  • How much liability do I need to cover my assets?
  • Is my custom paint covered by insurance?
  • Is my teen driver covered when they drive my company car?
  • What is the ISO rating for a 2011 Lexus GS 450h?
  • Is extra glass coverage worth it?
  • Is my dog or cat covered if injured in an accident?
  • Does coverage extend to a rental car in a foreign country?

If you can’t answer these questions but you think they might apply to your situation, you may need to chat with an agent. If you don’t have a local agent, fill out this quick form.

Coverages available on your policy

Knowing the specifics of a car insurance policy can help you determine which coverages you need and the correct deductibles and limits. Policy terminology can be ambiguous and even agents have difficulty translating policy wording.

UM/UIM Coverage

This coverage protects you and your vehicle’s occupants when the “other guys” either have no liability insurance or not enough. It can pay for injuries to you and your family and damage to your 2011 Lexus GS 450h.

Since many drivers only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is important protection for you and your family. Usually the UM/UIM limits are similar to your liability insurance amounts.

Medical costs insurance

Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance pay for immediate expenses such as nursing services, EMT expenses, pain medications and funeral costs. They are often utilized in addition to your health insurance policy or if you lack health insurance entirely. Coverage applies to not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants in addition to being hit by a car walking across the street. PIP coverage is only offered in select states and may carry a deductible

Auto collision coverage

Collision coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage from colliding with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. You first must pay a deductible then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.

Collision coverage protects against claims like hitting a mailbox, backing into a parked car, colliding with a tree, scraping a guard rail and hitting a parking meter. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so consider removing coverage from lower value vehicles. Drivers also have the option to raise the deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.

Liability car insurance

Liability coverage protects you from damage or injury you incur to a person or their property that is your fault. It protects YOU against claims from other people. It does not cover damage sustained by your vehicle in an accident.

Liability coverage has three limits: bodily injury for each person injured, bodily injury for the entire accident and a property damage limit. You might see liability limits of 50/100/50 that means you have $50,000 bodily injury coverage, a limit of $100,000 in injury protection per accident, and property damage coverage for $50,000. Another option is a combined limit that pays claims from the same limit and claims can be made without the split limit restrictions.

Liability insurance covers claims like bail bonds, repair costs for stationary objects, court costs, structural damage and legal defense fees. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is a personal decision, but you should buy as high a limit as you can afford.

Comprehensive or Other Than Collision

Comprehensive insurance coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage caused by mother nature, theft, vandalism and other events. You need to pay your deductible first and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.

Comprehensive coverage pays for claims such as damage from flooding, vandalism and rock chips in glass. The maximum payout you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the market value of your vehicle, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value it’s not worth carrying full coverage.
