What is Third Party Liability coverage?
Provides coverage if you have an at-fault accident that:
- damages someone else’s property (e.g., a fence, house or hydro pole), or
- injures or kills someone
By law, you must have at least $200,0001 in third party liability coverage, but this may not be enough to protect you in the event of a loss. For your own peace of mind, we recommend $1 million or $2 million. These are the standard limits.
What is Comprehensive coverage?
Required if your vehicle is leased or purchased with financing
Protects you against loss or damage caused to your vehicle in situations other than collisions, such as:
- Cracked or broken windows
- Earthquakes, floods, windstorms, etc.
- Flying or falling objects
- Riots or civil disturbances
Without this coverage, you’d have to pay for expenses like windshield repairs or the cost of replacing your vehicle if it is stolen or destroyed in a fire.
What is Accident Benefits coverage?
If you are injured or killed in a car accident, you’ll be covered for the following regardless of who is responsible for the accident. It provides compensation for:
- Medical payments
- Death, funeral and total disability
Note: It also includes Uninsured Motorist coverage, which applies if you are injured or killed by an uninsured or unidentified driver. It also provides coverage for damages caused to your vehicle by an identified uninsured driver.
What is Uninsured Automobile coverage?
Protects you in the event of an accident caused by an uninsured or unidentified driver. For example:
- If you are injured or killed because of an uninsured or hit-and-run driver.
What is Family Protection coverage?
Provides additional protection for everyone on your policy in the event of injury or death caused by an uninsured or underinsured motorist.
- This protection covers the difference between the Family Protection limit on your policy, and the liability insurance limits of the other at-fault driver
Example: You were involved in an automobile accident that caused $800,000 in damage. The other driver, responsible for the accident, was covered up to $500,000. Fortunately, you had added $1,000,000 in Family Protection coverage to your policy, which covered the $300,000 difference between the damage and the at-fault driver’s coverage.
