MAPFRE Insurance helps to protect you, your car, and your peace of mind.
As a leading auto insurance carrier, we know how important it is to get the right coverage at an affordable price.
Liability coverage is required car insurance in most states. There are two types of liability coverage – bodily injury liability coverage and property damage liability coverage. It typically helps cover damages for those injured or killed and incurred property damage as the result of an at-fault accident.
Collision insurance is a type of coverage that helps cover damage to the insured’s car as a result of a collision. In an at-fault accident where the car is totaled, collision insurance can help compensate the policyholder for the value of the vehicle. In some cases, like in Massachusetts, collision damages to the insured’s vehicle may be covered whether at fault or not. Deductibles would apply.
When you’re insured by MAPFRE, this coverage typically protects the insured and their vehicle from direct and accidental damage, outside of a collision with another car or object. Comprehensive coverage typically covers things like damage to the insured vehicle from extreme weather, vandalism, or theft.
Medical payments coverage, sometimes called MedPay, usually helps pay for expenses related to necessary medical and funeral services for the insured, their family and their passengers following an accident, regardless of fault. In many states, MedPay is an optional addition to an insurance policy, but there are states where it is mandatory coverage.
Sometimes called no-fault coverage, PIP is similar to MedPay in that it can help cover medical expenses. However, in some states, PIP is mandatory coverage.
Full coverage isn’t a type of insurance, but rather a description for a combination of insurance including liability, collision, comprehensive and sometimes medical payments coverage. It offers the most protection and is typically more expensive than minimum liability insurance alone.
In an accident where the at-fault driver isn’t insured or doesn’t have enough insurance, uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage can help cover costly medical bills. UM / UIM coverage typically helps cover medical expenses the insured or their passengers sustain in the car accident when the other driver is uninsured or their insurance is insufficient.

What do you need to get car insurance?
These are the essential things you’ll need to get a car insurance quote:
- Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) – for each vehicle you’re looking to insure to get an accurate quote.
- Driver’s License Numbers – of anyone who is going to be covered by your insurance policy.
- Date of Birth – for each of the drivers you’ll want covered on your policy.
