Physical Damage Coverage

General Coverages

Collision provides coverage in the event of a loss or damage to an insured vehicle caused by a collision or overturn. Collision coverage must be written with Comprehensive or Fire and Theft with CAC.

 

Comprehensive provides coverage in the event of a loss or damage to an insured vehicle caused by incidents other than a collision. This includes damages due to fire, theft, vandalism, windstorm, or contact with an animal.

 

Fire and Theft with Combined Additional Coverages: provides coverage in the event of a loss or damage to an insured vehicle caused by a specific occurrence. The damage or loss must be caused by the following: fire, lightning or explosion; theft; windstorms or hail; earthquakes; flood or rising waters; vandalism; while being transported by a third party; or by a collision with an animal.

 

Comprehensive Only coverage is designed for seasonal businesses that do not operate year-round and store their vehicles for prolonged periods. Coverage protects vehicles in the event of damages due to fire, theft, vandalism, windstorm, or contact with an animal. Comprehensive Only coverage applies to all vehicles on a policy

 

PERSONAL INJURY PROTECTION COVERAGE (PIP) PIP coverage provides payments for appropriate benefits if an insured, or other persons covered under this policy is injured in an accident. PIP has three parts—(1) medical benefits: coverage for the cost of treatment the insured receives from hospitals, doctors, and other medical providers; (2) disability benefits: reimbursement for certain expenses that result from injuries, such as lost wages or any reasonable expenses incurred in obtaining services from others during a period of disability; and (3) death benefits: benefits payable if an insured dies because of bodily injury sustained in an accident.
