When might I need an agent?

When buying adequate coverage for your personal vehicles, there is no one size fits all plan. Every situation is different and a cookie cutter policy won’t apply. For example, these questions could help you determine if your situation will benefit from professional help.

  • Can I rate high risk drivers on liability-only vehicles?
  • Is a blown tire covered by insurance?
  • When can my company non-renew my policy?
  • What if I owe more than I can insure my car for?
  • Which companies will insure high-risk drivers?
  • I have good health insurance, so how much medical payments coverage do I need?
  • Am I insured when driving a different vehicle?

If you don’t know the answers to these questions but one or more may apply to you, then you may want to think about talking to an insurance agent. If you don’t have a local agent, take a second and complete this form or go to this page to view a list of companies.

Auto insurance coverage information

Knowing the specifics of your car insurance policy aids in choosing the right coverages at the best deductibles and correct limits. Policy terminology can be confusing and even agents have difficulty translating policy wording. Listed below are typical coverages available from car insurance companies.

Uninsured and underinsured coverage

Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage provides protection from other drivers when they do not carry enough liability coverage. This coverage pays for hospital bills for your injuries as well as damage to your 2007 Ford Escape.

Because many people carry very low liability coverage limits, it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. This is the reason having UM/UIM coverage is important protection for you and your family. Usually these limits are set the same as your liablity limits.

Collision protection

This covers damage to your Escape caused by collision with an object or car. You have to pay a deductible and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.

Collision coverage pays for things like colliding with a tree, scraping a guard rail, sustaining damage from a pot hole and colliding with another moving vehicle. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so consider removing coverage from older vehicles. Another option is to raise the deductible to save money on collision insurance.

Coverage for medical payments

Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP reimburse you for immediate expenses such as nursing services, X-ray expenses, hospital visits, doctor visits and funeral costs. They are often utilized in addition to your health insurance policy or if you do not have health coverage. It covers you and your occupants and will also cover getting struck while a pedestrian. Personal injury protection coverage is not universally available and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay

Comprehensive coverages

This coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage that is not covered by collision coverage. You first must pay your deductible then your comprehensive coverage will pay.

Comprehensive insurance covers claims such as fire damage, damage from a tornado or hurricane, hitting a deer and damage from flooding. The highest amount a car insurance company will pay at claim time is the cash value of the vehicle, so if the vehicle is not worth much consider removing comprehensive coverage.

Auto liability

Liability insurance can cover injuries or damage you cause to a person or their property that is your fault. It protects you against other people’s claims, and does not provide coverage for damage sustained by your vehicle in an accident.

Coverage consists of three different limits, per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. You commonly see limits of 100/300/100 that translate to a $100,000 limit per person for injuries, a per accident bodily injury limit of $300,000, and property damage coverage for $100,000. Alternatively, you may have a combined limit which combines the three limits into one amount and claims can be made without the split limit restrictions.

Liability coverage pays for claims such as medical expenses, pain and suffering, legal defense fees, emergency aid and court costs. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is up to you, but consider buying higher limits if possible.
