Insurance policy specifics

Having a good grasp of your insurance policy can be of help when determining the right coverages at the best deductibles and correct limits. Insurance terms can be impossible to understand and even agents have difficulty translating policy wording.

Protection from uninsured/underinsured drivers

This provides protection when the “other guys” do not carry enough liability coverage. It can pay for injuries sustained by your vehicle’s occupants as well as your vehicle’s damage.

Because many people have only the minimum liability required by law, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages is important protection for you and your family.

Medical expense insurance

Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP kick in for immediate expenses for surgery, EMT expenses, nursing services and rehabilitation expenses. They are often used in conjunction with a health insurance policy or if there is no health insurance coverage. Coverage applies to you and your occupants as well as being hit by a car walking across the street. Personal Injury Protection is only offered in select states and may carry a deductible

Comprehensive (Other than Collision)

This coverage will pay to fix damage from a wide range of events other than collision. You need to pay your deductible first then your comprehensive coverage will pay.

Comprehensive coverage protects against claims such as fire damage, a broken windshield and damage from flooding. The highest amount your insurance company will pay is the cash value of the vehicle, so if it’s not worth much more than your deductible consider dropping full coverage.

Coverage for liability

Liability coverage protects you from injuries or damage you cause to other’s property or people. Coverage consists of three different limits, bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. You commonly see values of 50/100/50 that translate to $50,000 bodily injury coverage, a per accident bodily injury limit of $100,000, and property damage coverage for $50,000.

Liability can pay for things like loss of income, repair costs for stationary objects and legal defense fees. How much liability should you purchase? That is a personal decision, but consider buying higher limits if possible.

Collision coverage

Collision insurance covers damage to your XTS resulting from colliding with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. You have to pay a deductible and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.

Collision coverage protects against claims like hitting a parking meter, crashing into a ditch, damaging your car on a curb and hitting a mailbox. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so consider dropping it from vehicles that are 8 years or older. You can also bump up the deductible to save money on collision insurance.
