupants in addition to any family member struck as a pedestrian. PIP is not an option in every state and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay
As you shop your coverage around, do not sacrifice coverage to reduce premiums. There have been many situations where an insured cut collision coverage only to discover later that it was a big error on their part. Your objective should be to buy enough coverage for the lowest cost, but do not sacrifice coverage to save money.
Drivers switch companies for a variety of reasons including policy cancellation, not issuing a premium refund, delays in paying claims and even an unsatisfactory settlement offer. Regardless of your reason, finding a new insurance coverage company is pretty simple and you could end up saving a buck or two.
