Rhode Island car insurance coverage your policy must have
As a resident of Rhode Island, there are two types of liability coverage your insurance policy must include: property damage and bodily injury.
- 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.
- Bodily injury safeguards your assets if you’re found legally responsible for a covered accident, including certain expenses associated with bodily harm sustained by the other parties.
The minimum amount of Rhode Island auto insurance coverage is $25,000/$50,000/$25,000. In the event of a covered accident, your limits for bodily injury are $25,000 per person, with a total maximum of $50,000 per incident. It also covers up to $25,000 for damage to another person’s property.
Liability coverage also provides for your legal defense if a lawsuit is brought against you as a result of a covered accident.
Rhode Island 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 Rhode Island 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).
Protects you in the event of an accident where the other party is at-fault and either doesn’t carry insurance or is underinsured.
- Property damage helps pay for property damage to your vehicle that you are legally entitled to from another driver who is not insured or underinsured (subject to deductible). Property damage coverage is mandatory on policies that don’t have collision coverage unless you reject it in writing.
- Bodily injury helps pay for damages due to bodily injury that you and other passengers of your vehicle are legally entitled to from another driver who is not insured or is underinsured.
Covers reasonable medical expenses and essential services for you and others in the event of an accident, regardless of who is at fault. In your policy this may be referred to as Medical Expenses or Medical Benefits.
