Liability auto insurance
This can cover injuries or damage you cause to other people or property in an accident. This coverage protects you against claims from other people, and does not provide coverage for damage to your own property or vehicle.
Coverage consists of three different limits, bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. You might see values of 100/300/100 that translate to a limit of $100,000 per injured person, a total of $300,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and a limit of $100,000 paid for damaged property.
Liability insurance covers claims such as legal defense fees, bail bonds, attorney fees, medical services and funeral expenses. How much coverage you buy is a personal decision, but buy as large an amount as possible.
Collision coverage protection
Collision coverage pays for damage to your MDX resulting from a collision with a stationary object or other vehicle. You will need to pay your deductible and then insurance will cover the remainder.
Collision coverage pays for things such as colliding with a tree, hitting a parking meter and crashing into a building. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so consider removing coverage from older vehicles. Drivers also have the option to raise the deductible to save money on collision insurance.
Uninsured and underinsured coverage
Your UM/UIM coverage gives you protection when the “other guys” do not carry enough liability coverage. It can pay for injuries sustained by your vehicle’s occupants and damage to your 2011 Acura MDX.
Because many people have only the minimum liability required by law, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages should not be overlooked.

They are often utilized in addition to your health insurance policy or if there is no health insurance coverage. It covers all vehicle occupants as well as any family member struck as a pedestrian.
