5 Types of Auto Insurance Coverage

1. Liability Coverageauto insurance

Liability coverage pays for repairs or medical treatments if you should injure someone or damage their property while behind the wheel. All registered vehicles in North Carolina are required to be insured with $30,000 in bodily injury liability coverage per injured person, to a max of $60,000 per accident, as well as $25,000 of property damage liability.

2. Personal Injury Protection

Personal injury protection (PIP) insurance pays for medical care and lost wages due to injuries sustained by you or a passenger. It pays out regardless of who was at fault.

3. Collision Coverage

Collision coverage pays to repair or replace your vehicle if it suffers on-the-road collision damage. It pays out even if you are at fault.

4. Comprehensive Coverage

Comprehensive insurance pays for non-collision damages caused by events like fire, flood, vandalism, or theft. It is important to maintain comprehensive coverage on a vehicle even it if is stored for the season and not being driven.

5. Uninsured & Underinsured Motorist Insurance

In states without no-fault insurance laws—like North Carolina—the at-fault driver's insurer pays for damages. However, if the at-fault driver has no insurance or has policy limits that won't cover the full amount of damages, you need uninsured or underinsured motorist insurance to make up the difference, so you're not paying out-of-pocket.
