When buying adequate coverage, there isn’t really a “best” method to buy coverage. Every insured’s situation is different.

Understanding the coverages of your insurance policy can help you determine the right coverages for your vehicles. Policy terminology can be confusing and reading a policy is terribly boring.
Liability insurance can cover damage or injury you incur to other’s property or people. This coverage protects you against other people’s claims. It does not cover damage sustained by your vehicle in an accident.
Liability coverage has three limits: per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. As an example, you may have limits of 100/300/100 that means you have $100,000 bodily injury coverage, a per accident bodily injury limit of $300,000, and property damage coverage for $100,000.
Liability coverage pays for claims like medical expenses, legal defense fees, emergency aid and repair bills for other people’s vehicles. How much liability should you purchase? That is up to you, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase as much as you can afford.
Medical expense insurance
Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP pay for expenses such as nursing services, funeral costs, ambulance fees, X-ray expenses and EMT expenses. They are utilized in addition to your health insurance policy or if you do not have health coverage. It covers all vehicle occupants as well as getting struck while a pedestrian. Personal Injury Protection is not an option in every state but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage
This pays to fix your vehicle from damage caused by collision with a stationary object or other vehicle. You have to pay a deductible and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.
Collision coverage pays for things like sustaining damage from a pot hole, scraping a guard rail, damaging your car on a curb and driving through your garage door. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so you might think about dropping it from vehicles that are 8 years or older. Another option is to raise the deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.
Comprehensive (Other than Collision)
This coverage pays for damage that is not covered by collision coverage. You need to pay your deductible first then your comprehensive coverage will pay.
Comprehensive can pay for claims such as theft, rock chips in glass and vandalism. The maximum amount you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the actual cash value, so if the vehicle is not worth much consider removing comprehensive coverage.
Protection from uninsured/underinsured drivers
This provides protection when the “other guys” do not carry enough liability coverage. Covered losses include medical payments for you and your occupants as well as damage to your Mercedes-Benz SL-Class.
Since many drivers carry very low liability coverage limits, their limits can quickly be used up. So UM/UIM coverage is very important.
