Let’s say you get into an accident and you have a 100/300/100 full-coverage policy. Your policy will cover up to $100,000 for medical bills from one person’s injury, $300,000 for each vehicle and another $100,000 for property damage.
With State Farm, you will pay just $43 more per year on average for 100/300/100 full-coverage insurance compared to a 50/100/50 full-coverage policy, so the added coverage is likely worth it.
