Understanding the coverages of your auto insurance policy helps when choosing which coverages you need for your vehicles. The coverage terms in a policy can be ambiguous and even agents have difficulty translating policy wording. Listed below are the normal coverages offered by auto insurance companies.
Collision coverage – Collision insurance pays for damage to your 968 caused by collision with a stationary object or other vehicle. You have to pay a deductible and then insurance will cover the remainder.
Collision can pay for claims like sideswiping another vehicle, crashing into a ditch, damaging your car on a curb, backing into a parked car and hitting a mailbox. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so you might think about dropping it from vehicles that are 8 years or older. Another option is to bump up the deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.
Coverage for medical payments – Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance reimburse you for immediate expenses for things like EMT expenses, prosthetic devices and hospital visits. The coverages can be used in conjunction with a health insurance program or if there is no health insurance coverage. They cover all vehicle occupants and also covers if you are hit as a while walking down the street. PIP is not available in all states but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage
Uninsured and underinsured coverage – This coverage provides protection when the “other guys” either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. It can pay for hospital bills for your injuries as well as damage to your 1995 Porsche 968.
Because many people only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. This is the reason having UM/UIM coverage is a good idea. Most of the time the UM/UIM limits do not exceed the liability coverage limits.
Coverage for liability – Liability coverage can cover injuries or damage you cause to people or other property. It protects YOU against other people’s claims, and doesn’t cover damage to your own property or vehicle.
Coverage consists of three different limits, bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. Your policy might show policy limits of 25/50/25 which means $25,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, a per accident bodily injury limit of $50,000, and $25,000 of coverage for damaged propery. Occasionally you may see a combined limit which limits claims to one amount with no separate limits for injury or property damage.
Liability coverage protects against claims such as bail bonds, repair bills for other people’s vehicles, loss of income, court costs and structural damage. How much liability coverage do you need? That is a decision to put some thought into, but consider buying as much as you can afford.
Comprehensive coverages – Comprehensive insurance pays to fix your vehicle from damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. A deductible will apply then your comprehensive coverage will pay.
Comprehensive coverage protects against claims such as a tree branch falling on your vehicle, a broken windshield, fire damage, damage from flooding and hitting a bird. The maximum payout you’ll receive from a claim is the actual cash value, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value it’s not worth carrying full coverage.
