Why you need to buy car insurance
Despite the high cost, maintaining insurance serves a purpose in several ways.
- The majority of states have minimum mandated liability insurance limits which means it is punishable by state law to not carry specific minimum amounts of liability insurance in order to drive the car legally. In Texas these limits are 30/60/25 which means you must have $30,000 of bodily injury coverage per person, $60,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and $25,000 of property damage coverage.
- If your vehicle has a lienholder, it’s guaranteed your bank will make it a condition of the loan that you have full coverage to ensure loan repayment if the vehicle is totaled. If you let the policy lapse, the lender may have to buy a policy to insure your Buick for a lot more money and require you to pay for the much more expensive policy.
- Car insurance preserves not only your car but also your financial assets. It will also reimburse you for medical bills for not only you but also any passengers injured in an accident. Liability insurance, one of your policy coverages, will also pay attorney fees in the event you are sued. If damage is caused by hail or an accident, your car insurance policy will cover the repair costs.
The benefits of carrying enough insurance definitely exceed the price paid, especially when you need to use it. An average driver in America is overpaying more than $850 per year so smart consumers compare quotes at every policy renewal to help ensure money is not being wasted.
