Having the right amount of coverage can protect others, if you are found to be liable, and it can protect you if someone else’s negligence was the cause of your accident.
Liability coverage is required for all drivers in Georgia, with these minimum amounts:
- $25,000 property damage;
- $25,000 injury/death of one person; and
- $50,000 injury/death of more than one person.
Although these are the minimum amounts of car insurance coverage required, it is a good idea to carry more. The reason is that if you are found to be liable for an accident and your policy limits are less than the damages, you will be responsible for the difference.
It is also a good idea to find ways you can protect yourself in the event someone else is liable for a car accident. There are 4 types of car insurance that motorists should understand so that a decision can be made as to which types of coverage would be best to carry.
