Tailor your coverage to you

When it comes to buying proper insurance coverage, there really is no “best” method to buy coverage. Every situation is different.

Here are some questions about coverages that could help you determine if your insurance needs might need professional guidance.

  • Should I sign the liability waiver when renting a car?
  • Am I covered if I break a side mirror?
  • Does my policy cover me when driving someone else’s vehicle?
  • Is rental equipment covered for theft or damage?
  • Is there coverage for injuries to my pets?
  • What is medical payments coverage?

If you can’t answer these questions but you know they apply to you, you may need to chat with a licensed agent. If you don’t have a local agent, simply complete this short form.

Auto insurance coverages

Having a good grasp of insurance helps when choosing the best coverages for your vehicles. The terms used in a policy can be difficult to understand and reading a policy is terribly boring.

Medical costs insurance

Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage pay for immediate expenses for dental work, pain medications, chiropractic care, funeral costs and doctor visits. They are used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance policy or if you are not covered by health insurance. Coverage applies to you and your occupants and will also cover being hit by a car walking across the street. Personal Injury Protection is not universally available but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage

Collision coverage protection

Collision coverage covers damage to your Dakota resulting from colliding with an object or car. You have to pay a deductible then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.

Collision can pay for things like crashing into a building, hitting a parking meter, crashing into a ditch, hitting a mailbox and colliding with another moving vehicle. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so you might think about dropping it from older vehicles. It’s also possible to raise the deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.

Liability auto insurance

Liability insurance protects you from damage that occurs to people or other property in an accident. It protects YOU against claims from other people, and doesn’t cover damage sustained by your vehicle in an accident.

It consists of three limits, per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. Your policy might show limits of 100/300/100 that translate to $100,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, $300,000 for the entire accident, and property damage coverage for $100,000. Some companies may use one limit called combined single limit (CSL) which provides one coverage limit with no separate limits for injury or property damage.

Liability insurance covers things like legal defense fees, repair bills for other people’s vehicles and bail bonds. How much liability coverage do you need? That is up to you, but you should buy as high a limit as you can afford.

Comprehensive 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 can pay for things such as vandalism, theft, hitting a bird and fire damage. The most you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the actual cash value, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value consider removing comprehensive coverage.

UM/UIM Coverage

This protects you and your vehicle when the “other guys” do not carry enough liability coverage. Covered claims include injuries sustained by your vehicle’s occupants as well as damage to your Dodge Dakota.

Since a lot of drivers have only the minimum liability required by law, it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages is very important. Frequently your uninsured/underinsured motorist coverages are set the same as your liablity limits.
