Car insurance coverages for a 2001 GMC Safari

Learning about specific coverages of a car insurance policy can be of help when determining which coverages you need and proper limits and deductibles. The coverage terms in a policy can be ambiguous and even agents have difficulty translating policy wording. Shown next are the usual coverages available from car insurance companies.

Medical expense coverage

Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage kick in for immediate expenses for things like rehabilitation expenses, X-ray expenses, doctor visits, chiropractic care and prosthetic devices. They can be utilized in addition to your health insurance program or if there is no health insurance coverage. Medical payments and PIP cover both the driver and occupants and will also cover being hit by a car walking across the street. PIP coverage is not universally available and may carry a deductible

Uninsured or underinsured coverage

This coverage protects you and your vehicle from other motorists when they either have no liability insurance or not enough. This coverage pays for injuries to you and your family and also any damage incurred to your GMC Safari.

Due to the fact that many drivers have only the minimum liability required by law, it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is very important. Normally your uninsured/underinsured motorist coverages do not exceed the liability coverage limits.

Collision coverage

Collision coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage resulting from colliding with a stationary object or other vehicle. You first must pay a deductible and then insurance will cover the remainder.

Collision coverage pays for claims such as hitting a parking meter, backing into a parked car, crashing into a ditch and sustaining damage from a pot hole. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so you might think about dropping it from vehicles that are older. Another option is to choose a higher deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.

Auto liability

This coverage will cover injuries or damage you cause to people or other property in an accident. It protects YOU against other people’s claims, and does not provide coverage for your injuries or vehicle damage.

It consists of three limits, bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. Your policy might show values of 50/100/50 that means you have a $50,000 limit per person for injuries, a total of $100,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and $50,000 of coverage for damaged property. Some companies may use one number which is a combined single limit which combines the three limits into one amount and claims can be made without the split limit restrictions.

Liability can pay for claims such as emergency aid, structural damage, loss of income and repair bills for other people’s vehicles. How much liability coverage do you need? That is your choice, but you should buy higher limits if possible.

Comprehensive protection

This coverage pays for damage caused by mother nature, theft, vandalism and other events. You first must pay your deductible then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage.

Comprehensive coverage pays for claims like rock chips in glass, hitting a deer, fire damage and vandalism. The most your car insurance company will pay is the actual cash value, so if the vehicle’s value is low it’s probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.
