Liability car insurance
Liability coverage protects you from injuries or damage you cause to other’s property or people. It protects you against other people’s claims. It does not cover your injuries or vehicle damage.
Coverage consists of three different limits, per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. As an example, you may have liability limits of 50/100/50 which means a $50,000 limit per person for injuries, a total of $100,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and property damage coverage for $50,000. Another option is a combined single limit or CSL which limits claims to one amount without having the split limit caps.
Liability can pay for claims like emergency aid, legal defense fees, loss of income, medical expenses and medical services. How much liability coverage do you need? That is a personal decision, but consider buying as high a limit as you can afford.
Comprehensive (Other than Collision)
This pays to fix your vehicle from damage that is not covered by collision coverage. You first must pay your deductible and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive insurance covers claims like vandalism, damage from getting keyed, damage from a tornado or hurricane, fire damage and theft. The most your car insurance company will pay is the cash value of the vehicle, so if the vehicle is not worth much consider removing comprehensive coverage.
Protection from uninsured/underinsured drivers
Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage protects you and your vehicle’s occupants from other motorists when they do not carry enough liability coverage. This coverage pays for hospital bills for your injuries as well as your vehicle’s damage.
Due to the fact that many drivers only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, their limits can quickly be used up. This is the reason having UM/UIM coverage should not be overlooked. Frequently the UM/UIM limits are similar to your liability insurance amounts.
Medical expense insurance
Med pay and PIP coverage provide coverage for expenses for hospital visits, ambulance fees, rehabilitation expenses, funeral costs and prosthetic devices. They are often used to fill the gap from your health insurance program or if you are not covered by health insurance. It covers you and your occupants and will also cover any family member struck as a pedestrian. PIP is not available in all states but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage
This pays for damage to your Windstar from colliding with an object or car. You have to pay a deductible then your collision coverage will kick in.
Collision coverage protects against claims such as hitting a parking meter, sideswiping another vehicle and crashing into a building. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so consider dropping it from older vehicles. You can also increase the deductible to save money on collision insurance.
