Some people say that the fastest way to go broke in America is to cause a significant motor vehicle collision and not be adequately insured. There is a lot of truth to that statement. With today's high hospital, surgical and medical costs, it does not take long to run up medical bills in excess of $100,000.00 or $200,000.00. A short stay in the hospital could result in bills far in excess of $100,000.00. If you do not have adequate insurance to protect you against lawsuits from injured people, you could easily have a judgment rendered against you in an amount far in excess of your assets.
The Importance of Liability Insurance
While the law does allow certain exemptions from the execution of a judgment, those exemptions are not great and you could lose your home or business if you are subject to a judgment in excess of your liability insurance limits. The good news is that you can insure yourself for $1,000,000.00 or more for far less than you might think. For most people, a million dollars worth of liability insurance will cost you significantly less than $800 a year. This is insurance you hope you never need. However, should you or a member of your family negligently cause injury to another person, with adequate liability insurance, you can rest assured that your personal assets will be protected.
