Does a 100/300/100 liability insurance policy offer too much coverage?
I'm thinking of upping my liability limits, but I don't know if a 100/300/100 policy is too much. I currently have a net worth of $50,000 and I make $55,000 per year.
“A general rule is to take your net worth and add it to three times your annual salary.
In your case, this would be $215,000. That should be your bottom-line minimum for car insurance coverage.
Therefore, you should consider getting something like 250/500/250 liability coverage.
But always remember that hospital visits aren’t cheap. You may even want to consider getting limits up into the million-dollar range if you can afford it.
To pay an affordable rate for more coverage, don’t forget to compare car insurance quotes online.”

I got into an accident on the way home from buying my car. I was planning to purchase insurance when I got home. The wreck happened about two hours ago. Will I still be covered if I buy insurance now?
