“Like every state, Tennessee has a state minimum car insurance requirement.
Any car registered to operate on the road needs to have at least: *Bodily injury liability at $25,000 per person and $50,000 per accident. *Property damage liability at $15,000.
Most lenders also require that you carry both comprehensive insurance and collision insurance. These will protect your vehicle from any damage, regardless of fault.
You should consider carrying higher limits than the state minimum limits. Most experts recommend carrying the highest level of coverage you can afford.
By requesting car insurance quotes online, you can find the best rate and coverage for you.”

Will GEICO drop me after my most recent accident?
How many accidents can you have before a company drops you? I had a few accidents from a couple of years ago, and since then I have been working really hard on my driving. I have even taken a defensive driving class to improve. Well, I was in another accident the other day, and now I am worried GEICO will cancel my policy.

How can I make sure that USAA knows that I am not at fault for an accident?
What do you do if fault wrongly attributed in a car accident? My friend was in an accident the other day that should have been deemed not at-fault, but it wasn't. Now I am wondering how I can make sure this doesn't happen to me. I have a different carrier, USAA.

Will AAA cover a single-car accident?
"If I was the only car involved, will AAA consider this an accident and cover the damage? Last night I was driving home in a really bad thunderstorm. I was turning into what I thought was my driveway, but it was really the neighbors and I ruined their rose bushes and smashed into their gazebo. My car had hydroplaned as I was turning in and I lost all control."
