Understanding the coverages of your policy helps when choosing the best coverages and proper limits and deductibles. The coverage terms in a policy can be impossible to understand and even agents have difficulty translating policy wording.
Protection from uninsured/underinsured drivers
This provides protection when the “other guys” either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. Covered claims include hospital bills for your injuries as well as your vehicle’s damage.
Since many drivers have only the minimum liability required by law, their limits can quickly be used up. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages is a good idea.
This pays to fix your vehicle from damage resulting from colliding with a stationary object or other vehicle. You will need to pay your deductible then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.
Collision coverage protects against claims such as backing into a parked car, crashing into a building and colliding with a tree. This coverage can be expensive, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from vehicles that are older. Another option is to bump up the deductible to save money on collision insurance.
Liability auto insurance
This coverage will cover damage or injury you incur to a person or their property that is your fault. It protects you against other people’s claims, and does not provide coverage for damage sustained by your vehicle in an accident.
Liability coverage has three limits: bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. You commonly see policy limits of 25/50/25 which means a limit of $25,000 per injured person, a limit of $50,000 in injury protection per accident, and property damage coverage for $25,000.
Liability coverage protects against things like medical services, court costs and repair bills for other people’s vehicles. How much coverage you buy is a personal decision, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase as much as you can afford.
Comprehensive (Other than Collision)
Comprehensive insurance coverage covers damage from a wide range of events other than collision. You first must pay your deductible then your comprehensive coverage will pay.
Comprehensive insurance covers things such as falling objects, damage from a tornado or hurricane, a broken windshield, vandalism and rock chips in glass. The maximum payout a auto insurance company will pay at claim time is the actual cash value, so if it’s not worth much more than your deductible consider removing comprehensive coverage.
Medical expense insurance
Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP provide coverage for immediate expenses for doctor visits, X-ray expenses, prosthetic devices and ambulance fees. They are often used to fill the gap from your health insurance policy or if you are not covered by health insurance. Medical payments and PIP cover not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants and will also cover being hit by a car walking across the street. Personal Injury Protection is not an option in every state and may carry a deductible
