Three good reasons to insure your M45
Despite the high cost, insurance serves several important purposes.
- Just about all states have minimum liability requirements which means it is punishable by state law to not carry specific minimum amounts of liability coverage in order to be legal. In Louisiana these limits are 15/30/25 which means you must have $15,000 of bodily injury coverage per person, $30,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and $25,000 of property damage coverage.
- If you took out a loan on your vehicle, almost every bank will force you to buy full coverage to ensure they get paid if you total the vehicle. If you cancel or allow the policy to lapse, the lender may insure your Infiniti at a significantly higher premium and require you to pay much more than you were paying before.
- Auto insurance protects both your Infiniti M45 and your personal assets. It also can pay for most medical and hospital costs for both you and anyone you injure as the result of an accident. Liability coverage will also pay to defend you in the event you are sued. If your Infiniti gets damaged, your policy will pay to have it repaired.
The benefits of having auto insurance are without a doubt worth the cost, particularly for liability claims. Despite what companies tell you, the average driver is overpaying more than $820 a year so compare rate quotes at every renewal to make sure the price is not too high.
When do I need an agent’s advice?
Always remember that when buying coverage online or from an agent for your personal vehicles, there really is not a “best” method to buy coverage. Everyone’s situation is unique.
For example, these questions may help you determine if your insurance needs would benefit from professional advice.
- Do I need special coverage while pulling a rented trailer?
- Am I covered if I break a side mirror?
- Does coverage follow the driver or the vehicle?
- Am I covered if I hit my neighbor’s mailbox?
- How much will a speeding ticket raise my rates?
- Are my custom wheels covered?
- What is an SR-22 filing?
- Can I still get insurance after a DUI?
- Is my dog or cat covered if injured in an accident?
- What are the best liability limits?
If you don’t know the answers to these questions but you think they might apply to your situation, you might consider talking to an agent. If you want to speak to an agent in your area, complete this form.

Deciding on an company is decision based upon more than just the premium amount. Any good agent in New Orleans should know the answers to these questions.
- If your car is in the repair shop, do you have coverage for a rental car?
- Do they have cheaper tiers of coverage?
- Does the agency have a positive business rating?

- Is the coverage adequate for your vehicle?
If you want to use a local agent, you should know the different types of agents that differ in how they can insure your vehicles. Car insurance policy providers are categorized either exclusive or independent (non-exclusive).
Exclusive Car Insurance Agents
Agents that choose to be exclusive can only provide pricing for a single company and some examples include AAA, Allstate, State Farm, or Farmers Insurance. Exclusive agencies are unable to compare rates from other companies so you need to shop around if the rates are high. Exclusive agents are usually well trained on their products and sales techniques which helps them sell on service rather than price.
Listed below is a short list of exclusive agents in New Orleans that can give you rate quotes.
Independent Insurance Agents
Agents in the independent channel are not required to write business for one company and that gives them the ability to insure with many different companies and find you cheaper rates. To move your coverage to a new company, they simply switch companies in-house without you having to go to a different agency.
If you need lower rates, we recommend you contact at a minimum one independent agency to get the most accurate price comparison.
The following is a short list of independent insurance agents in New Orleans willing to provide price quote information.
Coverages available on your car insurance policy
Learning about specific coverages of your car insurance policy helps when choosing appropriate coverage for your vehicles. The coverage terms in a policy can be difficult to understand and reading a policy is terribly boring.
Comprehensive coverage (or Other than Collision)
This coverage pays for damage from a wide range of events other than collision. You need to pay your deductible first and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive coverage protects against things such as a tree branch falling on your vehicle, hail damage, damage from a tornado or hurricane and vandalism. The highest amount you’ll receive from a claim is the actual cash value, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value it’s probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.
Collision coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage caused by collision with a stationary object or other vehicle. You will need to pay your deductible then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.
Collision coverage protects against things such as driving through your garage door, backing into a parked car, hitting a mailbox and colliding with another moving vehicle. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so consider dropping it from lower value vehicles. Drivers also have the option to increase the deductible on your M45 to bring the cost down.
Liability auto insurance
This coverage provides protection from damage or injury you incur to a person or their property that is your fault. This coverage protects you against other people’s claims. It does not cover damage to your own property or vehicle.
It consists of three limits, bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. As an example, you may have values of 15/30/25 that translate to $15,000 bodily injury coverage, a limit of $30,000 in injury protection per accident, and property damage coverage for $25,000.
Liability can pay for claims like attorney fees, repair costs for stationary objects, funeral expenses and court costs. How much liability coverage do you need? That is a personal decision, but consider buying as large an amount as possible. Louisiana requires drivers to carry at least 15/30/25 but it’s recommended drivers buy higher limits.
The illustration below shows why low liability limits may not provide adequate coverage.
Uninsured Motorist or Underinsured Motorist insurance
This provides protection from other drivers when they are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. Covered claims include injuries sustained by your vehicle’s occupants and also any damage incurred to your Infiniti M45.
Since many Louisiana drivers only purchase the least amount of liability that is required (Louisiana limits are 15/30/25), their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. So UM/UIM coverage is a good idea.
Insurance for medical payments
Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage pay for expenses such as X-ray expenses, nursing services, EMT expenses, doctor visits and pain medications. They can be utilized in addition to your health insurance policy or if you are not covered by health insurance. It covers all vehicle occupants as well as being hit by a car walking across the street. PIP is only offered in select states but can be used in place of medical payments coverage
