This is the type of insurance required by state law. It pays damages to other drivers who are injured or suffer property damage as a result of your actions, but it won’t typically pay for damages to your vehicle or your medical expenses if you’re injured in an accident.
This type of insurance protects you against damages from accidents in which a driver without sufficient insurance was at fault. It typically pays for property damage and bodily injury damages up to specific maximum amounts.
Collision coverage insures your vehicle against property damage in almost any collision with another vehicle or object, essentially paying for your own property damages.
Comprehensive coverage insures your vehicle against risks unrelated to driving. Most comprehensive policies cover damage caused by hail, wind, vandalism, theft of items inside your car, and similar risks.
