Split limit liability has three limits of coverage: 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 50/100/50 that translate to a limit of $50,000 per injured person, a total of $100,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and $50,000 of coverage for damaged propery.
Liability coverage pays for things like medical services, court costs and funeral expenses. How much liability coverage do you need? That is up to you, but consider buying as high a limit as you can afford.
Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP reimburse you for short-term medical expenses for things like EMT expenses, ambulance fees, doctor visits and nursing services. They are used in conjunction with a health insurance program or if you are not covered by health insurance.

Personal Injury Protection is not an option in every state but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage
Comprehensive insurance coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage that is not covered by collision coverage. You first have to pay a deductible then your comprehensive coverage will pay.
Comprehensive can pay for things such as hail damage, rock chips in glass, hitting a deer and damage from getting keyed.

Collision coverage pays for damage to your GLE-Class resulting from colliding with an object or car. You first must pay a deductible and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.
Collision coverage pays for things such as colliding with a tree, crashing into a building, hitting a parking meter, damaging your car on a curb and rolling your car. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so you might think about dropping it from lower value vehicles. It’s also possible to choose a higher deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.
