State requirements in Pennsylvania
What are the minimum auto insurance requirements in Pennsylvania?
Pennsylvania drivers are required to carry both no-fault (also called medical) and Liability insurance. PA is a no-fault state, which means your car insurance carrier will help pay for any medical bills that result from a car accident for you and your passengers, regardless of who’s at fault. We make it easy to customize your coverage in our app, and will let you know what coverage is required for Pennsylvania.
The point of no-fault insurance is to limit civil suits, so you have two options when purchasing medical benefits:
Limited right to sue—allows you to sue only for all medical costs (not pain and suffering, unless the injury is severe) that result from a car accident. This option is cheaper for car insurance in PA.
Full tort right to sue—allows you to sue for both medical costs and pain and suffering, with unrestricted rights. This option raises your insurance premium and will be more expensive than the first option.
Liability coverage helps to pay for Property Damage or Bodily Injuries that occur from a car accident you cause.
Minimum liability insurance in PA:
$15,000 (per person, per accident for Bodily Injury)
$30,000 total (per accident for Bodily Injury)
$5,000 Property Damage
