Coverages Available When Purchasing A Car Insurance

Are you thinking of getting an insurance policy for your car but you don't know the policy that is suitable and tailored to meet every one of your needs down to the last detail?
Well, we've taken the liberty of preparing this article to serve that purpose.
Below are some of the coverages under auto insurance:

  • Liability Coverage: Under this, we have two types of coverage; coverage for body injury and coverage for personal property coverage. As a legal requirement for drivers in almost every state, liability coverage pays for someone's medical expenses, personal injuries and damage to property if the fault lies with you.
  • Collision Coverage: If you collide with another vehicle or something stationary like a telephone pole, collision coverage helps to pay for the damages to your car.
  • Comprehensive Coverage: Otherwise known as ''Other Than Collision'' or ''Fire and Theft''. If there is a break and something gets stolen from your car or if there is a dent due to hail or storm, comprehensive coverage helps in covering for the losses to your car.
  • Medical Bills Coverage: If you or any other occupant in your car gets hurt in an accident, this coverage can pay for your's and their medical bills.
  • Personal Injury Protection: PIP is very much identical to Medical Bills Coverage. The difference here is that PIP has a much wider coverage capacity than Medical Bills Coverage. It can help pay for medical and rehabilitation expenses, funeral loss, chemotherapy or dialysis expenses, etc.
  • Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Coverage: If the fault lies with an uninsured or underinsured motorist in an accident, this policy provides liability (bodily injury and property damage) coverage for you.


So, when you are setting out to buy an auto insurance, make sure you talk to a seasoned insurance broker or agent to find out the best kind of coverage that will be suitable for you. Make sure you understand what each option does and how it would work if you ever needed it. Also, you can get more than one coverage at a time so far as it provides the best car insurance that will fit with your budget.
