Liability car insurance helps cover the other driver’s bodily injury and property damage expenses if you’re at fault in an accident. In most states, drivers are required to have it by law.

Bear in mind that liability does not cover your own medical bills or damage to your vehicle. To protect yourself, you should consider obtaining collision coverage, comprehensive coverage, and medical payments coverage.

This app is great, but the customer service is even better! Not to mention convenient! My husband and I got the lowest rate (much lower than the rates I was finding online through my own searches), quickly, and pretty much all through text message! Thank you so much for a hassle free experience👍
