What is Full Coverage?
Most people think “full coverage” is car insurance with ALL the bells whistles. This is not the case though. Full coverage includes state required coverages as well as comprehensive and collision coverage.
Let us break that down a bit more for you….
Arizona requires liability insurance at limits of:
$25,000 per person in bodily injury
$50,000 maximum per accident in bodily injury
$15,000 in property damage
Full coverage is the above mentioned liability PLUS comprehensive and collision coverage.
Full coverage does not include uninsured/underinsured coverage, medical payments, roadside assistance, or rental reimbursement. Those are ADDITIONAL coverages you may add.

Full Coverage Car Insurance AZ: Coverages Explained
Now that you know what full coverage actually includes lets explain each coverage a little bit more for you. If you have any questions regarding any of these coverages, please give us a call. One of our agents would be glad to answer any questions you may have regarding Arizona Auto Insurance.
Liability: covers you from paying out of pocket when you are found at fault in an accident. It pays for injuries and property damage to other up to the limits on your policy.
One thing to note is that Arizona is a comparative fault state. Meaning that if you are both found at fault or negligent in the cause of the accident, your insurance companies will have to split the cost. For example: you are found 60% at fault and another driver is 40% at fault or negligent, your insurance companies will pay out based on that percentage.
Comprehensive: pays for damage to your vehicle caused by things out side of your control that are not the result of an accident with another driver. Things such as hail damage, theft, vandalism, or even hitting a animal would be covered by this coverage.
Collision: also pays for damage to your vehicle when you are found at fault. Whether you are involved in accident with another vehicle, hit a guardrail or curb, or even a tree, this coverage would pay for the damages to your vehicle as long as it is a covered peril.
Comprehensive & Collision coverages both carry a deductible. The higher the deductible the lower the cost will be for your Full Coverage car insurance AZ.
A deductible is the amount you are responsible for as the insured to pay before the insurance company will pay. For example: If you have a $1000 deductible and hit a deer and that causes $5000 worth of damage to your vehicle. Insurance is going to pay $4000 for those damages. The other $1000 is your responsibility.
Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist: these coverages are optional in the state of Arizona and are NOT included in a full coverage auto policy.
Uninsured motorist coverage offers protection up to you liability limits if added to your policy. If you are involved in an accident that was NOT your fault and the other driver does NOT have insurance this is when this coverage goes into effect.
Underinsured Motorist is great for those that carry higher than the state required liability limits. This coverage will go into effect if you are found not at fault in an accident and the at fault driver has lower liability limits than you do.
An example of this would be: You have $100,000 per person in bodily injury, $300,000 per accident in bodily injury, and $100,000 in property damage. The other driver only have the state required limit. Underinsured motorist could go into effect and offer you coverage up to 100/300/100.
It is worth noting that uninsured/underinsured cannot be set at limits above your liability limits, however, if you do carry higher than the state minimum liability you will be able to select limits between the minimum and your current liability selections.
Medical Payments: this is another optional coverage you may purchase on top of your full coverage car insurance AZ. Medical payments pay out up to a set limit for you and the passengers in your vehicle for medical expenses regardless of who was at fault in the accident.
Roadside Assistance: this coverage varies from carrier to carrier. However, it is an additional coverage that typically helps cover things such as lock outs, help with a flat tire, towing, and running out of gas. We highly recommend you ask your agent about this additional coverage to know for certain what it does and does NOT cover based on your carrier.
Rental Reimbursement: the final additional coverage on top of full coverage car insurance AZ is rental reimbursement. This offers a set dollar amount per day up to 30 days for a rental vehicle while your car is being repaired due to a covered loss. This DOES NOT allow you to rent a car to go out of town, or for another reason other than a rental vehicle while your vehicle is being repaired after a claim or accident.
