Auto liability insurance is specifically designed to cover any damage caused to other vehicles if you have an accident. It does not cover reapirs to your own vehicle. It is by law the minimum requirement for insurance in every state.

Damages to other's vehicles, property, or persons in an accident where you were found at fault. In "no fault states" each person's policy covers the other's damages without requiring determination of fault.
