Insurance coverages you might see in your package
For: At-fault repairs & medical care
Bodily Injury and Property Damage Liability coverage protects you if you cause an accident; we pay for the other driver’s medical bills (passengers’ bills, too) and any damage. We even cover legal fees if you’re sued (rare, but it happens).
Uninsured/Underinsured Bodily Injury
For: Not-at-fault medical care
Uninsured/Underinsured Bodily Injury coverage protects you if you’re in an accident caused by a driver who either has no insurance or just not enough insurance. We pay for damages you incur, including medical expenses and lost wages.
For: Any post-accident medical care
This protects you if you’re in an accident; we pay for any medical care you and your passengers receive. We also cover medical care if you get hit by a car while you’re walking or riding a bicycle. In some states, you might also get Personal Injury Protection—it protects you the same way.
For: Any post-accident repairs
Collision coverage protects you if you get hit by, or hit, another vehicle; we pay for your car repairs. You choose a deductible and pay this portion to the repair shop after an accident, and we pay the rest of the bill.
For: Any other repairs
Comprehensive coverage protects you if your car is damaged by something other than a collision, such as fire, vandalism, hail or flood; we pay for repairs (after you pay the deductible). We also cover damage caused by hitting an animal and theft (if your car gets stolen).
Uninsured Motorist Property Damage
For: Unpaid not-at-fault damage
Uninsured Motorist Property Damage coverage protects you if you’re in an accident caused by a driver who doesn’t have insurance; we pay to repair damage to your vehicle (after you pay the deductible).
Roadside Assistance coverage protects you if your car breaks down due to mechanical or electrical issues like a dead battery, a flat tire, or a lock-out, or if you run out of gas. We pay for towing services or roadside help.
For: Your car loan
Loan/Lease Payoff coverage, or gap insurance, protects you if your car is ever declared a total loss; we pay up to 25 percent over the actual cash value towards the amount you owe the lender.
For: Vet bills
This helps you get care for your dog or cat if it’s hurt in an accident; we pay for vet bills. It’s included with your Collision coverage.
For: A car rental
This protects you if your car is being repaired as part of a Comprehensive or Collision claim; we pay for up to 30 days of a rental.
CUSTOM PARTS & EQUIPMENT VALUE
This protects you if items you add to your car get damaged; we pay to repair or replace them. We protect accessories like stereos and TV equipment, navigation systems, phones, custom grilles and spoilers, and custom paint.
