“There are two parts that make up liability car insurance:
- bodily injury liability
- property damage liability
Both of these coverages protect other drivers when you’re at fault in an accident.
Bodily injury covers any physical injuries to other drivers. Property damage covers damage to their vehicle or property.
Without comprehensive insurance or collision insurance, your vehicle won’t be protected from damage.”
