Comprehensive (Other than Collision)
Comprehensive insurance will pay to fix damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You first must pay your deductible and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive insurance covers claims like a tree branch falling on your vehicle, damage from a tornado or hurricane and theft. The maximum payout you’ll receive from a claim is the market value of your vehicle, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value consider removing comprehensive coverage.
This coverage pays for damage to your LS resulting from colliding with an object or car. You will need to pay your deductible and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.
Collision insurance covers claims such as scraping a guard rail, crashing into a building and driving through your garage door. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so consider removing coverage from vehicles that are 8 years or older. Another option is to bump up the deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.
Medical expense insurance
Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP reimburse you for immediate expenses for hospital visits, prosthetic devices, EMT expenses and X-ray expenses. They are often used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance plan or if you are not covered by health insurance. Coverage applies to all vehicle occupants as well as being hit by a car walking across the street. PIP is only offered in select states but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage
Protection from uninsured/underinsured drivers
This protects you and your vehicle’s occupants when other motorists do not carry enough liability coverage. It can pay for medical payments for you and your occupants and also any damage incurred to your 2005 Lincoln LS.
Since a lot of drivers only carry the minimum required liability limits, their limits can quickly be used up. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is a good idea. Normally these coverages are identical to your policy’s liability coverage.
Liability coverage can cover damage or injury you incur to people or other property. It protects YOU from claims by other people. It does not cover your own vehicle damage or injuries.
Coverage consists of three different limits, bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. You commonly see policy limits of 25/50/25 which stand for $25,000 bodily injury coverage, $50,000 for the entire accident, and property damage coverage for $25,000. Some companies may use one limit called combined single limit (CSL) which combines the three limits into one amount without having the split limit caps.
Liability coverage pays for things like bail bonds, legal defense fees and structural damage. How much liability coverage do you need? That is up to you, but you should buy as high a limit as you can afford.
