*PIP or No-fault insurance

-No-fault insurance (sometimes known as personal injury protection or PIP coverage) can help pay for a policyholder's medical-related expenses after a car accident, regardless of fault. In some states, PIP can also pay for lost wages and other similar losses. In a typical no-fault claim, each insured party files a claim with their own insurer without waiting for a determination of fault.

-No-fault insurance aims to help injured drivers and passengers get medical care as swiftly as possible and does not apply to property damage.

-Each no-fault state has a monetary or verbal threshold that specifies a certain level of damage that, when surpassed, can allow an injured party to sue an at-fault driver. – Kentucky is a $1,000 threshold then the PIP claimant can sue the other party.

 
Other Non-Required Coverages
 

 

Uninsured/Under Insured Motorists – Pays you for bodily injury/property damage if hit by uninsured driver or when hit by driver with not enough insurance to cover your losses. Highly recommended considering estimates of 30%+ drivers are uninsured.

 

 

Med, Med Pay, Medical - Usually in excess of other medical coverage. Limits can vary from $1000-$5000 or more.

 

GAP - Pays for difference in value and loan amount if car is a total loss. It may also pay the difference due on the balance of a lease if the car is a total loss. 

 

Comp (Comprehensive) Damage to your car other than collision with out of pocket deductible typically $250, $500, $1000, etc.

(Will be required by bank or leasing company if there’s a car loan or lease)

 

Collison – Damage to your car from collision with an out of pocket deductible typically $250, $500, $1000 etc.

(Will be required by bank or leasing company if there’s a car loan or lease)

 

Towing – Usually pays up to certain amount, certain distance, paid out by insurance carrier or a reimbursement to you.

 

Rental Car – Pays only as a replacement use when your car can’t be used due to accident. Not vacation rentals. Usually pays up to a certain amount for a certain number of days. Car rented is usually of equal or lesser type to your car because the insurance company doesn’t want you to have a reason to want to keep a better car to drive at their expense.
