Liability insurance will cover damages or injuries you inflict on people or other property. This insurance protects YOU against other people’s claims, and does not provide coverage for damage to your own property or vehicle.
Coverage consists of three different limits, bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. As an example, you may have limits of 100/300/100 that means you have a $100,000 limit per person for injuries, $300,000 for the entire accident, and a limit of $100,000 paid for damaged property. Another option is a combined limit which combines the three limits into one amount without having the split limit caps.
Liability can pay for things such as pain and suffering, emergency aid and structural damage. How much liability should you purchase? That is your choice, but you should buy as large an amount as possible.
Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage pay for bills such as dental work, rehabilitation expenses and doctor visits. They are used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance program or if you do not have health coverage. It covers all vehicle occupants as well as any family member struck as a pedestrian. Personal Injury Protection is not available in all states and may carry a deductible

Collision coverage protects against claims such as rolling your car, colliding with another moving vehicle, crashing into a building and backing into a parked car. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so consider removing coverage from older vehicles. It’s also possible to choose a higher deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.
This pays to fix your vehicle from damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You first must pay your deductible then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive insurance covers claims such as hail damage, damage from getting keyed and a broken windshield. The maximum amount your insurance company will pay is the market value of your vehicle, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value consider removing comprehensive coverage.
Drivers leave their current company for a number of reasons such as high rates after DUI convictions, extreme rates for teen drivers, unfair underwriting practices and policy non-renewal. No matter why you want to switch, choosing a new insurance company is actually quite simple.
