The minimum liability insurance requirements for private passenger vehicles in Pennsylvania are as follows:
Bodily injury liability coverage protects drivers if their car is involved in an accident that harms another individual. The minimum limits required by Pennsylvania state law are $15,000 for the death or injury of a single victim as a result of a car accident and $30,000 for the deaths or injuries of multiple victims. Insurance companies list this type of coverage as 15/30, referring to the dollar limitations of each minimum. In the case of an accident, liability coverage can aid perpetrators with costs involved in a legal proceeding as a result of a crash. Bodily injury coverage is part of the minimum coverage required by Pennsylvania law.
The state minimum amount of property damage liability coverage required in the state of Pennsylvania is $5,000. If an insured driver is determined to be at fault and held liable in a motor vehicle accident, this coverage pays for damage repair to another individual’s property. Property damage coverage will also pay for legal costs if an insured driver is involved in a lawsuit following an accident.
The minimum requirements in Pennsylvania include $5,000 first-party benefits towards medical expenses per accident. Insurance companies offer higher limits of up to $100,000 per accident.
Pennsylvania is the only state in the country that requires “first-party benefits coverage.” These benefits act as coverage in an accident regardless of fault.
