Collision and Comprehensive (other than Collision) Coverages
Collision and Comprehensive (other than collision) coverages pay for damage to your automobile. You can purchase either or both of these coverages for each vehicle you own. If you have an auto loan you may be required to purchase both.
- Collision coverage insures you against damage to your vehicle caused during an accident.
- Comprehensive (other than collision) coverage insures you against all other physical damage to your car caused by such events as fire, theft, flood and vandalism.
Collision and comprehensive (other than collision) coverage usually includes a deductible, which can range from $100 to $1,000. If your car is damaged, the Insurance company pays only for the damage in excess of the deductible you selected. The higher the deductible, the lower the premium.
Liability coverage pays for injuries you cause to other people and damage you cause to other people’s property when you are at fault in an automobile accident.
Medical Payments coverage
Medical Payments coverage pays medical expenses (up to a specified dollar limit) for you and passengers of your car who are injured in an automobile accident, no matter who is at fault. If you and your passengers have health insurance, you may not need this coverage.
Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage
This coverage pays if you are injured by a person who is completely uninsured or doesn’t have enough liability insurance to cover your injuries. It also covers you if you are in an accident with a hit-and-run driver.
Personal Injury Protection (PIP)
This covers medical expenses for injuries sustained by you and any passengers in your vehicle from an auto accident regardless of who is at fault; can also cover lost wages and/or other accident-related expenses after Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Coverage.
Optional or special coverage includes extras such as towing, rental reimbursement, and roadside assistance. None of these coverages are required.
How much do I need?
Choosing the appropriate level of auto insurance coverage depends on a number of factors including assets you must protect (liability coverage), value of your vehicle (collision and comprehensive), the amount of money you can afford to pay out-of-pocket (deductibles) and your tolerance for risk.
Frequently Asked Questions about Auto Insurance
Who has the cheapest auto insurance?
No one company always offers the cheapest auto insurance. You should shop your auto insurance with an independent agent so they can quote you multiple companies at once so then you can compare coverage and pricing that suits your needs and budget.
What insurance is required for a car?
Typically, liability insurance is the only required insurance coverage. Beyond that, if you have a loan on your vehicle your lender will require you to carry full coverage on the vehicle until it is paid off.
Who has the best auto insurance?
The best auto insurance is the company that has the best coverage and pricing for your situation. No one company offers “the best car insurance.” It is purely dependent on your needs, budget, and coverage requirements.
