Basic insurance is the amount the state of Mississippi requires drivers to carry to register their motor vehicles. The amount you need to carry is $25,000 in bodily injury or death for each person with a total maximum of $50,000. You also need an additional $25,000 for damage to property. This is usually referred to as 25/50/25. It is the necessary amount required, but is it the right amount for you? Before that question can be answered, your insurance agent will need to ask you for some information. At Storey Insurance in Seantobia, MS, we have been helping our customers find reliable coverage at reasonable prices for over 17 years.
To know if basic auto insurance is the right choice, the first thing you need to consider is how much are you worth? Do you have assets, own a home, have savings? Will the basic amounts of liability insurance be enough to protect your assets in the event you have an accident where you are at fault? You could be made to pay hospital expenses and even be sued. It may be the basic amount is not enough.
If you own a vehicle with very little value, then basic insurance may be enough. But if you have a loan or a lease, you will need to carry collision and comprehensive coverage. If you own your car outright and it has significant value, and you rely on your vehicle to get to your employment, to appointments, or just to go grocery shopping, then having more than basic insurance is in order. Collision and comprehensive protect your vehicle and will help you to repair or replace it.
