Car insurance can be complex

When it comes to choosing adequate coverage, there really is no single plan that fits everyone. Everyone’s needs are different and your policy should reflect that. For instance, these questions can help discover whether or not you would benefit from an agent’s advice.

  • Am I covered by my employer’s commercial auto policy when driving my personal car for business?
  • Can my babysitter drive my car?
  • At what point should I drop full coverage?
  • Is upholstery damage covered by car insurance?
  • Is my state a no-fault state?
  • Should I put collision coverage on all my vehicles?

If it’s difficult to answer those questions but you know they apply to you, you might consider talking to an insurance agent. If you want to speak to an agent in your area, complete this form or go to this page to view a list of companies.

Insurance specifics

Learning about specific coverages of your insurance policy aids in choosing which coverages you need and proper limits and deductibles. The coverage terms in a policy can be confusing and even agents have difficulty translating policy wording. Shown next are the usual coverages available from insurance companies.

Uninsured or underinsured coverage

Your UM/UIM coverage gives you protection when the “other guys” either have no liability insurance or not enough. Covered losses include hospital bills for your injuries and also any damage incurred to your Audi A4.

Since a lot of drivers only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. This is the reason having UM/UIM coverage is very important. Frequently your uninsured/underinsured motorist coverages are identical to your policy’s liability coverage.

Comprehensive protection

This coverage pays for damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You need to pay your deductible first then your comprehensive coverage will pay.

Comprehensive can pay for things like damage from flooding, fire damage, theft and falling objects. The maximum payout your insurance company will pay is the market value of your vehicle, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value consider removing comprehensive coverage.

Collision coverage

This will pay to fix damage to your A4 from colliding with another car or object. You will need to pay your deductible and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.

Collision can pay for claims like crashing into a ditch, damaging your car on a curb, sideswiping another vehicle, hitting a mailbox and hitting a parking meter. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so consider dropping it from lower value vehicles. Drivers also have the option to raise the deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.

Medical expense coverage

Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage kick in for expenses for surgery, rehabilitation expenses, EMT expenses, X-ray expenses and pain medications. They are used to fill the gap from your health insurance policy or if there is no health insurance coverage. They cover all vehicle occupants and also covers getting struck while a pedestrian. PIP is not an option in every state and may carry a deductible

Liability coverages

Liability insurance provides protection from damage or injury you incur to other people or property in an accident. Liability coverage has three limits: bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. You commonly see values of 25/50/25 which means a $25,000 limit per person for injuries, a limit of $50,000 in injury protection per accident, and property damage coverage for $25,000. Alternatively, you may have one limit called combined single limit (CSL) which limits claims to one amount without having the split limit caps.

Liability coverage pays for claims such as court costs, attorney fees, repair bills for other people’s vehicles, medical services and medical expenses. How much liability coverage do you need? That is a decision to put some thought into, but buy higher limits if possible.
