Liability Auto Coverage

Texas requires drivers to have a few different amounts of coverage for liability in order to stay legal. This includes bodily injury liability and property damage liability. There are two different amounts required for bodily injury coverage. This includes one amount for one person who is injured and another amount for two or more people who are injured. This coverage applies to someone else’s medical bills, not yours, and in the event that you caused the accident. Property damage liability also covers an accident that you caused and covers the damage done to someone else’s property. 

Other Coverage Types

Texas has a unique system of auto insurance coverage that includes automatic coverage types on everyone’s policies as well as the required liability coverage. These automatic coverages are not required by law in order to stay legal, but you will have to notify the insurance company in writing if you don’t want those coverages and want to cancel them. However, it is recommended that you keep them to stay better protected. One of the automatic coverages is personal injury protection. This pays for your medical bills, and your passengers’, if someone else’s coverage doesn’t pay for them. There is also uninsured motorist coverage. This pays for medical bills when the other driver, who causes the accident, doesn’t have the insurance to pay for them.
