What Does Auto Insurance Cover?
A full coverage auto insurance policy combines coverages to cover any danger that may face you and your vehicle. Full coverage policies may include:
- Comprehensive Coverage provides compensation for damages to your vehicle caused by fire, wind, hail, lightning, smoke, falling objects, theft, vandalism and more.
- Collision Coverage provides compensation for damages to your vehicle caused by a collision with another vehicle or object.
- Liability insurance covers bodily injury and property damage that you may cause someone else while operating the insured vehicle.
- Medical Payments Coverage provides compensation for injuries you and your passengers may sustain after an accident, no matter who caused the accident. This type of insurance can help with medical bills as well as lost wages in case you or your passengers are unable to work due to the injury.
- Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist covers damages and injuries that occur in an accident involving another driver who is not carrying proper insurance at the time of the accident.
- Roadside Assistance helps with the expenses related to trip interruptions, such as running out of gas or needing to be towed.
Not all policies are created equal, so be sure to ask an insurance agent about the right car insurance limits for your vehicle.
Insuring a Car’s Full Value
Some people worry about how they will afford a new car following an accident that totals their vehicle. If you are one of them, ask your agent if you can include either of the following options on your plan:
Replacement cost value (RCV) coverage can pay you enough money to replace your totaled car with one of similar value.
Gap insurance will pay you enough money to pay off the loan on your vehicle if it is financed. Since loan costs and vehicle values often vary, this coverage might prove a great help.
