How much auto coverage do I need?
Nearly every state requires a minimum amount of liability coverage. But you may want more than this since some accidents may cost more than the minimum limits. If you're found legally responsible for bills that are more than your insurance covers, you will have to pay the difference out of your own pocket. These costs could wipe you out!
The Insurance Information Institute (I.I.I.) recommends that you have $100,000 of bodily injury protection per person and $300,000 per accident. If your net worth is more than $300,000, consider buying additional liability insurance.
In addition to liability coverage, consider buying collision and comprehensive coverage. Your coverage reflects the market value of your car and the cost of repairing it.
