Auto Insurance Chesterfield VA { Policy Agreement }

Insurance & Financial Services | Auto Insurance Chesterfield VA | (804) 739-9121An insurance policy is a contract between a policy holder and an insurance company. All policies are unilateral in that the policy holder pays the insurance company a premium.

The purpose of an auto insurance policy is to make one whole, or return the policy holder back to their original condition prior to a covered financial loss.  For example: you own a 2015 vehicle with actual cash value of $50,000 and the car was totaled by a covered peril.  The recovery amount is limited to the amount of the actual loss incurred, and not the actual cash value – or replacement cost less depreciation.

Breakdown Auto Insurance Policy Coverages

There are 6 primary components to your Auto Insurance policy and our licensed agents can help you determine the best coverages you need for your situation with a price that meets your budget.  For example: if you have 2 teenage drivers on your policy and own a $500,000 home – we would recommend enough coverage for a loss up to $500,000 so that your mortgage is covered in case of loss.  Virginia Auto Insurance Liability Insurance protects you, the insured/policy holder, against a claim made by another party, and covers the insured’s legal responsibility to body and property damage.  Bodily injury liability (BI) insurance covers you if you cause an accident in which someone else is injured. Your policy is designed to pay claims for each person injured in an accident, and limits the total paid per occurrence.

 

  • Property damage liability (PD) insurance covers you when you damage someone else’s property. For example, your property damage will pay out when you are at fault for an accident that causes damage to someone else’s car.

 

  • Uninsured/Underinsured motorist (UM/UIM) insurance covers your expenses when you are hit by a driver who does not carry adequate or does not have auto insurance. Our agents always recommend carrying uninsured/underinsured motorist insurance, so that you are not left with a financial loss because of someone else’s negligence to carry auto insurance.

 

  • Comprehensive insurance covers you in case your vehicle is damaged by an other than collision incident. The covered perils include hail, fire, theft, flood, earthquake, explosion, falling objects, and encounters with wildlife, such as deer 0r a Turkey and all glass breakage.  Comprehensive is optional coverage and you may choose your deductible amount.

 

  • Collision insurance pays for damage to your car if you run into another object. This coverage is not required by law, although your bank may require it, if you have a lien on your car.

 

  • Medical insurance coverage (Med Pay/MPC) acts as primary coverage for medical expenses you and your passengers incur if injured in a motor vehicle accident, regardless who’s at fault. Med pay can help you pay your bills as soon as they are incurred.

 

How Much is Virginia Auto Insurance?

Insurance & Financial Services | Virginia Auto Insurance Education | (804) 739-9121Insurance premiums are determined by the statistics of a large group of people who share the same risk. Many factors can affect your premium, and they all help determine how likely you are to have an accident.  Click here for more information from the Insurance Information Institute.  Some of the factors that will be used to determine the cost of insurance can include your driving record, how much you drive, your age, the type of car you drive, etc.

Insurance companies obtain the ratio of exposure by analyzing industry activities and driver statistics.  For example: if you live in an area where the average age of drivers is 45 years and they have decent driving records; the risk is slim, therefore calculating a lower premium.  It’s not that simple, but you get the idea.

Auto Insurance Policy Deductibles. A deductible on an auto insurance policy is the amount of money you agree to pay for damages before the insurance company provides payment towards the damage/loss.  Choosing a higher deductible means there is less risk of a payout for the insurance company, and so you may pay smaller premiums.  Insurance & Financial Services can help you make an informed decision on how to choose your deductible.
