Accidents, glass damage, lawsuits, hail, and more—we have affordable coverage options to protect against just about anything.
Liability (bodily injury and property damage)
Covers damages you cause to others
If you're at fault in an auto accident, liability covers damages you cause. That could mean damage to other vehicles, property (mailbox, street sign, house, etc.), or even other drivers'/passengers' injuries. Plus, liability covers you if someone sues you over an accident.
Example: You rear-end another car, it's damaged, the other driver is severely injured, and sues you. We'll pay for the other driver's car repairs, injuries, and your costs from the lawsuit (up to the amounts you select). There's no deductible for liability.
Comprehensive and collision
Covers damage to your car
These are two separate auto insurance coverages. Comprehensive covers incidents out of your control: theft, vandalism, hitting an animal, fire, acts of nature, and glass damage. Collision covers car accidents.
Example (Comprehensive): You park your car outside during a major hailstorm, and it's totaled. If you have comprehensive, we'll pay out for the full value of your car (minus your deductible amount). Example (Collision): You back out of your garage, hit your basketball hoop, and cause $2,000 worth of damage to your vehicle. If you have collision, we'll then pay for your repairs (minus your deductible amount).
Covers your injuries and damages
These can be two separate coverages: One that covers your injuries (bodily injury) and another that covers your vehicle's damages (property damage). Both kick in if a driver hits you and doesn't have insurance or enough to pay for your losses.
Example: Another driver runs a red light and hits you. They're at fault and don't have insurance. If they can't or refuse to pay for your damages, you can instead file a claim with us. We'll then pay for your repairs.
Covers your injuries
Pays for medical costs if you, your passengers, or your family members are injured in a car accident (no matter who is driving). Medical payments coverage can be beneficial even if you have health insurance, as there is no deductible you have to meet before we pay out.
Example: Your newly licensed 16-year-old neighbor is driving your child to school, and they're in an accident. Your child is injured and has a $1,000 medical bill. Instead of filing a claim with your health insurer, you can file with us and we'll simply pay the bill (up to your limit). No deductible applies.
