Do I really need uninsured motorist coverage in Texas?
Insurance protects you financially by paying the other driver’s repair or medical bills if you are responsible for an accident. Texas law requires you to show proof for auto liability insurance. It is also smart to get uninsured motorist coverage, which will protect you if you get into an accident with someone without insurance.
What is uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage?
This coverage pays if you’re hit by someone without insurance or not enough insurance to cover the costs associated with the accident. This also applies to a hit-and-run accident. This should cover you, anyone in the vehicle, and people driving your car with permission. However, you must meet a deductible for a claim. This is the amount that you will pay yourself. Also, some policies may only pay up to a certain dollar amount, even if the cost is higher.
