Collision Insurance

Collision insurance is auto coverage that reimburses the insured for damage sustained to their personal automobile, due to the fault of the insured driver. This type of insurance is often added as an extension of a basic policy.

How it Works

As the name implies, Collision insurance repays the insured for damage from an actual collision. It does not cover damage due to theft or vandalism. It also does not cover damage that is paid from another driver's policy, if the other driver was at fault.

Collision coverage is very important for protecting your vehicle against the financial loss that comes with physical damage to your vehicle. It's not hard to get into accident. When an accident happens, someone is always at fault, and that could be you. Collision insurance will cover damage from a collision with another vehicle, tree, pole, guardrail and most other possible roadway hazards.


  • Collision insurance can be bought only in conjunction with liability and comprehensive coverage.
  • Collision insurance repairs damage when two vehicles in drive or reverse collide with each other.
  • Collision insurance will cove damage to your vehicle if you hit ice and slide into an inanimate object.
  • Collision covers pothole damage.
  • Collision coverage can be expensive, but people can save on premiums by choosing a $500 or higher deductible.
