Effectively comparing insurance coverage prices can be exhausting if you don’t understand the most efficient way. You can spend countless hours discussing policy coverages with insurance agencies in your area, or you could use online quoting to get pricing more quickly.
Most of the larger companies belong to an insurance system where prospective buyers enter their policy data once, and each participating company then returns a price quote. This eliminates the need for form submissions for every insurance coverage company.

Knowing the specifics of a auto insurance policy aids in choosing appropriate coverage and proper limits and deductibles. The coverage terms in a policy can be confusing and nobody wants to actually read their policy.
Collision coverage will pay to fix damage to your Fusion Energi resulting from colliding with another car or object. You will need to pay your deductible and then insurance will cover the remainder.
Collision coverage pays for things such as driving through your garage door, colliding with another moving vehicle and backing into a parked car. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so consider removing coverage from vehicles that are 8 years or older. It’s also possible to bump up the deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.
Coverage for medical expenses
Med pay and PIP coverage reimburse you for short-term medical expenses like prosthetic devices, EMT expenses, hospital visits, doctor visits and chiropractic care. They can be used in conjunction with a health insurance program or if there is no health insurance coverage. They cover all vehicle occupants as well as if you are hit as a while walking down the street. PIP is only offered in select states and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay
Comprehensive auto insurance
This 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 can pay for things such as hail damage, damage from flooding, rock chips in glass, hitting a deer and damage from getting keyed. The maximum payout you’ll receive from a claim is the actual cash value, so if the vehicle is not worth much consider removing comprehensive coverage.
Coverage for uninsured or underinsured drivers
Your UM/UIM coverage gives you protection from other drivers when they are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. Covered losses include injuries to you and your family as well as damage to your 2014 Ford Fusion Energi.
Since many drivers carry very low liability coverage limits, their limits can quickly be used up. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is important protection for you and your family. Frequently your uninsured/underinsured motorist coverages are set the same as your liablity limits.
This coverage will cover injuries or damage you cause to other people or property in an accident. It protects YOU against claims from other people. It does not cover damage to your own property or vehicle.
Split limit liability has three limits of coverage: bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. You might see values of 100/300/100 that translate to $100,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, a per accident bodily injury limit of $300,000, and a limit of $100,000 paid for damaged property. Another option is one limit called combined single limit (CSL) that pays claims from the same limit rather than limiting it on a per person basis.
Liability coverage pays for claims like legal defense fees, medical services, repair costs for stationary objects and bail bonds. How much liability should you purchase? That is a decision to put some thought into, but you should buy higher limits if possible.
