Whether you drive one of the newest electric cars, or a diesel dually truck, make sure you and your vehicle are prepared for every possible situation. Liability coverage is required in Virginia and Tennessee and can pay for injuries or damages you cause while driving, up to your policy’s limits.


General Liability coverage on your auto insurance policy protects you in two ways:

  1.  Bodily injury liability: Pays for someone else’s medical bills if you’re liable for their injuries in an auto accident.​

  2.  Property damage liability: Pays for damage to someone else's vehicle and/or property if you’re liable in auto accident.

Comprehensive coverage protects your vehicle from events out of your control, including fire, theft, vandalism, hitting an animal, glass breakage, or acts of nature.

Collision coverage pays to repair or replace your damaged vehicle if you collide with another object, such as a tree, guardrail, fence, or another vehicle.


Home/Property Insurance:

Renting, buying, or building a home? Ensure that your property, both inside and out, is protected against any unforeseen circumstance that may arise. 

Three basic levels of coverage exist: actual cash value, replacement cost, and extended replacement cost/value. Policy rates are largely determined by the insurer's risk that you'll file a claim; they assess this risk based on past claim history associated with the home, the neighborhood, and the home's condition.

Flood Insurance:

What does flood insurance cover in Virginia?

If your home is damaged in a flood event, whether it's accidental or caused by a natural disaster, only a flood insurance policy will pay to repair your dwelling and replace personal belongings.

Property Insurance: There are three types of property insurance coverage: replacement cost, actual cash value, and extended replacement costs.

Renters Insurance:  Virginia and Tennessee state law doesn't require you to have renters insurance.  However, your landlord or property management company may require you to get a renters insurance policy before they let you move in. Having coverage to protect your possessions may be a viable reason to consider taking out a rental insurance policy, even if it's not required. Virginia and Tennessee renters insurance policies are typically inexpensive and can protect you against covered perils that may result in financial loss.

Commercial policies pertain to business holdings. There are several different types of commercial life insurance policies, each with its own advantages and beneficiary rules. One of the most common is individual life coverage, which pays the subscriber’s family enough to prevent the forced sale of business assets to satisfy liens on personal property. Many small business owners use their family’s home as collateral for loans that are used to invest in commercial operations. Buy-sell agreements and key person insurance are other commercial life policies that help keep your business in the right hands after you’re gone.
