Specific coverage details

Learning about specific coverages of your insurance policy helps when choosing appropriate coverage for your vehicles. The terms used in a policy can be impossible to understand and even agents have difficulty translating policy wording. Shown next are typical coverages available from insurance companies.

Insurance for medical payments

Med pay and PIP coverage kick in for expenses for rehabilitation expenses, pain medications, nursing services, X-ray expenses and doctor visits. They are often utilized in addition to your health insurance program or if you do not have health coverage. Medical payments and PIP cover you and your occupants as well as getting struck while a pedestrian. Personal injury protection coverage is not universally available and may carry a deductible

Collision coverage

This coverage will pay to fix damage to your Caliber caused by collision with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. You first must pay a deductible then your collision coverage will kick in.

Collision insurance covers claims such as crashing into a building, hitting a mailbox, sideswiping another vehicle and driving through your garage door. This coverage can be expensive, so consider dropping it from older vehicles. Drivers also have the option to choose a higher deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.

Coverage for liability

Liability coverage protects you from injuries or damage you cause to people or other property by causing an accident. This coverage protects you from claims by other people, and doesn’t cover damage sustained by your vehicle in an accident.

Coverage consists of three different limits, per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. Your policy might show policy limits of 100/300/100 that means you have $100,000 bodily injury coverage, a limit of $300,000 in injury protection per accident, and property damage coverage for $100,000.

Liability coverage protects against claims such as attorney fees, medical expenses, loss of income and repair costs for stationary objects. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is your choice, but buy as large an amount as possible.

Uninsured Motorist or Underinsured Motorist insurance

This protects you and your vehicle from other motorists when they do not carry enough liability coverage. Covered losses include injuries sustained by your vehicle’s occupants as well as your vehicle’s damage.

Since many drivers carry very low liability coverage limits, it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages is a good idea.

Comprehensive coverage (or Other than Collision)

Comprehensive insurance covers damage from a wide range of events other than collision. You first must pay your deductible then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage.

Comprehensive can pay for claims such as a tree branch falling on your vehicle, rock chips in glass and damage from getting keyed. The highest amount your insurance company will pay is the cash value of the vehicle, so if it’s not worth much more than your deductible it’s not worth carrying full coverage.
