Travelers Guide to Better Coverage

This tool uses pictures to illustrate what coverage’s pertain to different types of auto accidents.  Using accident examples through pictures is simple and great way to explain auto insurance coverages.

Car Insurance Coverage’s

Optional, but highly recommended. Most carriers won’t give you a prior insurance discount if you don’t have at least 10/20 for minimum bodily injury limits. We’re seeing that most companies offer a higher prior insurance discount if your limits are 50/100 or higher. In the long run having limits of 50/100 or higher will save you money.

Common Limits 10/20 – 25/50 – 50/100 – 100/300 – 250/500

Ex. You hit another vehicle and injure the driver and passenger.

Bodily injury will provide money for their injuries, and possible loss of wages, up to your policy limits.

If an insured person is legally liable for an accident, BI coverage pays for injuries/death to people involved in the accident other than the insured driver. BI also pays for legal defense costs if you are sued. Certain exclusions may apply.

In Florida you are not required to carry bodily injury coverage on you auto insurance policy. This is an important coverage because if you hurt someone and don’t have enough bodily injury coverage, you could end up with a judgment or lien against your home for the difference in money owed to someone in an auto accident. Your home insurance may have liability coverage, but it isn’t going to provide coverage for an auto accident.

Mandatory everyone in FL must have 10,000 at least of property damage coverage
Common Limits 10 – 25 – 50 – 100

Ex. You hit another vehicle, and doing damage to that vehicle. This is the coverage that will provide money to fix the other person’s vehicle that you damaged, up to your policy limits.

If an insured person is legally liable for an accident, PD coverage pays for damage to others’ property resulting from the accident. PD also pays for legal defense costs if you are sued. Certain exclusions may apply. Refer to your policy.

Optional Coverage

Common Limits 10/20 – 25/50 – 50/100 – 100/300 – 250/500

Uninsured / Under Insured Motorist Coverage

If a driver or owner of a vehicle is legally liable for an accident but does not have enough insurance, you can use UIM coverage for injuries, including death that you, your resident relatives, and occupants of your insured vehicle sustain, up to the limits you select. Certain exclusions may apply. Refer to your policy.

In Florida drivers aren’t required to carry Bodily Injury Coverage, so Uninsured and Under Insured Motorist Coverage, are often the only way you can guarantee protection for you and your family against others in an auto accident.

If a driver or owner of a vehicle does not have insurance and is legally liable for an accident, you can use UM coverage for injuries, including death that you, your resident relatives, and occupants of your insured vehicle sustain, up

Mandatory Coverage in Florida.

PIP (Personal Injury Protection) often referred to as No Fault
State Limit of $10,000 in coverage.

PIP is a coverage in which the auto insurance company pays, within the specified limits, the medical, hospital and funeral expenses of the insured person, people in the insured vehicle and pedestrians struck by the insured vehicle. PIP is the basic coverage implemented in no-fault automobile insurance states.

In an auto accident PIP is the first coverage for your injuries or loss of wages. This is why it is referred to as no-fault insurance. Because even if it isn’t your fault in an auto accident, your insurance pays the first part of your medical or loss of wages. Note PIP doesn’t pay for damage to your vehicle. to the limits you select. Certain exclusions may apply. Refer to your policy.

Want Better Auto Insurance Rates?

Knowing what insurance companies use to determine your auto insurance rates is important. Here are the determining factors that make up your car insurance rates in the order of importance.

Unfortunately credit is usually the largest factor when insurance companies price your auto insurance. As an agency, we don’t see an actual credit score when quoting.

Companies use credit score to help determine what pricing tier a person fits into when rating. While some companies have 10 or less tiers other companies may have as many as 50 tiers for rating. Although a credit report is obtained, it is usually a soft hit, meaning it does not affect your credit score and it does not show up on the actual credit report.
The same credit score can be looked at very differently among insurance companies.

Some companies may need a 800 credit score or better to get their best pricing.

While a other companies offer their best pricing at a score of 720. As agents we’ve found that there is a company for everyone.

Insurance companies call credit scores an insurance score.

The better your insurance score with a company the better you’re pricing. Other factors like the next items listed also work to determine an insurance score, but usually credit is the largest factor.

It’s no surprise that tickets and accidents affect your rates. In regards to cape coral auto insurance, it is ranked as second in order of importance to insurance pricing.

At fault accidents usually hold more weight in raising rates than speeding tickets. Often individuals with a speeding ticket that very good credit, get penalized very little in regards to pricing.

Most auto insurance companies look at an tickets and accidents you may have had over three (3) years with most insurance companies. While only a few companies look at your driving record up to 5 years.

Tip: If you get a moving violation, try to take the class offered by the state. If you take the class the violations really don’t show up on your driving record.
Insurance companies call credit scores an insurance score.

The better your insurance score with a company the better you’re pricing. Other factors like the next items listed also work to determine an insurance score, but usually credit is the largest factor.

If you haven’t had prior insurance, no company is going to give you their best rate. Most companies don’t give you their best rate until you’ve had insurance for at least one year.

When companies run your driving records, they are also usually able to find out whom you have for insurance, what limits you have with them, and how long you’ve been with that insurance company.

Also having a home insurance policy, can also save you money. Most auto insurance companies give you a discount for having homeowners insurance.

Know your Bodily Injury Limits – Bodily Injury Coverage is optional in FL, but most carriers now will not offer an insurance quote if you don’t have limits of 25/50 or higher.

Meaning if you don’t have Bodily Injury Coverage or carry the state minimum (10/20), most carriers won’t offer you a quote if your current insurance doesn’t have at least 25/50 limits or higher in regards to Bodily Injury Coverage.

To find out what your limits are look on your current policy Declarations Pages.
Bodily Injury Limits; 10/20 – 25/50 – 50/100 – 100/300 – 250/500
