Auto insurance coverages explained

Understanding the coverages of your policy can help you determine the best coverages and proper limits and deductibles. Policy terminology can be ambiguous and even agents have difficulty translating policy wording.

Uninsured and underinsured coverage – Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage provides protection from other motorists when they either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. Covered losses include hospital bills for your injuries and also any damage incurred to your Nissan Frontier.

Since many drivers have only the minimum liability required by law, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. This is the reason having UM/UIM coverage is a good idea.

Comprehensive coverages – This coverage will pay to fix damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You first have to pay a deductible and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.

Comprehensive insurance covers things such as vandalism, theft, damage from flooding, damage from a tornado or hurricane and rock chips in glass. The highest amount you’ll receive from a claim is the actual cash value, so if it’s not worth much more than your deductible consider removing comprehensive coverage.

Coverage for medical payments – Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage pay for bills for hospital visits, ambulance fees, funeral costs and chiropractic care. They are used in conjunction with a health insurance policy or if you are not covered by health insurance. It covers not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants and also covers being hit by a car walking across the street. PIP coverage is not universally available and may carry a deductible

Liability – This provides protection from injuries or damage you cause to other’s property or people by causing an accident. It protects YOU from claims by other people, and doesn’t cover damage to your own property or vehicle.

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 limits of 100/300/100 which stand for a $100,000 limit per person for injuries, $300,000 for the entire accident, and a total limit of $100,000 for damage to vehicles and property.

Liability coverage protects against claims such as court costs, legal defense fees and funeral expenses. How much liability should you purchase? That is your choice, but you should buy as much as you can afford.

Collision coverage – Collision insurance will pay to fix damage to your Frontier caused by collision with an object or car. You first must pay a deductible then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.

Collision coverage pays for claims like sideswiping another vehicle, sustaining damage from a pot hole, hitting a parking meter, rolling your car and hitting a mailbox. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so consider dropping it from older vehicles. You can also bump up the deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.
