What does comprehensive insurance cover?
Does it provide coverage if I hit another vehicle, if my vehicle is damaged in a hit-and-run, or if an uninsured motorist hits me? If i'm injured, would it cover my medical expenses?

“Comprehensive insurance only covers physical damage to your vehicle that’s caused by a covered peril. This often includes vandalism, theft, hail damage, tree damage, or collisions with animals.
If you hit another vehicle and are at fault, your bodily injury liability would cover any of the other driver’s injuries. Your property damage liability would cover any damage to their vehicle.
If your vehicle is damaged in a hit-and-run, you may be able to submit a claim through your uninsured motorist coverage. You’d use the same coverage if an uninsured motorist hits you in an accident.
In any scenario where you’re injured and at fault, you’d need medical payment coverage or health insurance. “
