  • Who is covered by my policy?
  • When can my company non-renew my policy?
  • Is borrowed equipment or tools covered if stolen or damaged?
  • What happens if I owe more than my 2005 Cadillac CTS-V is worth?
  • What discounts do I qualify for?
  • How high should my uninsured/underinsured coverage be in my state?
  • Am I insured when driving a different vehicle?

If you can’t answer these questions, you might consider talking to a licensed agent. To find an agent in your area, fill out this quick form. It only takes a few minutes and may give you better protection.

Coverages available on your policy

Having a good grasp of your policy can help you determine which coverages you need and proper limits and deductibles. The coverage terms in a policy can be impossible to understand and nobody wants to actually read their policy.

Coverage for liability

This can cover injuries or damage you cause to people or other property by causing an accident. It consists of three limits, per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. You might see values of 100/300/100 which stand for a limit of $100,000 per injured person, $300,000 for the entire accident, and a total limit of $100,000 for damage to vehicles and property. Another option is a combined single limit or CSL that pays claims from the same limit rather than limiting it on a per person basis.

Liability coverage protects against things like pain and suffering, bail bonds, court costs and emergency aid. How much coverage you buy is a decision to put some thought into, but buy as high a limit as you can afford.

Comprehensive coverages

This 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 coverage protects against claims such as damage from flooding, hitting a deer, damage from a tornado or hurricane and a tree branch falling on your vehicle. The most your insurance company will pay is the actual cash value, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value consider dropping full coverage.

Coverage for medical payments

Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP reimburse you for expenses for surgery, prosthetic devices, EMT expenses, funeral costs and ambulance fees. The coverages can be used to fill the gap from your health insurance policy or if there is no health insurance coverage. Coverage applies to both the driver and occupants and will also cover getting struck while a pedestrian. PIP coverage is not universally available but can be used in place of medical payments coverage

Collision coverage

Collision coverage covers damage to your CTS-V resulting from colliding with a stationary object or other vehicle. A deductible applies and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.

Collision coverage pays for claims like crashing into a building, sideswiping another vehicle and scraping a guard rail. This coverage can be expensive, so consider dropping it from vehicles that are 8 years or older. You can also raise the deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.

Uninsured and underinsured coverage

Your UM/UIM coverage protects you and your vehicle when other motorists either have no liability insurance or not enough. It can pay for injuries sustained by your vehicle’s occupants as well as your vehicle’s damage.

Because many people carry very low liability coverage limits, it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is very important. Frequently these coverages are set the same as your liablity limits.
