Minimum Car Insurance Requirements

Many people who are injured in a motor vehicle collision often wonder, “Will I be compensated for all my injuries, and the associated pain and suffering?” The quick answer is, it depends. The most important factor in determining whether or not an injured party receives a fair amount of compensation for their injuries, pain and suffering is the limits of the insurance policy that covers the at-fault driver. The “policy limits” of an insurance policy is the maximum amount that can be paid to a claimant for their claim. These limits vary from state to state.
