Learning about specific coverages of your policy can help you determine the right coverages for your vehicles. The terms used in a policy can be ambiguous and even agents have difficulty translating policy wording. These are the normal coverages offered by car insurance companies.
This protects you from damage or injury you incur to other’s property or people by causing an accident. This coverage protects you against claims from other people. It does not cover damage sustained by your vehicle in an accident.
Coverage consists of three different limits, bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. You commonly see liability limits of 100/300/100 that translate to a $100,000 limit per person for injuries, a limit of $300,000 in injury protection per accident, and a total limit of $100,000 for damage to vehicles and property.
Liability can pay for things such as funeral expenses, legal defense fees, emergency aid, court costs and repair costs for stationary objects. How much coverage you buy is a decision to put some thought into, but consider buying as high a limit as you can afford.
Collision coverage covers damage to your CTS Wagon resulting from colliding with a stationary object or other vehicle. You will need to pay your deductible and then insurance will cover the remainder.
Collision can pay for things like rolling your car, crashing into a building, backing into a parked car and colliding with a tree. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so consider removing coverage from older vehicles. Drivers also have the option to choose a higher deductible to bring the cost down.
Protection from uninsured/underinsured drivers
This coverage protects you and your vehicle’s occupants when the “other guys” either have no liability insurance or not enough. This coverage pays for injuries sustained by your vehicle’s occupants and damage to your 2013 Cadillac CTS Wagon.
Because many people only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. So UM/UIM coverage should not be overlooked.
Comprehensive (Other than Collision)
Comprehensive insurance coverage pays for damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You first must pay your deductible and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive insurance covers claims like hitting a deer, a broken windshield and theft. The highest amount you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the ACV or actual cash value, so if the vehicle is not worth much it’s not worth carrying full coverage.
Medical expense insurance
Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP kick in for expenses like EMT expenses, prosthetic devices, doctor visits, hospital visits and pain medications. They are often used to fill the gap from your health insurance plan or if there is no health insurance coverage. They cover both the driver and occupants and also covers getting struck while a pedestrian. Personal injury protection coverage is not universally available but can be used in place of medical payments coverage
