How do I know if I need professional advice?

When choosing coverage for your vehicles, there really is not a single plan that fits everyone. Every situation is different and a cookie cutter policy won’t apply. These are some specific questions might help in determining whether you would benefit from professional advice.

  • Am I covered when driving on a suspended license?
  • Am I covered if I break a side mirror?
  • How high should my uninsured/underinsured coverage be in my state?
  • How do I buy GAP insurance?
  • Will my insurance pay for OEM parts?
  • Does my car insurance cover rental cars?
  • Are all vehicle passengers covered by medical payments coverage?
  • Why is insurance for a teen driver so high?
  • Is pleasure use cheaper than using my 2009 Toyota Matrix to commute?
  • Do I get a pro-rated refund if I cancel my policy early?

Specific coverages for a 2009 Toyota Matrix

Knowing the specifics of auto insurance can help you determine the right coverages and proper limits and deductibles. Auto insurance terms can be ambiguous and even agents have difficulty translating policy wording. Listed below are typical coverages offered by auto insurance companies.

Comprehensive coverage (or Other than Collision)

This coverage covers damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You first have to pay a deductible and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.

Comprehensive coverage protects against claims like fire damage, damage from getting keyed, theft and rock chips in glass. The maximum payout your auto insurance company will pay is the cash value of the vehicle, so if the vehicle’s value is low consider dropping full coverage.

Uninsured Motorist or Underinsured Motorist insurance

This coverage protects you and your vehicle’s occupants from other drivers when they are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. Covered claims include injuries to you and your family and damage to your Toyota Matrix.

Because many people only carry the minimum required liability limits, their limits can quickly be used up. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is a good idea. Normally the UM/UIM limits are similar to your liability insurance amounts.

Coverage for liability

Liability coverage protects you from injuries or damage you cause to other people or property that is your fault. This coverage protects you against claims from other people, 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 policy limits of 50/100/50 which means a $50,000 limit per person for injuries, $100,000 for the entire accident, and a limit of $50,000 paid for damaged property. Occasionally you may see one limit called combined single limit (CSL) which combines the three limits into one amount with no separate limits for injury or property damage.

Liability coverage protects against claims such as pain and suffering, legal defense fees and emergency aid. How much liability should you purchase? That is up to you, but consider buying higher limits if possible.

Collision insurance

This covers damage to your Matrix resulting from colliding with an object or car. You first must pay a deductible then your collision coverage will kick in.

Collision can pay for claims such as backing into a parked car, colliding with another moving vehicle, rolling your car, scraping a guard rail and sustaining damage from a pot hole. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from older vehicles. It’s also possible to choose a higher deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.

Insurance for medical payments

Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage pay for immediate expenses like prosthetic devices, doctor visits and hospital visits. They are often used in conjunction with a health insurance policy or if you do not have health coverage. They cover both the driver and occupants in addition to being hit by a car walking across the street. Personal Injury Protection is not universally available and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay
