Personal auto insurance covers damage that occurs during non-job-related driving. It pays for damage to your car and other vehicles involved in an accident. It also covers medical payments for injuries suffered in the accident.
Most veterinarians who carry car insurance for business vehicles also need personal auto coverage. Business auto insurance typically offers no coverage for personal driving. For example, if a veterinarian becomes involved in an accident while commuting to their practice, most business auto policies would not cover the damage.
All states require owners of passenger vehicles to carry personal auto insurance. However, state-required coverage and liability limits vary depending on where you live. Most veterinarians carry a combination of seven common types of personal auto insurance.
Most states require drivers to carry liability insurance. There are two kinds of coverage:
Medical Payments Coverage
Medical payments coverage pays for expenses related to injuries. It can cover the driver and passengers traveling in the insured vehicle. This coverage is mandatory in some states.
Personal Injury Protection (PIP)
PIP insurance, which is available only in certain states, covers medical expenses suffered in an accident. It also covers additional expenses, including lost wages, childcare, and other costs directly related to the accident.
Uninsured Motorist Coverage
Uninsured motorist coverage helps pay for your medical bills if an uninsured driver hits you. Some policies also pay for property damage. Some states require uninsured coverage, while others make it optional.
Collision coverage is optional in most states. It helps you pay for damage to your car if you’re in a crash with another car or if you hit an inanimate object.
Comprehensive insurance, optional in most states, covers expenses related to a car damaged by something other than a collision. It helps cover the repair of a vehicle damaged by fire, rain, hail, wind, and snowstorms. It also covers costs related to vehicle theft and vandalism.
Gap insurance, optional in most states, helps cover an outstanding auto loan if your vehicle is stolen or beyond repair. It covers the gap between the loan amount and the car’s depreciated value.
