Learning about specific coverages of insurance can help you determine the right coverages and proper limits and deductibles. The coverage terms in a policy can be impossible to understand and reading a policy is terribly boring. These are the normal coverages offered by insurance companies.
Insurance for medical payments
Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage pay for short-term medical expenses for rehabilitation expenses, chiropractic care, EMT expenses and funeral costs. They are often utilized in addition to your health insurance policy or if there is no health insurance coverage. Medical payments and PIP cover not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants and also covers if you are hit as a while walking down the street. PIP is not an option in every state but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage
Liability insurance can cover damages or injuries you inflict on other’s property or people that is your fault. It protects you from legal claims by others, and doesn’t cover damage sustained by your vehicle in an accident.
Liability coverage has three limits: bodily injury for each person injured, bodily injury for the entire accident and a property damage limit. You might see liability limits of 25/50/25 which stand for $25,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, a total of $50,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and a limit of $25,000 paid for damaged property. Some companies may use one number which is a combined single limit which limits claims to one amount without having the split limit caps.
Liability coverage pays for things like medical services, repair costs for stationary objects, emergency aid, structural damage and repair bills for other people’s vehicles. How much coverage you buy is a decision to put some thought into, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase as much as you can afford.
Collision coverage protection
This coverage will pay to fix damage to your F-350 Super Duty resulting from colliding with an object or car. You have to pay a deductible then your collision coverage will kick in.
Collision coverage protects against claims such as sideswiping another vehicle, scraping a guard rail, crashing into a ditch, hitting a parking meter and rolling your car. This coverage can be expensive, so you might think about dropping it from older vehicles. Drivers also have the option to bump up the deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.
Uninsured Motorist or Underinsured Motorist insurance
This protects you and your vehicle’s occupants from other motorists when they either have no liability insurance or not enough. Covered losses include medical payments for you and your occupants and also any damage incurred to your Ford F-350 Super Duty.
Since a lot of drivers only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. This is the reason having UM/UIM coverage is very important. Normally these limits are similar to your liability insurance amounts.
Comprehensive coverage (or Other than Collision)
This coverage will pay to fix damage that is not covered by collision coverage. You first have to pay a deductible then your comprehensive coverage will pay.
Comprehensive coverage pays for claims such as falling objects, a broken windshield and damage from a tornado or hurricane. The maximum payout you’ll receive from a claim is the ACV or actual cash value, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value consider removing comprehensive coverage.
