AAA Coverage

Liability Coverage

Liability Coverage pays damages due to bodily injury and property damages to others for which you are responsible. If you’re sued, it also pays your defense and court costs. Medical expenses, pain and suffering, and lost wages are some examples of what Liability Bodily Injury may cover. Liability Property Damage covers damage to property and loss of its use. Every state sets a minimum coverage level. Selecting more than the minimum coverage would increase your cost now but potentially give you more protection in case of an accident.

Since it’s impossible to know the most you’d have to pay if you were to cause an accident that resulted in bodily injury or property damage, be sure to take some time and consider whether you’d be able to afford any damages that exceed your insurance coverage. The higher your limits, the more likely it is that we’ll be able to pay all of the damages for you. Limits higher than the state minimum might be the best choice for you.

Medical Payments Coverage

Medical Payments coverage applies no matter who is at fault and covers the cost of reasonable and necessary medical care provided to you as a result of a car accident.

The coverage is not required by most states, but it provides great coverage at an affordable price. The cost will correspond to the limits you select. There are no deductibles or copays, so this coverage can pay from the first dollar of incurred, covered expenses.

Collision Coverage

Collision Coverage will pay for damage to a covered vehicle caused by the following, subject to a deductible:

Collision with another vehicle
Collision with an object
A vehicle rollover

Higher deductibles lower your premium but increase the amount you’ll have to pay out of your own pocket at the time of a loss. Ask yourself how much you’re willing to pay when a loss occurs to save money on premiums.

Comprehensive Coverage

This coverage helps pay for loss of or damage to an insured vehicle, not caused by a collision or vehicle rollover. Typically, that’s coverage for the following, and is subject to a deductible.

Fire
Wind
Hail
Flood
Vandalism
Theft
Hitting an animal

Higher deductibles lower your premium but increase the amount you’ll have to pay out of your own pocket in case of a loss. Ask yourself how much you’re willing to pay when a loss occurs to save money on premiums.

Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Coverage

Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage pays for damages that you are legally entitled to recover for your bodily injury. Medical expenses, pain and suffering, and lost wages are some examples of bodily injury damages.

In general, this coverage provides what you would have received from the other person’s insurance company if that person had insurance. This coverage may also protect you if the person who caused the damage does not have enough insurance.

Extended Transportation Expense

Commonly referred to as Rental Reimbursement. Your car is in the shop after a covered loss. Rental Reimbursement pays the cost of renting a replacement vehicle so you don’t have to interrupt your daily routine. Daily allowances or limits vary.
