Having a good grasp of car insurance can help you determine the right coverages and proper limits and deductibles. The coverage terms in a policy can be impossible to understand and coverage can change by endorsement.
Liability insurance – This provides protection from damages or injuries you inflict on other people or property that is your fault. This coverage protects you from claims by other people, and doesn’t cover your injuries or vehicle damage.
Split limit liability has three limits of coverage: bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. You might see policy limits of 100/300/100 which means a limit of $100,000 per injured person, a limit of $300,000 in injury protection per accident, and a total limit of $100,000 for damage to vehicles and property.
Liability insurance covers claims such as court costs, pain and suffering, medical expenses and repair bills for other people’s vehicles. How much liability should you purchase? That is your choice, but you should buy higher limits if possible.
Comprehensive auto coverage – This coverage pays for damage caused by mother nature, theft, vandalism and other events. You first have to pay a deductible then your comprehensive coverage will pay.
Comprehensive coverage protects against things like fire damage, damage from getting keyed, rock chips in glass and hail damage. The most you’ll receive from a claim is the market value of your vehicle, so if it’s not worth much more than your deductible it’s not worth carrying full coverage.
Collision coverages – This pays to fix your vehicle from damage resulting from colliding with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. You will need to pay your deductible and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.
Collision coverage protects against things such as crashing into a building, hitting a parking meter, colliding with a tree and crashing into a ditch. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so consider dropping it from vehicles that are 8 years or older. Drivers also have the option to increase the deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.
Medical payments and PIP coverage – Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage kick in for immediate expenses for things like ambulance fees, X-ray expenses, rehabilitation expenses, pain medications and chiropractic care. The coverages can be utilized in addition to your health insurance plan or if you are not covered by health insurance. Coverage applies to all vehicle occupants and also covers getting struck while a pedestrian. Personal injury protection coverage is only offered in select states and may carry a deductible
UM/UIM (Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist) coverage – Your UM/UIM coverage gives you protection when the “other guys” do not carry enough liability coverage. Covered claims include medical payments for you and your occupants and damage to your Cadillac DTS.
Since a lot of drivers only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, their limits can quickly be used up. So UM/UIM coverage should not be overlooked.
