Best Answer

No. Unless you killed somebody's pet deer, liability insurance is no value. Liability insurance covers the damage you do to somebody else's property or person. Collision insurance covers damage to your vehicle when you strike an object or animal or when your vehicle is damaged by someone unknown, as in a hit-and-run accident.

The liability will cover for most property damage that may happen. I don't think that the deers family will sue you so that may not apply in this case.

Deer Collision No. Liability insurance is triggered when you are at-fault for an accident. It's used to pay for the damage you cause to someone else's property, not your own.

If you dodge a deer and wreck your car does your insurance cover you?

If you hit the deer, it would fall under your COMPREHENSIVE auto coverage (if you have it). You need deer hair on the car, at the point of impact, for it to be covered under comp. Roughly 25% of all US drivers lack this coverage and the understanding of ALL of the things that it can cover. If you avoid the deer, and crash, then it would fall under your COLLISION auto coverage (if you have it), and would count as an at fault accident, and your rate/premium could increase. However, do not listen to those who tell you Not to avoid hitting that deer. Since deer have long legs, they generally "fly" over the hood through the windshield. This can result in serious bodily injury. Sometimes the driver is even paralyzed for life.

If you get hit by a deer and only have liability coverage would your car be covered?

Collision insurance covers damage to your car when your car hits or is hit by another object, while comprehensive insurance covers losses resulting from incidents other than collision - floods, damage caused by external forces, and so on.
