required coverages in memphis

All Volunteer State residents must carry basic liability coverage, which can help pay for the other driver's medical bills and property damage expenses (up to the limits you choose on your policy) if you cause an accident. Memphians must carry at least the following coverages and minimum limits:

  • $25,000 of bodily injury liability per person
  • $50,000 of bodily injury liability per incident
  • $15,000 of property damage liability per incident

These are often expressed as 25/50/15. You can always choose higher limits when you're getting a quote (or pretty much any time during your Esurance policy term).

optional coverages

If you overlook additional coverages that provide extra financial protection, you could find yourself financially strapped if life ever takes a turn for the worse. Here's a sampling of additional coverages that provide some serious protection:

Medical payments

This is designed to pay medical bills for you and the passengers in your car if you're injured in an accident. It doesn't matter whether or not you're at fault for the accident.

Uninsured/Underinsured motorist

These coverages are designed to protect you and your car if someone hits you and either doesn't have insurance or enough insurance to cover the costs.


This covers your car for the stuff that's not a "collision". Like if it's stolen. Or catches on fire. Or a tree falls on it. The crazy stuff that you never expect to happen ... but does.


This covers your car for collisions. Like you rear-end someone, slide into a tree, or run into a fence.

And that's just a start! Get a car insurance quote from Esurance today to make sure you have all the protection you need.

memphis driving: stats and facts

Keep an eye on your ride

Memphis had about twice the number of car thefts as Nashville in 2012 — despite their populations being similar in size. According to statistics from the FBI, Memphis saw nearly 3,000 auto thefts compared to Nashville's 1,431.

The good news is that the Memphis Police Department reported an 8.7 percent decline in the number of car thefts in 2013 and they continue to implement crime-fighting initiatives through the city. Still, it's wise to invest in comprehensive coverage, which helps protect your ride from theft, vandalism, and much more.

Distracted driving in Shelby County

According to info from the Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security, Shelby County (home to Memphis and smaller surrounding cities) saw more than 5,200 crashes related to distracted driving in 2013 alone. That's significantly higher than any other county in the state, with Davidson County coming in second at 1,853.

Fortunately, medical payments coverage and uninsured motorist coverage can help protect you and your passengers financially if you're ever involved in an accident with a distracted driver.
