Collision can pay for claims like colliding with a tree, crashing into a ditch and crashing into a building. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so consider removing coverage from vehicles that are older. It’s also possible to increase the deductible to save money on collision insurance.
This coverage will cover damage or injury you incur to other’s property or people. This coverage protects you against claims from other people, and does not provide coverage for your own vehicle damage or injuries.
Liability coverage has 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 values of 25/50/25 that means you have a $25,000 limit per person for injuries, a total of $50,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and $25,000 of coverage for damaged propery. Occasionally you may see one number which is a combined single limit that pays claims from the same limit with no separate limits for injury or property damage.
Liability insurance covers claims like court costs, emergency aid, bail bonds, structural damage and medical services. How much liability should you purchase? That is a personal decision, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase higher limits if possible.

Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage kick in for short-term medical expenses like ambulance fees, prosthetic devices and rehabilitation expenses. They are often used to fill the gap from your health insurance policy or if you lack health insurance entirely. They cover you and your occupants and will also cover being hit by a car walking across the street. PIP coverage is not available in all states and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay
Comprehensive insurance pays to fix your vehicle from damage from a wide range of events other than collision. You need to pay your deductible first then your comprehensive coverage will pay.
Comprehensive coverage pays for things such as a broken windshield, damage from getting keyed, theft and damage from a tornado or hurricane. The most your car insurance company will pay is the cash value of the vehicle, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value consider removing comprehensive coverage.

A few companies do not provide the ability to get a quote online and usually these small insurance companies provide coverage only through local independent agents.
