Understanding the coverages of your policy can be of help when determining appropriate coverage for your vehicles. The coverage terms in a policy can be confusing and reading a policy is terribly boring. Below you’ll find the normal coverages offered by car insurance companies.
Liability car insurance
Liability insurance provides protection from injuries or damage you cause to other’s property or people. It protects YOU from legal claims by others, and does not provide coverage for damage to your own property or vehicle.
Liability coverage has three limits: per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. As an example, you may have policy limits of 25/50/25 that means you have a $25,000 limit per person for injuries, a total of $50,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and a limit of $25,000 paid for damaged property. Another option is a combined limit which provides one coverage limit and claims can be made without the split limit restrictions.
Liability can pay for claims such as medical expenses, medical services and attorney fees. How much liability should you purchase? That is a decision to put some thought into, but buy as much as you can afford.
Collision coverage protection
Collision insurance pays for damage to your Freelander resulting from a collision with an object or car. A deductible applies and then insurance will cover the remainder.
Collision coverage pays for things such as crashing into a ditch, driving through your garage door, hitting a mailbox and colliding with another moving vehicle. This coverage can be expensive, so consider removing coverage from older vehicles. You can also increase the deductible to bring the cost down.
Comprehensive (Other than Collision)
Comprehensive insurance covers damage caused by mother nature, theft, vandalism and other events. You first must pay your deductible then your comprehensive coverage will pay.
Comprehensive coverage protects against things such as vandalism, falling objects and damage from getting keyed. The maximum payout you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the market value of your vehicle, so if the vehicle’s value is low consider dropping full coverage.
Medical expense insurance
Med pay and PIP coverage provide coverage for expenses like doctor visits, rehabilitation expenses and nursing services. They are often used to fill the gap from your health insurance program or if you are not covered by health insurance. Medical payments and PIP cover both the driver and occupants as well as getting struck while a pedestrian. Personal injury protection coverage is only offered in select states and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay
Protection from uninsured/underinsured drivers
This coverage provides protection from other motorists when they do not carry enough liability coverage. Covered claims include injuries to you and your family as well as your vehicle’s damage.
Since a lot of drivers only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is important protection for you and your family. Most of the time these coverages are identical to your policy’s liability coverage.
Cheaper car insurance can be sourced from both online companies and with local insurance agents, and you should compare rates from both to have the best selection. There are still a few companies who don’t offer the ability to get a quote online and most of the time these smaller companies only sell coverage through local independent agents.
When you buy insurance online, make sure you don’t buy less coverage just to save a little money. In many instances, someone sacrificed uninsured motorist or liability limits only to find out that saving that couple of dollars actually costed them tens of thousands. Your objective should be to purchase a proper amount of coverage at the best possible price but still have enough coverage for asset protection.
