If it’s difficult to answer those questions then you might want to talk to a licensed insurance agent. To find lower rates from a local agent, fill out this quick form or you can go here for a list of companies in your area. It only takes a few minutes and may give you better protection.
Having a good grasp of your policy can be of help when determining the best coverages for your vehicles. The terms used in a policy can be confusing and nobody wants to actually read their policy. Listed below are typical coverage types offered by car insurance companies.
Comprehensive (Other than Collision) – This coverage pays for damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You first have to pay a deductible then your comprehensive coverage will pay.
Comprehensive coverage pays for claims like damage from a tornado or hurricane, damage from getting keyed, fire damage, a broken windshield and theft. The maximum payout you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the market value of your vehicle, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value it’s probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.
Liability coverages – Liability insurance protects you from damages or injuries you inflict on a person or their property in an accident. This coverage protects you from claims by other people. It does not cover damage to your own property or vehicle.
It consists of three limits, bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. You might see liability limits of 100/300/100 that translate to a $100,000 limit per person for injuries, a total of $300,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and property damage coverage for $100,000. Some companies may use a combined limit which provides one coverage limit without having the split limit caps.
Liability coverage protects against things such as loss of income, attorney fees, legal defense fees and emergency aid. How much liability should you purchase? That is up to you, but buy as high a limit as you can afford.
Medical expense insurance – Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP reimburse you for bills such as EMT expenses, doctor visits, surgery, pain medications and nursing services. They are often used in conjunction with a health insurance program or if there is no health insurance coverage. They cover not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants and will also cover if you are hit as a while walking down the street. Personal injury protection coverage is not universally available but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage
Protection from uninsured/underinsured drivers – This coverage protects you and your vehicle’s occupants when other motorists do not carry enough liability coverage. This coverage pays for injuries sustained by your vehicle’s occupants and also any damage incurred to your Mercury Sable.
Since many drivers carry very low liability coverage limits, it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages is a good idea. Frequently the UM/UIM limits are set the same as your liablity limits.
Collision coverages – This coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage caused by collision with a stationary object or other vehicle. A deductible applies and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.
Collision insurance covers things like crashing into a ditch, hitting a parking meter and backing into a parked car. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so you might think about dropping it from vehicles that are 8 years or older. Another option is to increase the deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.
