  • $15,000 per person injured in any one accident and $30,000 for all persons injured in any one accident

Required Minimum Property Damage Coverage

Optional Insurance Coverage

  • Uninsured Motorist (UM) Coverage. UM includes underinsured motorist (UIM) coverage. UM must equal the amount of the bodily injury liability coverage purchased, unless specifically rejected. UM cannot be less than the minimum bodily injury liability insurance required, unless the insured selects “economic only UM coverage.”
