Summary of Coverages
Your auto insurance policy will contain several types of coverage that you will add or decline. It is important for you to have at minimum a basic understanding of each form of coverage. This will help you in deciding what insurance coverage best suits your needs.
Collision insurance is a coverage that helps pay for repair or replacement of your car if it is damaged in an accident with another vehicle or object, such as a tree or fence. If your car is financed through a bank, or you are leasing your car, collision coverage is typically required by the lender.
Comprehensive is a coverage that helps pay for the repair or replacement of your vehicle if it is stolen or damaged in an incident other than a collision. Comprehensive coverage typically covers damage from falling objects, like trees, rocks or hail, and from fire and vandalism. If you are financing your vehicle, the lender may require this coverage.
Property damage liability coverage helps pay for the repair of damage to someone else’s vehicle or property due to an accident you caused, up to the policy limits. Some minimum amount of property damage liability coverage is typically required with minimums amounts set by each state.
Bodily injury liability is auto insurance coverage that helps you pay for another person’s injuries in an accident that you are found to be at fault. This is one of two types of required auto liability insurance, the other, property damage.

An uninsured motorist is someone without auto insurance. Uninsured motorist coverage is part of a car insurance policy that helps pay for your medical bills or car repairs if you’re hit by a driver who doesn’t have car insurance.
Underinsured motorist coverage is a protection that helps pay for your expenses if you’re hit by an underinsured driver. This coverage is important in the event that their liability limits aren’t enough to cover your bills after an accident.
