A crash may not have been your fault. However that does not mean you will not be sued. The other party may claim you are at fault. With this coverage the insurer will defend you. In addition it will pay the claim up to your limits.

You should also have uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage. This covers you if the other party has low or no limits. If that other party caused the crash this coverage protects you if you are injured.

Medical payments coverage pays your medical bills without regard to fault. This is a good form of coverage to have. However it is not as important as the first two. Comprehensive coverage protects your automobile. If your vehicle is covered by a lien from a lender then the lender will require that you have this coverage. They want the vehicle insured. They are not so much concerned about you being insured personally.

Other types of coverage you may have is homeowners coverage. This protects your home from fire and other disasters. Also it protects you from liability claims. In addition, there is general liability coverage that may protect you in certain business pursuits.
