What is liability insurance in a car insurance policy?
An Auto insurance policy can have up to four different coverages. Liability car insurance is standard and known as part A. The other coverages such as comprehensive and collision are optional. Part A provides liability coverage that protects the insured from lawsuits arising from either the negligent operation or ownership of a covered automobile.
There are two coverages provided in Part A- Bodily Injury Liability (BIL) and Property Damage Liability (PDL). Bodily Injury Liability provides coverage for the bodily injury claims of people you negligently injure in an auto accident. Property Damage Liability in an auto insurance policy provides coverage for any third party property damage that the courts determine you are legally responsible to pay.
Part B in an auto insurance policy provides medical payments to the policyowner and any other passengers in the car involved in an accident.
Part C in an auto insurance policy in an auto insurance policy provides uninsured motorist and underinsured motorist protection for the policy owner. Both coverages in an auto insurance policy are designed to compensate the injured policyowner when the negligent driver has no liability insurance or an insufficient amount of liability insurance under his/her own policy. Part C usually covers only bodily injury losses, but property damage losses are included in some states.
Part D in an auto insurance policy provides for optional physical damage insurance. Most people with older cars or vehicles with low market values choose to do without Part D. Both collision and comprehensive are Part D coverages.
What is the difference between Comprehensive coverage and Collision coverage in an auto insurance policy?
Both collision and comprehensive coverages are Part D in a car insurance policy.
Collision in a car insurance policy is defined as losses you incur when your automobile collides with another car or object. For example, if you hit a car parked on a street, the damages to your car will be paid under your collision coverage.
Comprehensive in an auto insurance provides coverage for most other direct physical damage losses you could incur. For example, if a tree falls on your parked automobile, or if your car is damaged from a hailstorm. This would be covered under your comprehensive coverage. Comprehensive also includes the loss of your vehicle due to theft, fire, falling objects, and other covered perils in your auto insurance policy.
Note that both collision and comprehensive pay for physical damage to your car, however it is important to understand the difference between them. Also, the deductibles under the collision and comprehensive coverages are often different in amount.
Do I really need to buy car insurance for an older car that has a low market value?
Most states require drivers to have a minimum amount of liability car insurance since there are compulsory insurance laws designed to ensure that victims of automobile accidents are compensated for their losses caused by the negligent actions of others. Except for this minimum liability coverage, you do not have to purchase Part D comprehensive or collision coverage in your auto insurance policy for a car you consider is too old or not worth protecting for its loss or physical damage.
If I lend my car to a friend, Is he/she covered under my new york car insurance policy?

Am I covered under my new york car insurance policy when I rent a car?

This is not true anymore. In most cases, your personal automobile policy will provide coverage only when you are renting a car on vacation. Most insurance companies do not extend coverage when you are traveling on business. Some companies will extend coverage if you rent a car while your covered automobile is in the shop for repair work. Check with your insurance company for their policy on rental cars.
What should I do if I am involved in an auto accident?

Second, for most accidents in most states, the police should also be notified. Third, you should give the other driver (s) involved in the accident your name, address, telephone number, and the name of your insurance company and/or insurance agent. You also need to get this same information from the other driver (s). Fourth, at the first opportunity you should contact your insurance agent or insurance company, and notify them of your involvement in an accident.
Why do car insurance rates go up when you are involved in an accident or get a ticket?
This is based on studies done by actuaries and statisticians who have studied the claiming behavior of people involved in accidents and who receive tickets. Their study reveals that these people are more likely to have another accident in the next couple of years than those whose driving record has been incident free. Insurance companies use this information to charge a higher premium to people who are more likely to have accidents. Naturally they should reasonably be expected to pay higher premiums on their auto insurance.
