Knowing the specifics of your policy can help you determine the best coverages for your vehicles. Policy terminology can be confusing and reading a policy is terribly boring. Shown next are typical coverages available from insurance companies.
Liability coverages – Liability coverage will cover damages or injuries you inflict on people or other property in an accident. This insurance protects YOU from claims by other people, and does not provide coverage for your injuries or vehicle damage.
Liability coverage has three limits: per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. You commonly see values of 25/50/25 that translate to a limit of $25,000 per injured person, a total of $50,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and a total limit of $25,000 for damage to vehicles and property.
Liability coverage protects against things like funeral expenses, pain and suffering, attorney fees and repair bills for other people’s vehicles. How much liability coverage do you need? That is a decision to put some thought into, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase as high a limit as you can afford.
Collision coverages – Collision coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage resulting from colliding with an object or car. A deductible applies then your collision coverage will kick in.
Collision insurance covers things such as backing into a parked car, crashing into a building, scraping a guard rail and driving through your garage door. This coverage can be expensive, so consider removing coverage from older vehicles. Drivers also have the option to raise the deductible to bring the cost down.
Coverage for uninsured or underinsured drivers – This coverage protects you and your vehicle’s occupants when other motorists do not carry enough liability coverage. This coverage pays for injuries sustained by your vehicle’s occupants as well as damage to your Dodge Avenger.
Since a lot of drivers have only the minimum liability required by law, their limits can quickly be used up. So UM/UIM coverage should not be overlooked.
Comprehensive insurance – This covers damage from a wide range of events other than collision. You first must pay your deductible and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive coverage protects against claims like vandalism, damage from a tornado or hurricane and damage from getting keyed. The maximum payout you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the actual cash value, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value it’s not worth carrying full coverage.
Coverage for medical expenses – Med pay and PIP coverage reimburse you for short-term medical expenses like rehabilitation expenses, doctor visits, funeral costs, hospital visits and prosthetic devices. They are utilized in addition to your health insurance policy or if you are not covered by health insurance. It covers both the driver and occupants as well as any family member struck as a pedestrian. PIP is not an option in every state and may carry a deductible
