Although your car insurance policy may meet Missouri's minimum coverage requirements, it may not be enough to fully cover damages in an expensive accident. We recommend all Kansas City drivers consider purchasing higher coverage limits, as well as comprehensive and collision insurance — particularly if your car has a value far in excess of the cost of comprehensive and collision coverage.
