Making sure that you are covered before you hit the road is important. In Texas, you have to prove financial responsibility but aren’t required to do that with auto insurance. Most people, however, find that auto insurance is the easiest way to prove you are responsible. Financial responsibility is making sure others are protected from you. At Amy Tounget Insurance Agency LLC in Midlothian, TX, we work without customers to make sure that the coverage we recommend meets their needs.
The type of auto insurance that protects others is liability coverage. The amount you should have is 30/60/25. That covers one person in an accident up to $30,000 in personal injury, with the total for the entire accident of $60,000. Damage to personal property should be covered for $25,000. But even though this is all you must have, it doesn’t mean it’s what you should have.
Having the bare minimum may not offer you enough protection for your assets in the event of a serious accident with injuries.
If you have a car loan or lease a vehicle, you will be required by the lender to have insurance that protects the vehicle they have an investment in. Collision insurance protects your vehicle in the event of an accident that you are responsible for or where the other driver has inadequate insurance. It also protects you in the event you are the victim of a hit and run.
Comprehensive insurance protects your vehicle from things other than a collision that damages your car. It can be theft or vandalism, weather-related events like wind, hail, or flooding. Anything other than a collision will most likely be covered.
