6 Does My Insurance Cover Me In Someone Else’s Vehicle?

Use examples and different scenarios to illustrate.
7 Purchasing a New vehicle- Is there any Coverage? If you trade your vehicle in you should have the same coverage as the vehicle you traded.Warning: if you are getting a brand new car you may want to increase your coverage e.g. purchasing comprehensive & collision coverageWhat if I don’t trade the vehicle in but instead purchase another vehicle- is there coverage for this new vehicle?There is coverage but look at your policy as it may not be enough.Call your insurance agent before you purchase the automobile!
8 You Do the math What would your auto insurance policy pay? You have an auto policy with minimum state required limits 15/30/5While driving your friend to school you swerve to avoid a pothole. You hit the car in the next lane causing it to swerve off the road and hit a fence. There is a mother and small child in the vehicle.Hint: 15/30/5 is 15,000 per person for bodily injury, 30,000 per accident for bodily injury, and $5000 for property damage.Injuries to your best friend $3,000Injuries to the small child $10,000Injuries to the mother $25,000Damage to the other vehicle $15,000Damage to the fence $2000What would your auto insurance policy pay?
9 Medical Payments Medical Payments Cover medical expenses to you and your passengers.Also you are covered if you are passenger in another vehicle or if you are hit by a vehicle when you are a pedestrian.Cover pays and doesn’t care who is at fault for the accident.It even covers if you get hurt getting in or out of the vehicle.Fully discuss this topic. Use examples and different scenarios to illustrate.
10 Uninsured MotoristUninsured MotoristPays your damages if hit by someone who doesn’t have insurance.Also pays if you are hit by a hit-and-run driver.It even covers you if you are struck as a pedestrian and the vehicle does not have insurance.Most important condition for coverage to apply is that the other person must be at fault!Limits are usually same as liability limits. Important to have both higher liability limits and higher uninsured motorist limits.Explain each of these bulleted items in detail with real life examples, maybe a claim you have dealt with at your job. Explain the benefits and downfalls of each type of coverage.
11 Am I Covered or Not?Think of different scenarios that could happen to your vehicle and the consequences afterwards. Discuss as a group- are they covered or not??Example: Your car gets hit by a deer. The car is totaled. You need to tow the old vehicle, get a rental vehicle and buy a new one.As students give you examples write them on the board to later explain if these perils are covered or not covered. After about 5 to 7 examples move on to examining whether it is covered or not covered. Make sure you discuss the difference between having Liability and Physical Damage Insurance and how these two affect how the peril is covered by the insurance company.

13 Does my insurance cover a rental car after a car accident? YES but…If you have purchased physical damage coverage- collision coverage- then you also have “loss of use” coverage to help pay for a rental car after a covered accident but it may not cover all of your expenses- call your insurance agent to verify coverage.
