Comprehensive insurance essentially covers you for things that happen to your car that aren’t caused by you or another driver. Think of it this way: If collision insurance covers you for accidents, comprehensive insurance covers pretty much everything else that could happen to your vehicle. It provides auto coverage for an array of situations, including fires, severe weather damage, vandalism and theft.

Designed to work with collision insurance, comprehensive car insurance allows you to make claims through your insurance to cover costs of repairs or even provides a settlement if the repair estimates exceed the value of the vehicle itself.
