What car insurance coverage is required in El Paso?
The state of Texas requires all El Paso drivers to have car insurance.
Let’s run through some basics first. Remember: A “limit” on your car insurance policy refers to the maximum amount your insurance company will pay out on a certain type of claim.
For example, Texas drivers are required to have a minimum of $30,000/$60,000 of bodily injury liability coverage. That means that for a certain type of claim your car insurance company could pay out a maximum of $30,000 of bodily injury coverage per person, and $60,000 of bodily injury coverage in total (for all of the people injured in an accident.)
To comply with Texas’s car insurance coverage requirements, El Paso drivers need the following coverages and minimum coverage amounts:
|Required minimum coverages for El Paso drivers||Minimum amount required|
|Bodily injury liability coverage||$30,000/60,000|
|Property damage liability coverage||$25,000|
Keep in mind: Your levels of bodily injury and property damage liability coverage don’t have to stop at the bare minimum. You can easily select higher amounts for each required coverage and include optional add-on coverages when you build your policy on the Lemonade app.
