State Auto Liability Insurance Requirements


Liability Insurance Minimum Requirements

People often wonder just how much auto insurance they have to carry. The answer depends on where you live. The specific types and amounts of required coverage vary from one state to another. Keep in mind that the figures given in the table below only represent required minimums. In many cases it will be in your best interest to purchase coverage above and beyond the minimums (including collision and comprehensive) so that you're adequately protected. With bodily injury liability, for instance, most insurance professionals recommend that your coverage limits be $100,000 per person and $300,000 per accident.
