Learning about specific coverages of your policy can help you determine which coverages you need and proper limits and deductibles. Policy terminology can be difficult to understand and nobody wants to actually read their policy.
Collision coverages – This coverage will pay to fix damage to your Explorer resulting from a collision with a stationary object or other vehicle. You have to pay a deductible and then insurance will cover the remainder.
Collision can pay for things such as backing into a parked car, driving through your garage door, sustaining damage from a pot hole, rolling your car and hitting a parking meter. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so consider removing coverage from vehicles that are older. Another option is to bump up the deductible to bring the cost down.
Comprehensive protection – Comprehensive insurance coverage will pay to fix damage caused by mother nature, theft, vandalism and other events. You first have to pay a deductible then your comprehensive coverage will pay.
Comprehensive can pay for things like hail damage, falling objects, theft and a tree branch falling on your vehicle. The most your auto insurance company will pay is the ACV or actual cash value, so if the vehicle is not worth much consider removing comprehensive coverage.
Uninsured or underinsured coverage – Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage provides protection from other motorists when they either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. It can pay for injuries sustained by your vehicle’s occupants as well as your vehicle’s damage.
Since many drivers only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, their limits can quickly be used up. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is very important.
Liability car insurance – Liability coverage will cover damage or injury you incur to other’s property or people by causing an accident. It protects you against claims from other people. Liability doesn’t cover damage sustained by your vehicle in an accident.
Liability coverage has three limits: per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. You might see policy limits of 50/100/50 which stand for $50,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, a total of $100,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and $50,000 of coverage for damaged propery.
Liability can pay for claims such as medical expenses, attorney fees and emergency aid. How much coverage you buy is a personal decision, but you should buy as large an amount as possible.
Medical expense coverage – Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP kick in for bills for things like chiropractic care, funeral costs, EMT expenses, ambulance fees and nursing services. They are used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance plan or if you do not have health coverage. Medical payments and PIP cover you and your occupants and also covers any family member struck as a pedestrian. Personal Injury Protection is only offered in select states but can be used in place of medical payments coverage
