What Kind of Insurance Do You Need for Your Toyota Camry?

Bodily injury liability: In the unfortunate event that you're in an accident while driving and you're at fault, bodily injury liability insurance pays for costs associated with medical care and recovery for the injured third party. Most states mandate a minimum amount of this policy that all drivers must carry.

Property damage liability: If you or someone who is authorized is driving your car and damages someone's property, property damage liability insurance pays for to repair or replace the property. It's smart to purchase more than the legally required minimum amount since you'll most likely have to pay for damage that exceeds the limits of your policy. 

Medical payments/Personal injury protection: Your agent can help you understand your options when it comes to medical payments insurance or personal injury protection. In some areas, you'll have to buy some amount of one of these types of coverage. If you are in an accident, this policy pays for covered costs related to physical recovery from the incident for both you and your passengers. The following states require this insurance:

  • Delaware
  • Florida
  • Hawaii
  • Kansas
  • Kentucky
  • Maryland (unless a waiver is signed at initial purchase of the policy)
  • Massachusetts
  • Michigan
  • Minnesota
  • New Jersey
  • New York
  • North Dakota
  • Oregon
  • Pennsylvania
  • Utah 

Uninsured motorist coverage: Even though it's illegal, many drivers still hit the road with insufficient or no insurance coverage. Uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage is optional, but since you can't control whether the drivers around you are properly insured, it's a good idea to consider adding this coverage to your auto policy. This extra protection pays for vehicle repairs if you are in an accident with someone who doesn't have enough insurance to handle your claim. 

Optional Coverage:

Collision: Collision insurance coverage will repair or replace your Toyota Camry if you are in a covered accident with another vehicle. Collision coverage is only worth purchasing if the value of your car is significant enough that it will cost a lot to repair. You independent agent can help you determine if collision insurance is right for you.

Comprehensive: Comprehensive coverage is designed to protect you from everything that collision insurance won't. This includes running into animals, falling tree branches, vandalism, or theft. After your deductible, your insurance company will pay the rest of your bill up to your policy limits.

Glass coverage: You can avoid the potentially expensive cost of replacing a windshield by purchasing glass coverage. This no-deductible and affordable policy costs only a few dollars a month and will pay for the cost to replace your windshield.

Gap insurance: When you purchase a new Toyota Camry, the dealership offers gap insurance as an add-on in the finance office. If you declined gap insurance, you can still add it to your auto insurance policy with the help of your agent. If you owe more money on your Toyota Camry than its fair market value, you'll have to pay the difference between the insurance settlement and the total amount due to your bank or lease company if the car is a total loss after an accident. You can purchase gap insurance for any vehicle, and it does not have to be a new buy.
