Virginia state minimum car insurance
Virginia requires the following minimum coverage:
- Liability Bodily injury/death of one person – up to a maximum of $25,000
- Liability Bodily injury/death of two or more- persons up to a maximum of $50,000
- Liability Property damage up to a maximum of $20,000 for all damages
- Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist provides liability coverage if you are involved in an accident where you are not at fault and the other party does not have insurance or not enough insurance to cover the damage.
At GLM we do not recommend the minimum coverage. Purchasing the minimum can leave you financially liable personally. Usually for only a few dollars more, you can purchase higher limits and reduce your exposure to a financial catastrophe.
It is important to note that if you are purchasing a vehicle, your finance company may require Collision and Comprehensive (sometimes called Other than Collision) coverage.
How does car insurance work?
Auto insurance protects you against financial loss if you have an accident. It is an agreement between you and the insurance company. You agree to pay the premium (cost for insurance) and the insurance company agrees to pay your losses (the claim) as defined in your policy.
Your auto policy provides liability, property, and medical coverage.
Auto Liability Coverage
This important coverage pays for your legal responsibility to others for bodily injury and/or property damage that you cause as a result of an at-fault accident. This is often one of the most overlooked coverages on an auto insurance policy, but is arguably the most important.
With the soaring costs of medical expenses, surgery, and healthcare, if you are found at-fault for someones injuries, even minor, it could cost you hundreds of thousands of dollars in out-of-pocket costs if you aren’t properly insured.
GLM will help you choose the right coverage limit based on your situation and driving experience.
Property Damage Coverage
Property damage coverage pays for damage to or theft of your car as a result of an accident.
Medical Expense Coverage
Coverage pays the medical expenses for you and your passengers that are a direct result of a car accident.
Coverage pays for damages to your vehicle after an accident.
Coverage pays for damages to your vehicle after a flood, fire, theft, or a collision with an animal. It pays for most damages that result from losses other than collision.
Optional Auto Insurance Coverages
Provides a rental car if your vehicle is inoperable because of a covered loss.
Provided by some carriers, this coverage will provide assistance if your vehicle becomes disabled and you need a tire change, a tow or fuel.
Auto Insurance Discounts in Virginia
There are many discounts available for your auto policy. Here are a few that you might be eligible for:
By getting a quote from GLM at least 7 days before the effective date of your policy, and have no lapse in coverage.
If you have a car insurance policy certain carriers for four years, and you remain accident free for three straight years, they won’t raise your rates because of an accident that happens after this time – even if you’re at fault.
If you “bundle” your auto and home with the same carrier you will receive a discount on your auto policy.
Having a clean driving record for three years will lower your rate.
We offer more discounts including discounts for good students, if you insure more than one vehicle, and even a discount for paying your policy electronically.
