Is there such a thing as a "good and cheap" warranty?

Thinking about buying a Nexus 4 from the Google Play Store. Are there good third-party accidental damage warranties out there that won't break the bank?

I'll probably be purchasing the 16GB Nexus 4 ($350 + tax) from the Google Play Store. No contract. I'll probably sign up with T-Mobile pre-paid (don't know if that's useful info or not).
I have absolutely no experience in buying a third-party warranty (like square trade on Amazon) -- especially something that covers accidental damage. I take pretty good care of my electronics and phones, but this is the first expensive smart phone I've bought off contract.
I'm also using AmEx to buy it, so I know there's an extra year of warranty, but I'd imagine it doesn't cover accidental damage and I've also never used it.
