Auto insurance policies with full coverage include more liability protection than the state minimum, as well as comprehensive and collision coverage. Together, collision and comprehensive insurance reimburse you for damage to your car after an accident, as well as situations like vandalism or theft. Buying full coverage is required if you have a car loan or lease, and it's also worth it if your car is valuable enough that you wouldn't be able to cover repairs out of pocket after an at-fault accident.
