Missouri requires that drivers have bodily injury liability coverage
of at least $25,000 per person and $50,000 per accident, and property
damage liability coverage of at least $10,000 per accident.
Missouri requires uninsured motorist coverage of at least $25,000 per
person and $50,000 per accident.
Basic Liability Coverage
If you want to legally drive in the State of Missouri or any other
state, you will need to have basic liability coverage. Liability
insurance provides for the other party if you are at fault for an
accident that causes bodily injury and/or property damage. It's a good
idea to get more coverage than the minimum, though, because accidents
are often far more expensive than that.
Comprehensive and Collision Coverage
Since basic liability insurance only covers repairs to the other
vehicle after a collision, most drivers opt for additional coverage
above and beyond liability. Collision coverage will take care of your
own vehicle repair costs and rental car charges if you are involved in
an accident, and with a comprehensive policy, you're also covered for
windshield damage, vandalism, theft, and fire. Even if you're looking
for a low monthly payment, you can still add comprehensive and
collision coverage to your policy if you choose a higher deductible.
Acceptance has you covered.
Uninsured Motorist Coverage
This is another required type of Missouri auto insurance that you will
need to add to your policy to legally drive in this state. Although
uninsured motorist coverage isn't required in every state, it's always
a good idea to have, because it will cover you even if an uninsured
driver hits your car.
