The state minimum auto insurance coverage in California
|Bodily Injury Per Person||$15,000||Each person you injured in an accident that you cause would receive $15,000, up to your policy limit.|
|Bodily Injury Per Accident||$30,000||The maximum your insurance would pay out for an accident you caused. At state minimums, this would cover 2 people in the other car. Anything above this limit would need to be paid out of pocket.|
|Property Damage Per Accident||$5,000||The maximum your insurance company would pay to cover damage to the other driver’s vehicle in an accident.|
Other types of auto insurance you can add to your policy are:
Uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage is only required in some states, but it will protect you if you get into an accident with a motorist without the proper insurance coverage. Uninsured or underinsured motorists can end up costing you due to another driver’s negligence.
Collision coverage will help pay for damages to your car in the event that your car hits another vehicle or an object, such as a building or guard rail.
Comprehensive coverage will cover damage to your car that isn’t caused by an accident, such as a vandalism or theft. It also covers fire, weather damage, and animal collisions.
Medical payments help pay for you or your passengers if they get hurt in an accident in your vehicle.
Personal Injury Protection will help with costs beyond medical in the event of an accident. It will help pay for medical expenses, work loss, and even funeral costs.
