Knowing the specifics of your car insurance policy helps when choosing the right coverages and proper limits and deductibles. Car insurance terms can be impossible to understand and coverage can change by endorsement. Shown next are the normal coverages available from car insurance companies.
Comprehensive insurance will pay to fix damage caused by mother nature, theft, vandalism and other events. You first have to pay a deductible then your comprehensive coverage will pay.
Comprehensive insurance covers claims such as a tree branch falling on your vehicle, theft and damage from a tornado or hurricane. The maximum payout a car insurance company will pay at claim time is the cash value of the vehicle, so if the vehicle is not worth much it’s probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.
Collision insurance will pay to fix damage to your Grand Marquis from colliding with a stationary object or other vehicle. You will need to pay your deductible and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.
Collision coverage pays for things such as sustaining damage from a pot hole, crashing into a building, driving through your garage door and colliding with another moving vehicle. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so consider dropping it from older vehicles. You can also bump up the deductible to bring the cost down.
Med pay and PIP coverage kick in for immediate expenses for ambulance fees, dental work, EMT expenses, pain medications and surgery. They can be used to fill the gap from your health insurance program or if you lack health insurance entirely. It covers not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants and also covers being hit by a car walking across the street. Personal injury protection coverage is not available in all states and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay
This protects you and your vehicle from other drivers when they are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. Covered losses include injuries to you and your family as well as damage to your 2008 Mercury Grand Marquis.
Due to the fact that many drivers carry very low liability coverage limits, their limits can quickly be used up. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is important protection for you and your family.
Liability coverage protects you from damage that occurs to other’s property or people by causing an accident. It consists of three limits, bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. You might see policy limits of 25/50/25 that means you have $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.
Liability coverage protects against claims such as attorney fees, repair costs for stationary objects, repair bills for other people’s vehicles and structural damage. How much coverage you buy is a decision to put some thought into, but you should buy as high a limit as you can afford.
