Auto insurance policy specifics

Having a good grasp of auto insurance aids in choosing the best coverages for your vehicles. Policy terminology can be ambiguous and even agents have difficulty translating policy wording.

Comprehensive insurance

Comprehensive insurance coverage pays for damage from a wide range of events other than collision. You first must pay your deductible and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.

Comprehensive insurance covers claims such as hail damage, a broken windshield, hitting a deer and hitting a bird. The maximum amount a auto insurance company will pay at claim time is the market value of your vehicle, so if the vehicle’s value is low it’s not worth carrying full coverage.

Med pay and Personal Injury Protection (PIP)

Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage reimburse you for short-term medical expenses such as chiropractic care, doctor visits and ambulance fees. They are used in conjunction with a health insurance policy or if you lack health insurance entirely. It covers not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants as well as if you are hit as a while walking down the street. Personal injury protection coverage is not available in all states and may carry a deductible

Auto liability

Liability insurance can cover injuries or damage you cause to other’s property or people. It protects YOU from claims by other people, and doesn’t cover damage sustained by your vehicle in an accident.

Split limit liability has three limits of coverage: bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. As an example, you may have liability limits of 100/300/100 that translate to a $100,000 limit per person for injuries, a total of $300,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and property damage coverage for $100,000. Some companies may use a combined single limit or CSL which provides one coverage limit and claims can be made without the split limit restrictions.

Liability coverage protects against claims like pain and suffering, legal defense fees, loss of income and repair costs for stationary objects. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is a personal decision, but you should buy as large an amount as possible.

Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist (UM/UIM)

Your UM/UIM coverage protects you and your vehicle when the “other guys” are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. It can pay for medical payments for you and your occupants and damage to your Kia Sedona.

Due to the fact that many drivers only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages is very important. Usually your uninsured/underinsured motorist coverages are similar to your liability insurance amounts.

Collision coverage protection

Collision coverage pays for damage to your Sedona resulting from a collision with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. A deductible applies then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.

Collision coverage protects against claims like crashing into a ditch, hitting a mailbox, crashing into a building and rolling your car. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so consider dropping it from vehicles that are older. Another option is to choose a higher deductible to bring the cost down.
