Comprehensive insurance covers claims such as a tree branch falling on your vehicle, a broken windshield, hail damage, hitting a bird and fire damage. The maximum payout a insurance company will pay at claim time is the cash value of the vehicle, so if the vehicle’s value is low it’s probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.
Collision insurance covers damage to your RL resulting from a collision with a stationary object or other vehicle. You will need to pay your deductible and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.
Collision coverage pays for claims like crashing into a ditch, colliding with a tree, scraping a guard rail and backing into a parked car.

Some companies may use a combined limit which limits claims to one amount and claims can be made without the split limit restrictions.
Liability coverage pays for claims such as structural damage, medical services, bail bonds and repair bills for other people’s vehicles. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is your choice, but consider buying higher limits if possible.

Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP pay for bills for nursing services, prosthetic devices, hospital visits, surgery and X-ray expenses. They are often utilized in addition to your health insurance policy or if you do not have health coverage. Coverage applies to both the driver and occupants as well as getting struck while a pedestrian. Personal Injury Protection is not an option in every state but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage
