Making Sense of Your Auto Insurance Policy

Simply put it's a contract between you and an insurance company

A car insurance policy is a contract between you and an insurance company. In exchange for your premium payment, insurance companies make a promise to cover certain injuries and damages. Your premium goes towards pre-selected coverages that are situations or events your insurance company will pay for. Essentially, you are paying a little now to protect you from potentially paying very large amounts later.

When applying for car insurance, we will ask you basic questions about you and your car. Factors such as your age, where you live, and the type of car you drive will determine your basic premium. The final premium will be determined by the limits, deductibles, and options you choose that best meet your insurance needs.

Once you have selected a car insurance estimate and begun making payments, coverage will become available on a specified effective date. If you are involved in an accident or other covered event, you may file a claim. A claim is your request for the insurance company to fulfill their promise to pay covered damages or injuries. If it is covered, the insurance company will pay up to the specified limits after you have met any applicable deductibles.

A car insurance policy is a legal contract and specifically details what is and is not covered. Overall, most car insurance coverages are standard among insurance companies, but coverage can vary. Reading your policy is the best way to understand what to expect should you need to file a claim.

What is a Deductible

In most circumstances, you most likely will be required to pay a deductible. Car insurance policies can have deductibles ranging between $250 to more than $1,000. This means the amount of your claim will be reduced by the amount of your deductible.

Coverage Details

Your insurance policy will also only cover you for the coverages you choose. As a reminder, normal maintenance or wear is not covered under a car insurance policy. In general, you can obtain car insurance quotes that include the following coverages:

Liability Coverage

This is commonly the only coverage required by law. If you are the cause of an accident (at-fault), your car insurance policy will pay for:

Other driver’s injuries
Other driver passengers’ injuries
Lawsuits that are filed against you
Damage to someone else’s vehicle
Damage to someone else’s property (mailbox, fence, etc.)

Comprehensive Coverage

Also known as acts of nature coverage, this coverage pays for claims resulting from events outside of your control including:

Theft of your car
Collisions with animals
Windshield and glass damage
Falling trees and other objects
Storms including wind, hail, and lightning

Collision Coverage

The term ‘collision’ is often misleading. This coverage only pays if another person causes an accident with you and your vehicle. It does not cover acts of nature. However, collision coverage will pay for your injuries and damages regardless of who is at fault.

Uninsured / Underinsured Motorist Coverage

Unfortunately, not every driver on the road has insurance. If an uncovered motorist causes an accident and you sustain injuries or damage, this coverage can pay you. If the driver has no coverage, the uninsured motorist coverage will pay. Should the driver not have enough coverage, the underinsured motorist coverage will pay. This coverage also pays if you are involved in a hit-and-run accident in your vehicle, as a pedestrian, or while riding your bicycle.

Optional Coverages

Each insurance company offers a number of extra coverage options. Common additional coverage options include rental reimbursement, loan gap coverage, and roadside assistance. Review your needs with one of our professional insurance agents and obtain car insurance rates for the extra coverages you may need.
