Collision insurance covers your car or truck when it's in an accident with another vehicle. It also covers you when you hit an object like a tree or a pole that’s not covered under comprehensive insurance.

When you give permission to a friend or relative to borrow your car and they get in a fender bender, your auto policy could provide coverage. Ask an agent how ERIE’s auto policy can help protect you.
Liability insurance helps protect drivers when they’re responsible for an accident that injures other people or damages other people’s property. Drivers are required to have this coverage in nearly every state.

An umbrella policy gives you an extra layer of protection over and above the limits in an auto, home or boat policy in case you’re sued or responsible for an accident. Ask an agent about ERIE’s personal catastrophe liability policy.
When life throws you a curveball, comprehensive insurance covers damage to your vehicle that’s not caused by a collision, such as fire, theft or when you hit a deer.
