Louisiana Vehicle Insurance Requirements
Each state is different in their requirements for vehicle insurance. In Louisiana, for instance, drivers must have an insurance policy with minimum coverage amounts. These amounts are as follows:
- $15,000 of bodily injury coverage per person
- $30,000 of bodily injuring coverage per accident
- $25,000 of property damage coverage
In cases of severe property damage or injury, these amounts may not be enough. In these cases, you’re dealing with an uninsured motorist or one with insurance that is insufficient to cover medical costs, lost wages and more.
After an accident occurs, you can’t purchase extra insurance to cover your losses. Instead, you need to hire a professional and dedicated attorney to help you navigate all available sources for proper compensation.
Accident with the Uninsured? It’s Time to Call an Attorney.
Although uninsured motorist and underinsured motorist coverages exist, they can be difficult to understand. As the insured, it can be next to impossible to know what compensation you’re able to receive for your injuries. For this reason, it’s critical to reach out and consult with an attorney as soon as possible after the accident occurs.
