Maryland car insurance coverage your policy must have
Maryland law requires drivers to have bodily injury and property damage liability coverage. When buying Maryland auto insurance coverage, you’ll need a policy with at least the required state minimum amount, which is $20,000/$40,000/$15,000. This means in the event of an accident, if you are at fault, you may be covered up to $20,000 per person with a total maximum of $40,000 per incident. It also may cover up to $15,000 in property damage coverage per accident.
- Property damage coverage safeguards your assets if you are found responsible for a covered accident. It may cover damage you cause to the property of another party.
- Bodily injury coverage safeguards your assets if you’re found responsible for a covered accident, including certain expenses associated with bodily harm sustained by the other party.
Liability coverage also provides for your legal defense expenses if you are sued as a result of a covered accident.
Protects you in the event of an accident where the other party is at-fault and either doesn’t carry insurance or is underinsured.
- Bodily injury protects you if you’re involved in an accident and the other party is at-fault and either is uninsured or doesn’t carry enough insurance to cover costs related to your bodily injury damages.
- Property damage protects you if you’re involved in an accident where the other party is at-fault and uninsured/underinsured for damages sustained to your vehicle and other covered property.
Personal Injury Protection (PIP)
PIP covers medical, hospital, and disability benefits without regard to fault. This coverage can be waived for certain persons under Maryland law by signature on the proper form.
Maryland auto insurance coverage that’s smart to have
It’s often a good idea to add the following coverages to your policy so you can enjoy the security of being protected on the road:
This type of Maryland auto insurance coverage is used to repair your vehicle when physical damage occurs from non-collision related incidents (subject to deductible). Such incidents include theft, fire, vandalism, glass breakage, and contact with animals.
Collision coverage is used to repair your vehicle when physical damage occurs from collision with another vehicle or object (subject to deductible).
May cover necessary medical expenses for you and other persons, who are covered under your vehicle’s policy in the event of an accident, regardless of who is at fault (as provided by your policy and state law). In your policy, this may be referred to as Medical Payments, Medical Expenses, Medical Benefits or Basic Personal Injury Protection.
