Collision insurance covers damage to your S-15 Jimmy caused by collision with an object or car. A deductible applies then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.
Collision can pay for claims like rolling your car, hitting a mailbox and crashing into a building. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from lower value vehicles. It’s also possible to increase the deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.
Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance pay for immediate expenses for things like doctor visits, pain medications, rehabilitation expenses, EMT expenses and nursing services.

Your UM/UIM coverage gives you protection from other motorists when they do not carry enough liability coverage. Covered losses include injuries to you and your family as well as damage to your GMC S-15 Jimmy.
Due to the fact that many drivers only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, their limits can quickly be used up. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is a good idea.
Liability insurance provides protection from injuries or damage you cause to other’s property or people by causing an accident. This coverage protects you from legal claims by others, and does not provide coverage for damage sustained by your vehicle in an accident.
Split limit liability has three limits of coverage: per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. You might see limits of 100/300/100 which means a $100,000 limit per person for injuries, a limit of $300,000 in injury protection per accident, and property damage coverage for $100,000.
Liability coverage pays for claims such as emergency aid, repair bills for other people’s vehicles, attorney fees, loss of income and medical services. How much liability should you purchase? That is up to you, but buy higher limits if possible.
Comprehensive insurance will pay to fix damage caused by mother nature, theft, vandalism and other events. A deductible will apply and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.
Comprehensive insurance covers things such as damage from flooding, hitting a deer, fire damage, hail damage and vandalism. The most your insurance company will pay is the actual cash value, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value consider dropping full coverage.
