Understanding the coverages of your policy can help you determine which coverages you need and the correct deductibles and limits.

Liability coverage protects you from damages or injuries you inflict on other people or property. This coverage protects you from legal claims by others. It does not cover your own vehicle damage or injuries.
Liability coverage has three limits: bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. Your policy might show liability limits of 25/50/25 that translate to $25,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, a total of $50,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and $25,000 of coverage for damaged propery.
Liability insurance covers things such as loss of income, court costs, repair costs for stationary objects and legal defense fees. How much coverage you buy is a decision to put some thought into, but buy higher limits if possible.
Your UM/UIM coverage provides protection from other drivers when they either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. It can pay for hospital bills for your injuries as well as your vehicle’s damage.

Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage provide coverage for immediate expenses like chiropractic care, doctor visits, dental work and hospital visits. The coverages can be used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance program or if you are not covered by health insurance. Medical payments and PIP cover not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants in addition to any family member struck as a pedestrian. PIP coverage is only offered in select states and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay
