Auto Insurance Information
Car Insurance in Midland, TX
Auto insurance protects you against financial loss if you have an accident. It is a contract between you and the insurance company. You agree to pay the premium and the insurance company agrees to pay your losses as defined in your policy.
Auto insurance provides property, liability and medical coverage:
- Property coverage pays for damage to or theft of your car.
- Liability coverage pays for your legal responsibility to others for bodily injury or property damage.
- Medical coverage pays for the cost of treating injuries, rehabilitation and sometimes lost wages and funeral expenses.
An auto insurance policy is comprised of six different kinds of coverage. Most states require you to buy some, but not all, of these coverages. If you're financing a car, your lender may also have requirements.
Most auto policies are for six months or a year. Your insurance company should notify you by mail when it's time to renew the policy and to pay your premium.

Common Auto Insurance Questions:
What is auto insurance?
Auto insurance is, in many ways, a contract between a car owner and an insurance agency that states the insurer will help assist financially in the case of an accident to help alleviate significant damage costs. The amount the insurance agency provides depends on the type of policy the car owner has. The benefit of auto insurance is that the driver can feel safe knowing that they’ll have financial assistance in the unfortunate case of an accident.
How does auto insurance work?
Costs tend to get very high for car accidents. Auto insurance is a guarantee that you will be assisted financially, in some type of way, to keep out-of-pocket costs down. Following an accident, you will file a claim and, depending on what you are responsible for, you’ll be given a certain amount of money to assist with damage costs. It’s important to have proper coverage to avoid paying hefty out-of-pocket costs.
What does auto insurance cover?
The average auto insurance policy can offer numerous benefits, including:
Collision insurance: This covers damage to your own vehicle that you sustained in a wreck.
Comprehensive insurance: This coverage pays for damage from non-accident mishaps, such as weather damage, fires, theft, vandalism or similar accidents.
Medical payments coverage/Personal Injury Protection: If you get hurt in an accident, this coverage can pay for your medical bills. It sometimes will cover other losses, like lost income.
Uninsured/underinsured motorist insurance: This insures you against damage caused by someone else who doesn’t have appropriate liability coverage. If you are the victim of a hit-and-run, for example, then this coverage can pay for your car’s damage.
Plus, to further customize your benefits, you can add countless perks into qualifying policies, including:

Is auto insurance required?
Texas is different from most other states because it doesn’t generally mandate workers’ compensation insurance. However, this coverage is still an appealing option for most business owners since it provides important protections for employees and employers after a work-related injury or illness. Companies that contract with government entities are required to have coverage.
Business owners that decide not to purchase workers’ comp insurance are called nonsubscribers. If an employee is injured on the job at a business with no coverage, that person can sue the employer. In that case, the employer is not allowed to defend itself in court with an argument of employee negligence.
Collision, comprehensive and gap coverage policies might also be required for car owners who decided to finance their vehicles.
