You may need specialized auto insurance coverage

When it comes to choosing adequate coverage, there isn’t really a perfect coverage plan. Everyone’s needs are different.

For instance, these questions can aid in determining whether your personal situation would benefit from professional advice.

  • What is high-risk coverage and where do I buy it?
  • How high should deductibles be on a 2011 Audi A4?
  • Am I covered when driving on a suspended license?
  • Will my rates increase for filing one claim?
  • Does coverage extend to my business vehicle?
  • If my pet gets injured in an accident are they covered?
  • I don’t drive much so do I pay less?

If it’s difficult to answer those questions, you may need to chat with an insurance agent. To find lower rates from a local agent, take a second and complete this form. It’s fast, free and can provide invaluable advice.

Learn about insurance coverages for a 2011 Audi A4

Learning about specific coverages of your policy can help you determine the right coverages and the correct deductibles and limits. The terms used in a policy can be difficult to understand and even agents have difficulty translating policy wording.

Uninsured or underinsured coverage

Your UM/UIM coverage protects you and your vehicle’s occupants when other motorists either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. This coverage pays for hospital bills for your injuries and damage to your 2011 Audi A4.

Since a lot of drivers only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. So UM/UIM coverage is a good idea. Usually these limits do not exceed the liability coverage limits.

Liability

Liability coverage protects you from damage that occurs to other’s property or people. This coverage protects you against claims from other people. It does not cover damage to your own property or vehicle.

It consists of three limits, bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. As an example, you may have limits of 100/300/100 that translate to $100,000 bodily injury coverage, $300,000 for the entire accident, and a total limit of $100,000 for damage to vehicles and property. Another option is a combined limit that pays claims from the same limit with no separate limits for injury or property damage.

Liability insurance covers things like court costs, repair bills for other people’s vehicles and repair costs for stationary objects. How much coverage you buy is a decision to put some thought into, but consider buying as much as you can afford.

Medical expense coverage

Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage kick in for bills for things like chiropractic care, dental work, surgery, EMT expenses and rehabilitation expenses. The coverages can be utilized in addition to your health insurance policy or if there is no health insurance coverage. Medical payments and PIP cover not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants and also covers getting struck while a pedestrian. PIP is not available in all states and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay

Coverage for collisions

This covers damage to your A4 caused by collision with an object or car. You have to pay a deductible and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.

Collision insurance covers claims such as hitting a parking meter, colliding with a tree, scraping a guard rail and hitting a mailbox. This coverage can be expensive, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from lower value vehicles. Drivers also have the option to bump up the deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.

Comprehensive protection

Comprehensive insurance coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You first have to pay a deductible then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage.

Comprehensive insurance covers things like a tree branch falling on your vehicle, a broken windshield and damage from getting keyed. The highest amount you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the ACV or actual cash value, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value it’s probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.
