Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage protects you and your vehicle’s occupants from other drivers when they either have no liability insurance or not enough. Covered claims include injuries to you and your family and also any damage incurred to your Chrysler Imperial.
Because many people carry very low liability coverage limits, it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage should not be overlooked.
This coverage will pay to fix damage to your Imperial from colliding with an object or car. You first must pay a deductible then your collision coverage will kick in.
Collision insurance covers things such as sideswiping another vehicle, damaging your car on a curb, hitting a parking meter, colliding with another moving vehicle and sustaining damage from a pot hole.

Liability insurance covers claims like court costs, pain and suffering and bail bonds. How much liability should you purchase? That is a personal decision, but buy higher limits if possible.
