What do you do when your having trouble finding insurance coverage? You may need help from a High Risk Texas Insurance broker.
Texas Auto Insurance Law
Texas state law requires proof of financial responsibility for anyone who drives a car in the state. Most Texans choose to purchase liability insurance to meet this requirement. Liability insurance pays for bodily injury, property damage, and some additional expenses of other drivers, their passengers, and your passengers when you or a driver covered by your policy causes an accident. The minimum liability insurance required by law is $20,000 per injured person, $40,000 for everyone injured in an accident, and $15,000 for property damage per accident. This is commonly called “20/40/15” coverage. Liability insurance does not pay for damage to your own vehicle. Also applies to High Risk Texas Commercial Insurance.
To get the most accurate rate quotes, your agent or broker will need certain information, such as:
•Which employees will be driving your trucks?
•What kinds of qualifications, CDL license/s, or training do your drivers have?
•Will they be hauling heavy equipment or hazardous materials?
•How many miles will your vehicles travel each year?
•What states will your vehicles be operating in?
