Auto Insurance Coverages

Understanding the coverages afforded to you by the policy you hold can help simplify the claims process. The following are six common types of coverage provided by auto insurance policies.

  • Bodily Injury Liability — This coverage protects policyholders if they are responsible for an accident that causes bodily injury to another party.
  • Property Damage Liability — This provides coverage when a policyholder causes damages to another party’s property.
  • Medical Payment Coverage — This coverage applies to the medical treatment of injuries the policyholder and their passengers suffer.
  • Collision Coverage — This covers damage to the policyholder’s vehicle.
  • Comprehensive Coverage — This kind of coverage insures the policyholder’s car if it suffers damage due to floods, fires, accidents, and theft.
  • Uninsured Motorist Coverage — This provides coverage for injuries or damages from an accident with an uninsured driver.

Even if the correct type of insurance covers you, your carrier may limit the amount of money you can receive. If this happens to you, you should contact an insurance dispute lawyer who can assist with determining whether you can file an insurance dispute claim against your insurer.
