This type of auto insurance coverage pays for your medical expenses, lost
wages, and other damages when you or your passengers are injured in an
accident caused by a driver who has insufficient auto or motorcycle
insurance coverage. The auto insurance coverage typically pays the
difference between the coverage limit you select and the other driver's bodily
injury coverage limit. This is not a required auto insurance coverage in
Maryland.

Protects you if your auto is damaged in an accident caused by a driver who
has insufficient auto insurance coverage. This coverage pays the difference
between the coverage limit you select and the other driver's property

Having a teenager included on your auto insurance policy will always cost
substantially more, but there are ways to reduce the premium increase.
The best cars for teen drivers are slower, bigger cars with a lot of safety features.
Teenager's are more prone to accidents, especially ones caused by speeding. A
disproportionate number of teenage car accidents involve only one vehicle.
Make sure your teen drives safely. One speeding ticket or fender-bender can send
your teenager's auto insurance rates sky high. Require that they take a drivers
education class at their high school or local DMV.
Good student teen driver insurance rates can save up to 25% on your teenager's
auto insurance if a "B" average is maintained.
Assuming your teen keeps a good driving record, the cost of insuring them will
decrease as they get older.
Auto Insurance endorsements are policy extras for services such as towing insurance,
auto glass insurance, daily rental insurance, and emergency roadside insurance.
These auto insurance policies are not required by any state, but many drivers
choose these services for the added security and convenience they provide.
Maryland Rental Car Insurance
Covers the cost of a rental car while your insured car is being repaired because
of a covered event.
Maryland Emergency Roadside Insurance
Covers repairs done at the location of your automobile problem (roadside). This
policy is often combined with auto towing coverage and called Roadside Emergency
Towing Insurance. Changing a flat tire on the roadside may also be covered, but you
will need to pay for repairs received at the garage or other repair location.
Maryland Auto Glass Insurance
Offers a lower deductible or no deductible for when repairing any broken window
on your car is required.
Maryland Auto Towing Insurance
Covers costs involved for towing your car anytime you need it.
What information is listed in the actual auto insurance policy that you are given by
the insurance agent? Learn about the different important sections in every auto
insurance policy below.
Declarations
Usually listed first in your auto insurance policy and unlike the remainder of your
policy, it will have been prepared especially for you. It will list the specific auto
insurance coverages and amounts that you've chosen.
year, make,and model of your car
VIN - vehicle identification number
date the policy is effective
policy's coverage types and limits
policy's cost - premium
name of the insured (you or you and your spouse)
Insuring Agreement
Lists exactly what the insurance company promises to provide in return for the
payment of your auto insurance premium. The type and amounts of each coverage
you've purchased is described in detail and also outlines exactly who is covered
under each provision.
Exclusions
The insurance policy exclusions section is a list of all possible circumstances that
would free the insurance company from the responsibility of paying a claim.
Example: most auto insurance contain an exclusion that exempts the
insurance company from having to pay in the case of intentionally caused
damage or injury.
Conditions
Lists the duties and responsibilities of the insured (You) in the event of a claim
situation. Will include guidelines for contacting the insurance company, obtaining
a police report, and filing a claim. Information on auto insurance policy
cancellation will be outlined here, too.
If you have an older car, you can lower your Maryland auto insurance premium by
reducing or dropping your collision or comprehensive coverages. Cars being sold
today are much more costly to repair, just ask your auto mechanic the next time
you see him. If you damage your older car in a car accident, it's likely that your
repair costs will be lower than those for a newer car with similar damage. The
amount of Maryland auto insurance premium that goes toward that coverage
option is only slightly reduced for older cars than for newer ones. You can usually
save some premium by taking on a small amount of risk.
Lower Auto Insurance Premium - Increase Your Deductibles
Auto insurance premiums are based on the amount of coverage you have, and
the deductible you must pay before an insurance claim is paid. Auto insurance
deductibles usually range between $100 and $1,000. A lower deductible raises
the premium amount, and a higher deductible will lower your monthly Maryland
auto insurance premium.

You should consider setting your deductible at an amount that you are
comfortable with. Determine the amount that you could afford to spend on your
car in any given month if you had an accident. The amount that won't prevent
you from paying all your bills is a good amount for an auto insurance deductible.

