Having a good grasp of your policy can help you determine which coverages you need and the correct deductibles and limits. The coverage terms in a policy can be difficult to understand and nobody wants to actually read their policy.
Liability coverages – This coverage can cover damages or injuries you inflict on other’s property or people by causing an accident. This coverage protects you against other people’s claims. Liability doesn’t cover your injuries or vehicle damage.
Split limit liability has three limits of coverage: bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. You might see policy limits of 100/300/100 which means a limit of $100,000 per injured person, a total of $300,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and property damage coverage for $100,000. 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 insurance covers claims such as attorney fees, structural damage, repair costs for stationary objects, repair bills for other people’s vehicles and emergency aid. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is up to you, but you should buy higher limits if possible.
Collision – This coverage covers damage to your TT resulting from a collision with a stationary object or other vehicle. A deductible applies and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.
Collision coverage protects against claims like sideswiping another vehicle, backing into a parked car, rolling your car, scraping a guard rail and hitting a parking meter. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so you might think about dropping it from lower value vehicles. You can also bump up the deductible to save money on collision insurance.
Comprehensive insurance – This coverage covers damage that is not covered by collision coverage. You first must pay your deductible then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive coverage protects against claims such as hitting a bird, damage from a tornado or hurricane, a broken windshield and a tree branch falling on your vehicle. The maximum payout you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the market value of your vehicle, so if it’s not worth much more than your deductible consider dropping full coverage.
Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist (UM/UIM) – Your UM/UIM coverage provides protection when the “other guys” are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. This coverage pays for injuries sustained by your vehicle’s occupants as well as your vehicle’s damage.
Since a lot of drivers only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages should not be overlooked. Usually your uninsured/underinsured motorist coverages do not exceed the liability coverage limits.
Med pay and Personal Injury Protection (PIP) – Med pay and PIP coverage provide coverage for expenses such as X-ray expenses, pain medications, nursing services, rehabilitation expenses and ambulance fees. They are utilized in addition to your health insurance program or if you lack health insurance entirely. They cover not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants as well as if you are hit as a while walking down the street. PIP is not available in all states and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay
