What insurance coverages do I need?

When choosing adequate coverage, there really is no “perfect” insurance plan. Every situation is different.

For instance, these questions could help you determine whether or not you might need an agent’s assistance.

  • Should I file a claim if it’s only slightly more than my deductible?
  • Is a new car covered when I drive it off the dealer lot?
  • When should I drop full coverage on my 2008 Acura MDX?
  • Should I buy more coverage than the required minimum liability coverage?
  • How do I file an SR-22 for a DUI in my state?
  • Am I covered when driving a rental car?
  • Is upholstery damage covered by car insurance?
  • Is other people’s property covered if stolen from my vehicle?
  • Are all vehicle passengers covered by medical payments coverage?
  • Is my Acura MDX covered if I use it for business?

If you don’t know the answers to these questions but a few of them apply then you might want to talk to a licensed agent. If you don’t have a local agent, take a second and complete this form. It’s fast, free and can help protect your family.

Auto insurance coverage specifics

Understanding the coverages of a auto insurance policy can help you determine the best coverages and the correct deductibles and limits. Auto insurance terms can be ambiguous and reading a policy is terribly boring.

Collision – Collision insurance pays to fix your vehicle from damage resulting from a collision 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 can pay for things like crashing into a ditch, colliding with another moving vehicle, hitting a mailbox and backing into a parked car. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so consider removing coverage from vehicles that are older. It’s also possible to bump up the deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.

Liability coverages – Liability insurance protects you from damage that occurs to other’s property or people in an accident. This insurance protects YOU against claims from other people, and does not provide coverage for damage sustained by your vehicle in an accident.

Split limit liability has three limits of coverage: bodily injury for each person injured, bodily injury for the entire accident and a property damage limit. As an example, you may have values of 25/50/25 that means you have $25,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, a per accident bodily injury limit of $50,000, and a limit of $25,000 paid for damaged property.

Liability insurance covers things like emergency aid, repair costs for stationary objects and bail bonds. How much liability coverage do you need? That is your choice, but you should buy as large an amount as possible.

UM/UIM Coverage – This coverage protects you and your vehicle’s occupants from other drivers when they either have no liability insurance or not enough. This coverage pays for hospital bills for your injuries as well as your vehicle’s damage.

Since many drivers only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage should not be overlooked.

Comprehensive or Other Than Collision – This coverage will pay to fix damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. A deductible will apply and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.

Comprehensive insurance covers things like a broken windshield, hitting a deer, fire damage and hitting a bird. The highest amount you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the ACV or actual cash value, so if it’s not worth much more than your deductible consider removing comprehensive coverage.

Medical costs insurance – Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP provide coverage for short-term medical expenses for things like rehabilitation expenses, nursing services and pain medications. The coverages can be utilized in addition to your health insurance policy or if you are not covered by health insurance. Coverage applies to you and your occupants and also covers any family member struck as a pedestrian. PIP is not available in all states but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage
