Understanding your auto policy

BI? UM? PIP? Trying to make sense of your automobile policy coverage options and the limits that you need? We can help! We’ve covered the basics below, which provides the information you need (including acronyms!) to understand your automobile insurance policy and coverage options.

Comprehensive and Collision Coverage

Collision – Covers damage to your car when your car hits, or is hit by, another vehicle or other object. Collision pays to repair your vehicle, less the deductible you choose. For older cars, you may want to consider dropping this coverage, since it is typically limited to the cash value of your car. This coverage is not required by a state, but if you have a loan or a lease, then the lienholder will require it.

Comprehensive (Other Than Collision or OTC) – Covers your vehicle, and sometimes other vehicles you may be driving, for losses resulting from incidents other than collision. This includes damage to your car if it is stolen or damaged by flood, fire, falling objects or animals. States do not require that you purchase collision or comprehensive coverage, but if you have a car loan, your lender may insist that you carry it until your loan is paid off.

Liability Protection

Bodily Injury Liability (BI) – Mandatory in most states, this covers injuries that you, the designated driver or policyholder cause to someone else. Claims for bodily injury include medical bills, loss of income, or pain and suffering. It does NOT cover the cost of damage to your vehicle, or to you or other people on your policy.

Property Damage Liability (PD) – Covers you or someone driving the car with your permission if the car damages someone else’s property. It also provides you with legal defense if another party files a lawsuit against you.

Uninsured and Underinsured Motorist Coverage (UM or UIM) –  This coverage will reimburse you, a member of your family, or a designated driver if one of you is hit by an uninsured or hit-and-run driver. Underinsured Motorist coverage comes into play when an at-fault driver has insufficient insurance to pay for your total loss. This coverage will also protect you if you are hit as a pedestrian.
