Coverage for medical expenses
Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP kick in for immediate expenses like dental work, ambulance fees, nursing services, chiropractic care and surgery.

Liability coverage pays for things such as structural damage, court costs, funeral expenses, repair costs for stationary objects and bail bonds. How much liability should you purchase? That is a personal decision, but buy as much as you can afford.
