Liability Auto Insurance
Vehicles are required to have liability coverage in Idaho. The state mandates two types of liability coverage with three different coverage amounts to be included in the policy. The state requires both bodily injury or death liability as well as property damage liability. An amount is required for one person injured or killed in an auto accident. A higher amount is required for everyone who becomes injured. In addition, there is an amount required for property damage liability. All these coverage types pay for damages for third parties, not for you or anyone in your vehicle.
Uninsured Motorist Insurance
The state also mandates that the auto policy must have coverage for uninsured motorists, though this requirement can be waived in writing. This coverage pays for your injuries and damages if you are in an accident with a motorist without insurance. The amount of this coverage has to be the same as the amount of bodily injury liability. The amounts of all these coverage types, as required by law, are relatively low when looking at other states. That’s why it’s generally recommended that you get higher coverage than is required. The state minimum amount may not be enough for a serious accident.
