Collision insurance covers claims like rolling your car, driving through your garage door, hitting a mailbox and hitting a parking meter.

You can also raise the deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.
Liability insurance can cover injuries or damage you cause to other people or property in an accident. This insurance protects YOU against claims from other people, and doesn’t cover your own vehicle damage or injuries.
It consists of three limits, bodily injury for each person injured, bodily injury for the entire accident and a property damage limit. As an example, you may have limits of 100/300/100 that translate to $100,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, a per accident bodily injury limit of $300,000, and property damage coverage for $100,000. Another option is a combined limit which combines the three limits into one amount with no separate limits for injury or property damage.
Liability coverage pays for claims such as legal defense fees, funeral expenses, loss of income, pain and suffering and medical services. How much coverage you buy is a personal decision, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase as high a limit as you can afford.

Personal Injury Protection is not available in all states but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage
