Knowing the specifics of your policy can help you determine appropriate coverage and the correct deductibles and limits. Policy terminology can be impossible to understand and reading a policy is terribly boring. These are typical coverages available from car insurance companies.
Uninsured or underinsured coverage – This gives you protection when other motorists either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. Covered losses include injuries to you and your family as well as your vehicle’s damage.
Due to the fact that many drivers only carry the minimum required liability limits, it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. So UM/UIM coverage should not be overlooked. Frequently these limits do not exceed the liability coverage limits.
Auto liability – Liability coverage can cover injuries or damage you cause to other’s property or people. This insurance protects YOU against claims from other people. It does not cover 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. Your policy might show policy limits of 25/50/25 which means a limit of $25,000 per injured person, a per accident bodily injury limit of $50,000, and a limit of $25,000 paid for damaged property. Occasionally you may see a combined single limit or CSL which limits claims to one amount with no separate limits for injury or property damage.
Liability can pay for claims like court costs, bail bonds and pain and suffering. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is a decision to put some thought into, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase as much as you can afford.
Collision coverages – This coverage will pay to fix damage to your Silverado 3500 Classic from colliding with a stationary object or other vehicle. A deductible applies then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.
Collision can pay for things like sideswiping another vehicle, crashing into a building, backing into a parked car and scraping a guard rail. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so consider dropping it from lower value vehicles. Drivers also have the option to raise the deductible to save money on collision insurance.
Medical expense coverage – Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance provide coverage for short-term medical expenses for things like funeral costs, EMT expenses, ambulance fees, surgery and nursing services. They are often used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance policy or if there is no health insurance coverage. Coverage applies to not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants as well as any family member struck as a pedestrian. PIP coverage is not universally available and may carry a deductible
Comprehensive protection – Comprehensive insurance coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage that is not covered by collision coverage. You first have to pay a deductible then your comprehensive coverage will pay.
Comprehensive can pay for claims such as theft, hitting a deer, damage from getting keyed and falling objects. The most a car insurance company will pay at claim time is the actual cash value, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value consider dropping full coverage.
