Coverage for the insured person who is injured in an automobile accident with an uninsured driver, and the insured is not at fault or legally liable for the accident.

Coverage for the insured person who is injured in an automobile accident with an under-insured driver, and the insured is not at fault or legally liable for the accident. If the party responsible for the accident does not have insurance that provides enough coverage to pay for damages, this policy would pay for injuries sustained by the insured person as a result of the automobile accident. 

Uninsured Motorists Property Damage Coverage 

Coverage for the insured person who is in an automobile accident with an uninsured driver, and the insured is not at fault or legally liable for the accident.

Optional coverage that helps pay rental vehicle costs when your insured vehicle is disabled by a covered accident or loss. Daily rental amounts are subject to the limit purchased. This coverage is available to most policyholders for an additional premium.

Mexico Coverage 

Coverage is provided for accidents occurring in Mexico within 25 miles of the United States border. This extension of coverage applies only for infrequent trips into Mexico that do not exceed ten days at any one time. 

Auto accidents in Mexico are subject to the laws of Mexico, not the laws of the United States. The Republic of Mexico considers an auto accident a criminal offense as well as a civil matter. 

In some cases, Mexican authorities may not recognize the coverage and the company may not be allowed to implement this coverage at all in Mexico. You should consider purchasing auto coverage from a licensed Mexico insurance company before driving into Mexico. 

Auto Death Indemnity Coverage 

Coverage is provided if the covered person dies from injuries sustained in an automobile accident, regardless of who is at fault in the accident. Coverage is available only to the person(s) listed on the policy and only if death occurs within 90 days after the accident or within 52 weeks after the accident and during a period of continuous total disability. The coverage limits are usually $5,000 or $10,000. 

Total Disability Coverage 

Coverage is provided for an insured person disabled by injuries sustained in an automobile accident. Payment will be $60.00 per week if the injured person is employed at the time of the accident and $30.00 per week if the injured person is unemployed at the time of the accident and will begin 20 days from the date of the accident. 

The disability must be continuous in order for payments to continue. The maximum period allowed is 200 weeks. This coverage is provided regardless of who is at fault in the accident but is available only to the insured and any other person injured while occupying the vehicle involved in the accident.

DISCOUNTS AND CREDITS

Optional credits are available on automobile insurance policies as established by the Texas Department of Insurance. The credits vary from company to company. 

Academic Achievement Discount

A credit can be applied on a vehicle driven by someone under the age of 25 if:

  • He or she is enrolled as a full-time student in the junior or senior year of high school or is taking academic courses in an institution of higher education
  • The student maintains a "B" average or better, or 3.0 average or above, on a 4.0 scale

Proof is required to receive this credit. Provide the student’s official scholastic records for the preceding academic grade reporting period.

Anti-Lock Brake Discount

This credit may be applied when a vehicle is equipped with anti-lock brakes, which could lessen the likelihood of an automobile accident. The credit can apply to vehicles with two-wheel or four-wheel anti-lock brake systems.

Anti-Theft Discount

This credit is applied to a vehicle that is equipped with a qualifying anti-theft device. We require written verification of the type of alarm system installed on the vehicle.

Daytime Running Lights Discount

This credit may be given for a vehicle equipped with daytime running lights. The lights can be original equipment or an “after factory” purchase, if installed by a qualified technician.

Driver Improvement Course Credit

This credit is commonly referred to as a Driver Training Course credit or Defensive Driver Training Course credit.

  • the driver training credit is available for any male driver under the age of 25 or any female driver under the age of 21 who has completed an approved driver education course.

  • automatically deploys without any manual operation being performed by the occupants of the auto. 

Note: this credit applies only to medical payments and/or personal injury protection coverage premiums. If one of these coverages is not selected, the credit cannot be applied to the policy. 

Renewal Discount

This credit may be given after a policy has been in force for over six months and is based upon the driving experience of the insured members of a household. Most companies require that the drivers be loss free for at least three years.

Student Away at School Discount 

A credit can be applied for a household member who meets the following criteria:

  • Male under the age of 25 or an unmarried female under the age of 21
  • A student living away from home to attend school, who does not own an auto or have an auto furnished for his or her regular use at school.
