$25,000 for each injured person in an accident

$50,000 total for each accident

$25,000 for property damage per accident

$30,000 for each injured person in an accident

$60,000 total for each accident

What does this mean for you?  This means that if you are in a car accident in Texas, you may be able to recover more money for your injuries and vehicle damage.  But be careful!  The Department of Insurance indicates that 50% of vehicles in Texas are only minimally insured and 1 in 5 vehicles are uninsured!  For a full article, visit http://www.statesman.com/news/texas-politics/mandatory-auto-liability-coverage-to-rise-in-new-1118232.html.
