After a car accident, the last thing you need to be worrying about is paying any medical bills or property damages. Having proper car insurance coverage for any car accident could save you a lot of money and a lot of headaches. The following are some descriptions of different types of insurance you can obtain to help after a car accident.
Required by State Law
Liability insurance covers property damage and injuries resulting from a car accident. In Idaho, a motorist must have a minimum of $25,000 bodily injury per person per accident and $15,000 for property damage. If you can afford it, it is a very good idea to have a higher coverage amount.
Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Protection
Though state laws require motorists to carry car insurance, some do not. Carrying uninsured motorist protection can greatly help you if you get hit by someone without car insurance or someone with low coverage. If you are hit by someone with coverage that does not cover your damages, your uninsured/underinsured motorist protection will pay the rest of the expenses.
Recommended but not Required
Liability insurance will cover the damages incurred for an automobile accident. If your car has been damaged from weather, hit by a deer, stolen, etc. you would need comprehensive coverage to pay for the damage.
Personal Injury Protection (PIP)
Recommended but not Required
After an accident, medical bills can run very high. Having additional coverage with personal injury protection will help you to be able to pay all of your medical bills. Medical bills of the driver and any other passengers in the vehicle at the time of the accident will be covered no matter who was at fault for the accident.
Recommended for Cars of High Value
Collision coverage is insurance to help pay for any repairs to your vehicle after an accident. If the cost to repair your vehicle exceeds the value of it, most likely the car will be declared totaled. Collision coverage will pay for the value of your car. If you drive an older vehicle that is not worth much, it’s not likely that carrying collision coverage will be beneficial to you.
