Insurance protects more than just your car
Even though Arlington Q45 insurance rates can get expensive, maintaining insurance serves several important purposes.
- Almost all states have minimum liability requirements which means state laws require specific limits of liability coverage if you don’t want to risk a ticket. In Texas these limits are 30/60/25 which means you must have $30,000 of bodily injury coverage per person, $60,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and $25,000 of property damage coverage.
- If you took out a loan on your vehicle, it’s most likely the lender will force you to have insurance to guarantee their interest in the vehicle. If the policy lapses, the bank or lender will purchase a policy for your Infiniti at a significantly higher premium and require you to reimburse them much more than you were paying before.
- Insurance protects your vehicle and your assets. Insurance will pay for all forms of medical expenses for yourself as well as anyone injured by you. Liability insurance will also pay to defend you in the event you are sued. If your car is damaged in a storm or accident, collision and comprehensive (also known as other-than-collision) coverage will pay to have it repaired.
The benefits of carrying adequate insurance outweigh the cost, especially when you need to use it. Despite what companies tell you, the average driver is overpaying over $800 each year so you should quote your policy with other companies each time the policy renews to be sure current rates are still competitive.

Auto insurance coverage specifics
Having a good grasp of auto insurance helps when choosing which coverages you need at the best deductibles and correct limits. Auto insurance terms can be confusing and reading a policy is terribly boring. Shown next are typical coverages found on most auto insurance policies.
Insurance for medical payments
Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP provide coverage for short-term medical expenses for things like rehabilitation expenses, surgery, funeral costs and X-ray expenses. They are used to fill the gap from your health insurance plan or if you lack health insurance entirely. Medical payments and PIP cover all vehicle occupants and will also cover being hit by a car walking across the street. Personal Injury Protection is not available in all states and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay
This coverage pays for damage to your Q45 resulting from a collision with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. You have to pay a deductible then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.
Collision insurance covers claims such as scraping a guard rail, colliding with a tree, hitting a mailbox, hitting a parking meter and sideswiping another vehicle. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from older vehicles. It’s also possible to increase the deductible on your Q45 to get cheaper collision coverage.
Liability auto insurance
Liability insurance will cover damage that occurs to other’s property or people. This insurance protects YOU against other people’s claims, and does not provide coverage for your own vehicle damage or injuries.
Coverage consists of three different limits, bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. You commonly see policy limits of 30/60/25 that translate to $30,000 bodily injury coverage, a total of $60,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and a total limit of $25,000 for damage to vehicles and property.
Liability coverage pays for claims such as legal defense fees, structural damage, funeral expenses and loss of income. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is a decision to put some thought into, but you should buy as large an amount as possible. Texas requires drivers to carry at least 30/60/25 but it’s recommended drivers buy more coverage.
The chart below shows why minimum state limits may not be enough coverage.
Comprehensive coverage (or Other than Collision)
This coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You first have to pay a deductible and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive insurance covers things such as falling objects, theft, hitting a bird, rock chips in glass and damage from getting keyed. The maximum amount you’ll receive from a claim is the cash value of the vehicle, so if the vehicle is not worth much consider dropping full coverage.
Uninsured Motorist or Underinsured Motorist insurance
Your UM/UIM coverage protects you and your vehicle from other drivers when they do not carry enough liability coverage. Covered claims include injuries sustained by your vehicle’s occupants and also any damage incurred to your Infiniti Q45.
Since many Texas drivers only purchase the least amount of liability that is required (which is 30/60/25), it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. This is the reason having UM/UIM coverage is very important.
