Required Auto Insurance in California

In California, everyone must register their vehicle within 20 days of coming into the state. And it has to be insured at all times. This required insurance includes several different types of insurance coverage for motorists. However, all of the required coverage still leaves some gaps, and many vehicle owners choose to add to the minimum required insurance.

Liability Coverage

Part of the required coverage for vehicles is liability coverage. This includes a required minimum amount of coverage for bodily injury liability for one injured person in an accident that you caused. There is another higher amount required for all of the injured people in an accident that you caused. In addition, there is property damage liability coverage required for damage that you cause to another party’s vehicle or building during an accident. However, all three of these numbers are relatively low, and it’s a good idea to get more coverage than just the bare minimum for liability coverage. 

Uninsured Motorist Coverage

If you were in an accident that a motorist causes without auto insurance, uninsured motorist coverage pays for the resulting bills up to its maximum. This coverage includes a required minimum for each person who is injured in this accident. A higher amount is required for everyone who has a bodily injury from an accident. This coverage also includes a small amount required for property damage when an uninsured motorist causes damage to your property.

Personal Insurance Solutions

At this point of the process, we are ready to look at different insurance solutions that best meet your needs. Some insurance agents only work with one insurance company. They only have of one insurance product to offer you. The problem with that strategy is that if the only tool you have is a hammer, then all the problems you face look like nails.

Home

The cornerstone of home’s protection is a homeowners policy. Homeowners insurance policies typically cover fire. In California the standard homeowners insurance also covers wind and burst pipes. However, most homeowners insurance policies don’t offer protection for external flood, earthquake, landslide or water seepage. When insuring your property, it is very important to have a comprehensive needs based analysis conversation.

Auto

The typical car insurance policy covers your liability, which protects you from lawsuites. Personal injury insures you if someone else is injured by your vehicle. Property Damage protects other vehicles and others property if you cause damage with your vehicle. Comprehensive protects your vehicle from damage other than collision, for example theft and vandalism. Collision protects your auto if it is damaged in an accident.

Health

The Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, has made a lot of changes to the health insurance landscape. Covered California is the new marketplace for people living in California, looking for coverage through Healthcare.gov. We are authorized certified insurance agents with Covered California.

Life
