Illinois car insurance coverage your policy must have
As a resident of Illinois, there are two types of liability coverage your insurance policy must include: property damage and bodily injury.
- Bodily injury safeguards your assets if you’re found legally accountable for a covered accident, including certain expenses associated with bodily harm sustained by the other parties.
- Property damage safeguards your assets if you are found legally responsible for a covered accident. It covers certain damage you may cause to the property or vehicle of another party.
When you buy Illinois car insurance coverage, you’ll need at least the required state minimum amount: $20,000/$40,000/$15,000. In the event of a covered accident, your limits for bodily injury are $20,000 per person, with a total maximum of $40,000 per incident. It also covers up to $15,000 for damage to another person’s property.
Liability coverage also provides for your legal defense expenses if you are sued as a result of a covered accident.
