Auto insurance coverage basics

Understanding the coverages of auto insurance aids in choosing the best coverages and the correct deductibles and limits. The coverage terms in a policy can be confusing and reading a policy is terribly boring.

Medical payments coverage and PIP – Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP provide coverage for expenses such as surgery, dental work, nursing services, hospital visits and EMT expenses. They are used to fill the gap from your health insurance plan or if you do not have health coverage. They cover 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 only offered in select states and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay

Auto liability – Liability coverage can cover damage or injury you incur to other’s property or people. This insurance protects YOU from claims by other people. It does not 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. You commonly see values 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 a total limit of $50,000 for damage to vehicles and property. Some companies may use a combined limit that pays claims from the same limit without having the split limit caps.

Liability insurance covers things like emergency aid, attorney fees, pain and suffering and repair costs for stationary objects. How much liability coverage do you need? That is a decision to put some thought into, but buy as large an amount as possible.

Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage – This coverage protects you and your vehicle from other drivers when they either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. It can pay for injuries to you and your family as well as your vehicle’s damage.

Since 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 is important protection for you and your family. Frequently the UM/UIM limits do not exceed the liability coverage limits.

Comprehensive coverage – Comprehensive insurance coverage will pay to fix damage from a wide range of events other than collision. You first have to pay a deductible and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.

Comprehensive insurance covers claims like falling objects, a tree branch falling on your vehicle and theft. The highest amount a auto insurance company will pay at claim time is the actual cash value, so if the vehicle is not worth much it’s not worth carrying full coverage.

Collision coverage – Collision insurance covers damage to your M-Class resulting from a collision with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. You first must pay a deductible then your collision coverage will kick in.

Collision can pay for things like scraping a guard rail, damaging your car on a curb, colliding with a tree, sustaining damage from a pot hole and sideswiping another vehicle. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from lower value vehicles. Drivers also have the option to choose a higher deductible to bring the cost down.
