Coverage Limits in New York

As a driver in New York, you are required to have limited coverage for auto insurance. If you fail to maintain the minimum automobile liability insurance coverage, you, can have your driver’s license and registration suspended. The limited liability coverage is supposed to protect you if you are at fault in an accident.

In New York, drivers must maintain minimum coverage of:

  • $10,000 for property damage in a single collision
  • $25,000 for bodily injury for a person in a single collision
  • $50,000 for death for a person in a single collision
  • $50,000 for bodily injury for two or more people in a single collision
  • $100,000 for death for two or more people in a single collision

The Perecman Firm, P.L.L.C. is well aware that if you are involved in an accident, finding ways to recover damages can be daunting.

Who Pays Compensation?

Knowing your options is absolutely critical after an accident with an underinsured or uninsured driver. There are some coverage options such as supplemental underinsured motorist and uninsured motorist coverage. This can be added as part of your insurance policy to help cover the difference in the damages if the at-fault driver’s insurance isn’t adequate enough to pay for the expenses. This is the best option for you to make sure you are taken care of in the event of an accident.