Remember though, if you have an car accident, the deductible you've chosen
must be paid before the insurance company will pay for your repairs, and there
can be hidden costs in a car accident. For example, your Maryland auto
insurance policy may not pay the cost of a rental car while your car is being
repaired.
Low-Mileage Discounts
The more miles you drive, the greater the chances of being involved in an
accident. Most auto insurance companies offer discounts to drivers who
keep the number of miles they drive each year under 10,000 to 12,000 miles.
Moving Violations
Most automobile insurance companies provide discounts to drivers who have
not had a moving violation in the past 3 years. Insurance companies consider
speeding tickets and accidents the most serious moving violations which have
an impact on your Maryland auto insurance premiums.

Review your driving record prior to shopping for Maryland auto insurance. You
may want to consider holding off on buying new auto insurance if you have a
moving violation which can be removed from your records within a short period
of time.
Reduce Auto Insurance Premium - Fewer Accidents
Auto insurance companies want to insure the best drivers. Safer drivers have
fewer accidents, fewer speeding tickets, and make fewer claims. Every time
you are involved in an auto accident or a moving violation, the state where you
are licensed assesses points to your driving record. Auto insurance
companies limit their risk exposure by charging higher premiums to drivers
who have more points on their driving records. Convictions of driving under
the influence of drugs or alcohol is often viewed as much more serious than a
speeding ticket or a car accident by insurance carriers.

If you think that you apply for good driver rates, be sure to ask companies
when you are shopping for auto insurance what their "good driver" discounts
are. Compare that price to the good driver rates of other companies, to help
determine what the best Maryland auto insurance policy is for you and your
family.
Reduce Auto Insurance Premium - Anti-Lock Brakes
Anti-lock braking systems help prevent car accidents by shortening stopping
distances on wet and dry surfaces. Most car brakes without anti-locking
mechanisms will lock if the driver slams the brake pedal, which can cause
hydroplaning in wet conditions or skidding on dry surfaces. The proper way to
avoid this is to pump the brakes. People are limited in the speed with which
they can pump a brake pedal, so anti-lock brakes do the pumping for you and
improve safety.

Auto insurance companies want to reduce the chance that their policy holders
will have a car accident. The auto insurance discounts offered are another
incentive to buy cars equipped with anti-locking brakes.
Multiple Insurance Policy Discount
Many auto insurance companies will offer lower premiums if you have multiple
insurance policies with the same company, or multiple vehicles insured under
the same policy. This works differently depending on which specific insurance
company you are dealing with.

Insurance companies will offer discounts if you purchase a homeowners
insurance policy or an umbrella insurance policy to go along with your Maryland
auto insurance policy.

Honesty Is The Best Policy
This holds true for providing accurate information to your Maryland auto insurance
carrier. Don't think that little white lie won't come back to harm you with a denied
claim, a canceled policy or legal troubles.
Most Maryland auto insurance policies allow for cancellation or non-renewal if you
intentionally fail to disclose information necessary to correctly underwrite and rate an
auto insurance application. You can find that information typically in the policy info
mailed to you that you probably don't read completely.
A few most often falsehoods given by people to reduce their auto insurance rates,
enhance their medical claim, or are told to insurance agents after an accident.
I only drive a couple of miles to and from work.
Your claim can be denied if the insurance company determines that you drive a
significantly longer commute for work each weekday than what they were told. This
could make you responsible for all damages in an auto accident.
I'm the only one that drives my car regularly.
If a person not listed on your Maryland auto insurance policy drives your car on a regular
basis and gets into an accident, your rates can go up. Depending on the circumstances of
that accident, this falsehood can make it appropriate for the insurance carrier to not pay
your auto insurance claim. Also, auto insurance coverage rates are based on where you
live and park the car or truck being insured. Inaccurate information given to the insurance
carrier to get cheaper rates can get your Maryland auto insurance policy cancelled.
I put on my turn signal before I changed lanes.
I wasn't speeding. / I stopped completely at the stop sign.
Witnesses to your car accident who give a different story of the events than you can
lead your insurance carrier to partially or completely charge you with fault for the
accident. Honesty is the best policy!
I need massage therapy for injuries related to my accident.
If a massage therapist isn't clearly related to your auto insurance claim, your medical
expense can be denied and can prompt a fraud investigation. Insurance carriers have
medical experts that do nothing else but varify or not varify such medical claims.
Other falsehoods such as attempting to pass off old damage as new damage or failing
to mention the use of your car for business purposes, can lead an insurance company
to rejecting your claim and cancelling your Maryland auto insurance policy.
