If you don’t know the answers to these questions but one or more may apply to you then you might want to talk to a licensed agent. If you don’t have a local agent, simply complete this short form or you can also visit this page to select a carrier
Understanding the coverages of your policy can help you determine the right coverages and proper limits and deductibles. Policy terminology can be difficult to understand and nobody wants to actually read their policy. Listed below are typical coverage types offered by insurance companies.
Comprehensive insurance pays for damage from a wide range of events other than collision. You need to pay your deductible first then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive coverage protects against things such as fire damage, damage from flooding and theft. 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.
Liability coverage protects you from damage that occurs to other’s property or people in an accident. It protects you against other people’s claims. It does not cover your own vehicle damage or injuries.
Split limit liability has three limits of coverage: per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. As an example, you may have values of 100/300/100 which means a $100,000 limit per person for injuries, $300,000 for the entire accident, and a limit of $100,000 paid for damaged property.
Liability coverage protects against claims such as court costs, medical services, pain and suffering, legal defense fees and bail bonds. 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.
Med pay and PIP coverage kick in for short-term medical expenses for funeral costs, prosthetic devices, pain medications and chiropractic care. They are often used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance policy or if there is no health insurance coverage. It covers not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants and will also cover any family member struck as a pedestrian. Personal injury protection coverage is only offered in select states and may carry a deductible
Collision coverage will pay to fix damage to your Explorer Sport Trac from colliding with an object or car. You have to pay a deductible then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.
Collision can pay for claims like hitting a parking meter, driving through your garage door and colliding with a tree. This coverage can be expensive, so consider removing coverage from vehicles that are older. Drivers also have the option to increase the deductible to bring the cost down.
This gives you protection when the “other guys” either have no liability insurance or not enough. Covered claims include hospital bills for your injuries and also any damage incurred to your Ford Explorer Sport Trac.
Since many drivers carry very low liability coverage limits, it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. So UM/UIM coverage is a good idea.
