Do I need more coverage on my Spectra than what Massachusetts requires?
My mom says I need more coverage than the state minimum in Massachusetts. I am 22 and drive a 2009 Kia Spectra, and I can save $90 a month with minimum liability coverage. And no, I am not putting full coverage on the Spectra.

“Many people elect to carry the lowest-cost coverage, but not the coverage that they need. You should have liability coverage limits that are significantly higher than the minimum requirements whenever possible.
The amount of liability coverage that you carry should be enough to protect you in the event of a catastrophic accident. Whether you have significant assets or not, you do not want to be in a situation where your liability coverage limits are exhausted.
Take a few moments to compare the cost of different coverage limits with different insurance companies. You can often increase your limits without seeing too much of an impact on your premium.
Use an insurance broker like Jerry to get quotes from multiple companies and ensure that you are getting the most coverage for the best price.”

Can car insurance companies deny a claim that is your maximum payout amount?
I got into an accident and the cost to repair my car is $300,000. The maximum amount for a claim on my policy is $300,000 as well. My insurance company denied my claim, and an agent said it was because companies will never pay out 100% of a claimable amount. They also want to mark my vehicle a total loss. Is this legal?
