Feel secure knowing you have an insurance provider you can rely on. With Nationwide, it’s easy to customize your policy with affordable options for Texas auto insurance.
Texas car insurance coverage your policy must have
As a resident of Texas, there are two types of liability coverage your insurance policy must include: property damage and bodily injury.
- Property damage safeguards your assets if you are found legally responsible for a covered accident. It may cover certain damage you cause to the property or vehicle of another party.
- Bodily injury safeguards your assets if you’re found legally responsible for a covered accident, including certain expenses associated with bodily harm sustained by the other parties.
When you buy Texas car insurance coverage, you’ll need at least the required state minimum amount: $25,000/$50,000/$25,000. So in the event of an accident, you’ll get $25,000 coverage for bodily injury to one person per accident, $50,000 coverage for bodily injury to two or more people per accident, and $25,000 in property damage coverage per accident.
Liability coverage also provides for your legal defense expenses if you are sued as a result of a covered accident.
Texas auto insurance coverage that’s smart to have
It’s often a good idea to add the following coverages to your policy so you can enjoy the security of being protected on the road:
This type of Texas auto insurance coverage is used to repair your vehicle when physical damage occurs from non-collision related incidents (subject to deductible). Such incidents include theft, fire, vandalism, glass breakage, and contact with animals.
Collision coverage is used to repair your vehicle when physical damage occurs from collision with another vehicle or object (subject to deductible).
Protects you in the event of an accident where the other party is at-fault and either doesn’t carry insurance or is underinsured.
- Property damage helps pay for property damage to your vehicle that you are legally entitled to from another driver who is not insured or underinsured.
- Bodily injury helps pay for damages due to bodily injury that you and other passengers of your vehicle are legally entitled to from another driver who is not insured or is underinsured.
May pay for necessary medical expenses or funeral costs for you or others covered under the policy, no matter who is at fault. May not be selected if choosing personal injury protection.
Personal injury protection (PIP)
May reimburse a portion of wage loss, medical expenses and essential services incurred as a result of an accident to eligible injured parties (i.e. passengers or pedestrians). May not be selected if choosing medical benefits.
