Your own liability insurance will never pay for the damage to your property or for your medical expenses. Your collision insurance pays for damage to your property, if it is your fault.

Your liability insurance will pay for the damage to someone else's property or for someone else's medical expenses, if it is your fault.

What kind of car insurance pays for your injuries when you're in an accident in your car?

Three types of auto insurance come to mind: medical payments (or personal injury protection), liability coverage and under/uninsured motorist coverage. Med Pay is coverage that protects the occupants of a car and pays medical bills up to the amount of the med pay policy limits. Liability coverage is the car insurance that pays on behalf of the at-fault driver. This coverage makes a lump sum payment to the injured person who is not at fault. UM coverage is owned by the injured person and pays them in cases where the at-fault driver does not have any insurance or does not have enough liability coverage.
