If you have a feel for what influences your rates, this helps enable you to make changes that could help you find cheaper rates. Many things are part of the equation when pricing auto insurance.

Having a good grasp of your policy helps when choosing the best coverages and the correct deductibles and limits. The terms used in a policy can be difficult to understand and coverage can change by endorsement.
Liability car insurance
Liability insurance provides protection from injuries or damage you cause to other people or property. It protects YOU from claims by other people, and does not provide coverage for damage to your own property or vehicle.
It consists of three limits, bodily injury for each person injured, bodily injury for the entire accident and a property damage limit. As an example, you may have policy limits of 100/300/100 that translate to a $100,000 limit per person for injuries, a per accident bodily injury limit of $300,000, and a limit of $100,000 paid for damaged property.
Liability insurance covers things like court costs, loss of income, attorney fees, medical services and medical expenses. How much liability should you purchase? That is up to you, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase as high a limit as you can afford.
This pays to fix your vehicle from damage resulting from a collision with an object or car. You first must pay a deductible then your collision coverage will kick in.
Collision coverage pays for things like sideswiping another vehicle, crashing into a ditch, damaging your car on a curb, rolling your car and sustaining damage from a pot hole. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from vehicles that are 8 years or older. Drivers also have the option to increase the deductible to save money on collision insurance.
Comprehensive insurance coverage pays for damage that is not covered by collision coverage. You need to pay your deductible first and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.
Comprehensive insurance covers things like damage from a tornado or hurricane, a broken windshield, hitting a bird and vandalism. The highest amount a insurance company will pay at claim time is the cash value of the vehicle, so if the vehicle is not worth much consider removing comprehensive coverage.
Uninsured or underinsured coverage
This protects you and your vehicle’s occupants when other motorists are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. This coverage pays for medical payments for you and your occupants and damage to your Acura RDX.
Since many drivers have only the minimum liability required by law, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. So UM/UIM coverage is very important.
Medical expense coverage
Med pay and PIP coverage kick in for short-term medical expenses for things like chiropractic care, surgery, ambulance fees and hospital visits. They are used in conjunction with a health insurance plan or if you do not have health coverage. Medical payments and PIP 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. PIP coverage is not universally available but can be used in place of medical payments coverage
