Every driver in Puyallup and Shelton must carry minimum levels of liability coverage to comply with Washington law. Liability insurance is designed to help pay for costs associated with damages and injuries to other parties involved in an accident that you cause. Drivers who do not purchase insurance or who have insufficient coverage can be subject to a minimum fine of $450.
Washington Auto Insurance Minimum Requirements
- $25,000 for bodily injury per person
- $50,000 total for injuries per accident
- $10,000 for property damage
Remember, these are simply the minimum requirements for Puyallup and Shelton drivers. You may wish to purchase more substantial liability coverage for increased protection.
Optional coverage can be added to your auto insurance policy to further protect both you and your vehicle. Coverage that can enhance your policy includes uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage, collision coverage, comprehensive coverage, roadside assistance/towing coverage, rental car coverage, loan/lease gap coverage, and more. Two of the most common additions to an auto insurance policy are collision coverage and comprehensive coverage.
The coverage required on your Washington auto insurance policy is meant to pay for damage or injury to others. This coverage does not extend to you or your vehicle. Collision coverage will pay for damage you were to cause to your own vehicle. Your bank or lender may to require that you purchase a certain level of collision coverage if you are financing or leasing a vehicle. It may make sense to decrease collision coverage or remove it from your policy entirely if your vehicle has depreciated substantially.
Damage can occur to your vehicle even if you’re not on the road. Comprehensive coverage will take care of damage to your vehicle caused by various external factors including vandalism, fire, theft, natural disaster, and similar non-collision related damage. As with collision coverage, you should consider the age and condition of your vehicle when deciding on comprehensive coverage.
