Understanding the coverages of a car insurance policy can help you determine which coverages you need and the correct deductibles and limits. Policy terminology can be impossible to understand and reading a policy is terribly boring.
Collision coverage – Collision coverage covers damage to your Equinox caused by collision with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. You will need to pay your deductible then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.
Collision can pay for claims like rolling your car, damaging your car on a curb, crashing into a building, sustaining damage from a pot hole and colliding with a tree. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so consider dropping it from vehicles that are 8 years or older. It’s also possible to raise the deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.
Auto liability insurance – This coverage can cover damage or injury you incur to people or other property by causing an accident. This coverage protects you against other people’s claims, and doesn’t cover damage sustained by your vehicle in an accident.
It consists of three limits, per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. As an example, you may have liability limits of 50/100/50 which stand for $50,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, a per accident bodily injury limit of $100,000, and a total limit of $50,000 for damage to vehicles and property. Occasionally you may see a combined single limit or CSL which combines the three limits into one amount with no separate limits for injury or property damage.
Liability coverage pays for things like legal defense fees, repair bills for other people’s vehicles and attorney fees. How much liability should you purchase? That is your choice, but buy as much as you can afford.
Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist (UM/UIM) – Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage protects you and your vehicle from other drivers when they either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. This coverage pays for injuries to you and your family as well as damage to your Chevy Equinox.
Since many drivers have only the minimum liability required by law, it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is a good idea. Usually your uninsured/underinsured motorist coverages are similar to your liability insurance amounts.
Comprehensive insurance – This covers damage from a wide range of events other than collision. You need to pay your deductible first and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.
Comprehensive can pay for claims like hail damage, hitting a bird and fire damage. The maximum amount 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.
Med pay and Personal Injury Protection (PIP) – Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP kick in for bills for rehabilitation expenses, pain medications, chiropractic care and dental work. They are often utilized in addition to your health insurance plan or if you do not have health coverage. Coverage applies to you and your occupants in addition to getting struck while a pedestrian. Personal injury protection coverage is only offered in select states but can be used in place of medical payments coverage
