Minimum Car Insurance Requirements in PA

All motor vehicles operated or parked on Pennsylvania roadways are required to be insured. Proof of insurance must be carried in your car at all times and must available when:

  • Requested by law enforcement
  • Renewing vehicle registration
  • The vehicle is involved in a car accident

The minimum liability insurance requirements for private passenger vehicles in Pennsylvania are as follows:

  • $15,000 per person/$30,000 per accident for Bodily Injury (BI)

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.

  • $5,000/accident for Property Damage (PD)

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.

  • $5,000/accident for Medical Benefits (PIP)

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.
