Kentucky Auto Insurance
Kentucky has more miles of running water in any other state, except Alaska. It also has tons of beautiful natural landscapes that are worth driving hundreds of miles to explore. That means hours on the road and many opportunities for the unexpected to happen. That is why auto insurance is a mandatory purchase in Kentucky and why AIS is the Auto Insurance Specialist you should go to!
Required Kentucky Auto Insurance
Car insurance is a mandatory purchase in Kentucky. According to the Insurance Research Council, there is an estimated 18% of drivers in Kentucky that are not insured; that’s about 1 in 5 drivers on the road. Without insurance, you are liable to pay out-of-pocket for any damages that you cause with your car. That is why Kentucky requires you to have a minimum of Bodily Injury Liability coverage and Property Damage Liability Insurance to help with financial costs associated with an accident.
State Minimum Liability Coverage in Kentucky
The minimum of liability coverage on your auto insurance policy allows you to legally drive on the roads of Kentucky. Your Auto Insurance must have liability coverage with these minimum amounts:
- BI or Bodily Injury: $25,000 per person; $50,000 for 2 people or more in an accident
- PD or Property Damage: $10,000 per accident
Personal Injury Protection
Kentucky mandates that all auto insurance policies include PIP coverage. This coverage will pay for your own or your passenger’s injuries. No matter who was at fault in the accident, this coverage helps with accident related injuries.
- Personal Injury Protection: $10,000 per person, per accident
When you purchase PIP insurance, it limits your right to sue or be sued. Someone who was injured in the accident cannot sue the other party for recovery of the following damages:
- Medical Expenses
- Loss of Wages
- Pain and Suffering
- Other related costs
Optional Coverage in Kentucky to Consider
Even with the minimum coverages required by Kentucky, you may still not have enough coverage in an accident or for other incidents that cause car-related damages or injuries. The following coverages are optional and worth considering when buying an auto insurance policy in Kentucky:
- Collision - This gives you financial protection when your car becomes damaged by a collision with another vehicle or object.
- Comprehensive - This covers you when your car is damaged by something other than a collision. These covered causes may include: fire, vandalism, theft, or flood.
- Underinsured/ Uninsured Motorists - If you are involved in an accident with an underinsured or uninsured motorist, this coverage will pay for injuries to you or your passengers. (or if you are a victim of a hit-and-run accident)
