Specific coverages for a 2013 Chevy Spark

Knowing the specifics of insurance can help you determine the best coverages for your vehicles. Policy terminology can be confusing and reading a policy is terribly boring.

Uninsured and underinsured coverage – Your UM/UIM coverage protects you and your vehicle’s occupants from other motorists when they either have no liability insurance or not enough. This coverage pays for hospital bills for your injuries as well as damage to your Chevy Spark.

Since a lot of drivers only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, their limits can quickly be used up. So UM/UIM coverage is important protection for you and your family. Normally these limits are similar to your liability insurance amounts.

Coverage for medical payments – Med pay and PIP coverage reimburse you for expenses for chiropractic care, hospital visits and pain medications. They are used in conjunction with a health insurance policy or if you do not have health coverage. They cover you and your occupants in addition to being hit by a car walking across the street. Personal Injury Protection is not an option in every state but can be used in place of medical payments coverage

Liability – Liability coverage can cover injuries or damage you cause to 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: bodily injury for each person injured, bodily injury for the entire accident and a property damage limit. You commonly see values of 25/50/25 which means $25,000 bodily injury coverage, a per accident bodily injury limit of $50,000, and a total limit of $25,000 for damage to vehicles and property. Alternatively, you may have one number which is a combined single limit which provides one coverage limit rather than limiting it on a per person basis.

Liability can pay for claims like funeral expenses, emergency aid, pain and suffering and loss of income. How much coverage you buy is up to you, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase as much as you can afford.

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

Collision can pay for claims such as damaging your car on a curb, backing into a parked car, colliding with another moving vehicle and crashing into a ditch. This coverage can be expensive, so consider dropping it from vehicles that are 8 years or older. It’s also possible to bump up the deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.

Comprehensive coverages – Comprehensive insurance pays for damage caused by mother nature, theft, vandalism and other events. You first must pay your deductible and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.

Comprehensive coverage pays for things like a broken windshield, a tree branch falling on your vehicle, vandalism, damage from flooding and hail damage. The maximum amount your insurance company will pay is the market value of your vehicle, so if it’s not worth much more than your deductible it’s not worth carrying full coverage.
