What Is “Full Coverage”?

Don’t be fooled by the phrase “full coverage” – it’s not an actual type of insurance policy. Rather, it refers to an insurance policy that includes comprehensive, collision, uninsured motorist protection and medical payments or personal injury protection (PIP). Comprehensive protection covers damages due to non-collision incidents such as theft or severe weather damage. Collision, uninsured motorist protection provides financial assistance in cases of accidents involving an uninsured driver responsible for causing the accident or if you require medical attention after suffering injuries from said incident.

Will “Full Coverage” Insurance Cover Your Car Accident?

When people say they have “full coverage” on their car, it typically refers to solely property damage. This means if your car is worth $15,000 and someone crashes into you or you crash into someone else, you will have full coverage to replace your car. However, this does not mean you have full coverage to cover the damages caused by the accident. So it is important to understand the exact details of your policy when trying to determine if you have full coverage on your vehicle.
