Understanding liability insurance coverage

Are you or someone you’re adding to an auto insurance policy new to driving? Whether you’re a teen driver or more experienced, it’s important to understand your car insurance coverage to help you make coverage decisions beyond the car insurance requirements in Texas.

The state of Texas, like most states, requires the purchase of minimum liability insurance. Liability plans include:

  • Bodily injury: If you’re involved in an accident that you’re fully or partially responsible for causing, this coverage handles passenger and bystander injury costs.
  • Property damage: This coverage encompasses costs related to property damage caused by an accident you’re fully or partially at fault for.

Considering there can be additional costs related to car accidents, it’s important for you to examine additional options to help ensure you have the coverage you need.

Optional Texas car insurance coverages

In addition to your required bodily injury and property damage minimums, insurers are required to offer the following in Texas—but you’ve got the option to reject them:

  • Personal injury protection (PIP): This coverage addresses expenses for injuries or medical treatment for you or your passengers regardless of who is at fault in an accident you’re involved in. If you reject PIP in Texas, medical payments coverage is an option, but is limited to only covering medical payments. PIP, on the other hand, is more robust and can cover other accident-related losses like lost wages.
  • Uninsured/underinsured motorist bodily injury (UM/UIM BI): This helps protect you by covering the cost of injuries to you and your passengers when involved in an accident caused by a driver who either doesn’t have any insurance or doesn’t have enough.
  • Uninsured/underinsured motorist property damage (UM/UIM PD): If you’re in an accident caused by someone who either doesn’t have insurance or not enough insurance, the cost of property damage is covered with this option.

Paying out of pocket or being sued for damages caused by an accident can be life-altering. Electing to purchase optional forms of insurance can help to ensure you’re covered for damages resulting from a multi-car accident, in cases where another car is totaled, or when an accident occurs where another driver is at fault and doesn’t have any/enough auto insurance.

Optional Texas auto insurance coverage

  • PIP ($2,500 minimum)
    • Coverage will be added by insurer unless rejected by customer
    • Limits on all vehicles must be identical
  • UM/UIM BI ($30,000 minimum)
    • Coverage will be added by insurer unless rejected by customer
    • Cannot exceed the BI limit
    • Limits on all vehicles must be identical
  • UM/UIM PD ($25,000 minimum)
    • Coverage will be added by insurer unless rejected by customer
    • Must match the PD limit

Additional Texas auto insurance coverage offered by Dairyland

  • Medical payments: If you’re in an accident—regardless of who’s at fault—this covers medical and injury-related treatments. In Texas, you can choose this option instead of PIP.
  • Comprehensive: This coverage addresses damages to your vehicle that aren’t accident related, such as weather damage, theft, or vandalism.
  • Collision: This covers the costs related to vehicle damage done by striking or being struck by another vehicle.
  • Special equipment: If you’ve got custom parts installed in your vehicle, this coverage can help protect them.
  • Rental reimbursement: This coverage can help you cover car rental expenses due to loss of vehicle due to an accident. 
  • Limited Mexico coverage: If you’re planning a trip to Mexico for less than 10 days, Dairyland will extend your Texas car insurance across the border. If you’ll be extending your stay, travel to Mexico more than five times per month, or are traveling further than 25 miles from the border, talk to a Dairyland agent to receive help getting Mexican liability insurance.
