Learning about specific coverages of your car insurance policy can help you determine the right coverages and proper limits and deductibles. Policy terminology can be ambiguous and even agents have difficulty translating policy wording. Below you’ll find typical coverages found on the average car insurance policy.
Collision coverage covers damage to your Eldorado from colliding with another car or object. A deductible applies then your collision coverage will kick in.
Collision can pay for claims such as sideswiping another vehicle, crashing into a ditch, backing into a parked car and crashing into a building. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so you might think about dropping it from lower value vehicles. Another option is to raise the deductible to bring the cost down.
Comprehensive insurance covers damage that is not covered by collision coverage. You need to pay your deductible first and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive can pay for claims such as hitting a deer, hitting a bird and damage from getting keyed. The highest amount a car insurance company will pay at claim time is the cash value of the vehicle, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value consider removing comprehensive coverage.
Liability coverage protects you from injuries or damage you cause to people or other property that is your fault. It protects YOU against claims from other people. It does not cover your own vehicle damage or injuries.
Liability coverage has three limits: bodily injury for each person injured, bodily injury for the entire accident and a property damage limit. Your policy might show policy limits of 50/100/50 which stand for a limit of $50,000 per injured person, a per accident bodily injury limit of $100,000, and $50,000 of coverage for damaged propery. Occasionally you may see a combined limit which combines the three limits into one amount and claims can be made without the split limit restrictions.
Liability coverage protects against things like pain and suffering, emergency aid and bail bonds. How much coverage you buy is a decision to put some thought into, but consider buying as much as you can afford.
Your UM/UIM coverage protects you and your vehicle when other motorists are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. It can pay for medical payments for you and your occupants as well as damage to your Cadillac Eldorado.
Because many people only carry the minimum required liability limits, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. This is the reason having UM/UIM coverage is a good idea. Normally your uninsured/underinsured motorist coverages do not exceed the liability coverage limits.
Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance reimburse you for short-term medical expenses for things like ambulance fees, funeral costs and hospital visits. The coverages can be used to fill the gap from your health insurance policy or if you are not covered by health insurance. It covers you and your occupants and also covers if you are hit as a while walking down the street. Personal injury protection coverage is not available in all states but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage
