Liability insurance protects you from damage that occurs to people or other property. It protects YOU against other people’s claims. It does not cover 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 values of 25/50/25 which means $25,000 bodily injury coverage, a per accident bodily injury limit of $50,000, and a total limit of $25,000 for damage to vehicles and property. Some companies may use one limit called combined single limit (CSL) which provides one coverage limit without having the split limit caps.
Liability coverage pays for claims such as medical services, repair bills for other people’s vehicles and medical expenses. How much liability coverage do you need? That is a decision to put some thought into, but consider buying higher limits if possible.
Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP pay for expenses such as chiropractic care, doctor visits, ambulance fees and X-ray expenses. They are used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance program or if you are not covered by health insurance. They cover all vehicle occupants as well as getting struck while a pedestrian. PIP coverage is not universally available and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay
Collision insurance pays to fix your vehicle from damage resulting from a collision with an object or car. You first must pay a deductible and then insurance will cover the remainder.
Collision can pay for things like colliding with a tree, hitting a mailbox 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 bring the cost down.
Comprehensive insurance coverage pays for damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You need to pay your deductible first and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive can pay for things such as falling objects, hail damage, fire damage, theft and a broken windshield. The maximum payout you’ll receive from a claim is the actual cash value, so if it’s not worth much more than your deductible it’s probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.
This coverage gives you protection when the “other guys” either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. Covered losses include injuries sustained by your vehicle’s occupants as well as damage to your 2008 Lexus IS F.
Since many drivers carry very low liability coverage limits, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages should not be overlooked. Most of the time the UM/UIM limits do not exceed the liability coverage limits.
