Knowing the specifics of insurance helps when choosing which coverages you need and the correct deductibles and limits. The coverage terms in a policy can be difficult to understand and even agents have difficulty translating policy wording. Listed below are the normal coverages found on most insurance policies.
Liability insurance – This protects you from injuries or damage you cause to a person or their property. This coverage protects you against other people’s claims, and doesn’t cover damage sustained by your vehicle in an accident.
Split limit liability has three limits of coverage: per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. You commonly see liability limits of 50/100/50 which means $50,000 bodily injury coverage, a total of $100,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and $50,000 of coverage for damaged propery.
Liability coverage pays for things such as pain and suffering, medical services and structural damage. How much liability coverage do you need? That is your choice, but buy as much as you can afford.
Med pay and Personal Injury Protection (PIP) – Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage kick in for bills like funeral costs, chiropractic care and surgery. They are often utilized in addition to your health insurance program or if you lack health insurance entirely. Coverage applies to all vehicle occupants and also covers if you are hit as a while walking down the street. Personal injury protection coverage is only offered in select states but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage
Collision coverages – This coverage will pay to fix damage to your Raider from colliding with an object or car. You have to pay a deductible then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.
Collision coverage protects against things like crashing into a ditch, hitting a mailbox, crashing into a building and colliding with another moving vehicle. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so consider dropping it from vehicles that are 8 years or older. Another option is to increase the deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.
Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist (UM/UIM) – Your UM/UIM coverage provides protection when the “other guys” do not carry enough liability coverage. It can pay for medical payments for you and your occupants as well as damage to your 2007 Mitsubishi Raider.
Since a lot of drivers carry very low liability coverage limits, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is very important.
Comprehensive insurance – This will pay to fix damage caused by mother nature, theft, vandalism and other events. You first have to pay a deductible and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.
Comprehensive insurance covers claims like falling objects, rock chips in glass, a broken windshield and hitting a bird. The highest amount a insurance company will pay at claim time is the market value of your vehicle, so if it’s not worth much more than your deductible consider removing comprehensive coverage.
