Required Auto Insurance in Indiana

Unlike many states, Indiana drivers are required by law to carry multiple types of Auto Insurance policies, as opposed to just one. First and foremost, all Indianans must purchase Liability Insurance, which is designed to protect fellow drivers from owing significant costs in the event that they are victimized in an auto accident. Liability policies carry mandatory minimum amounts for which each driver must be insured. In addition, the state is proactively addressing the issue of uninsured drivers by mandating the purchase of Uninsured and Underinsured Motorist Coverage (which is usually written as a single policy). That way, drivers who are hurt in an accident caused by a driver who doesn't have adequate (or any) insurance will be covered by their own policies.

  • BI or Bodily Injury: $25,000 per person, $50,000 per accident

Optional Coverage in Indiana

Despite the extensive insurance obligations written into Indiana law, it's not uncommon for drivers to feel like they need more coverage to feel sufficiently protected from anything that may befall them while on the roads. For drivers, there are several types of optional policies that they can choose to add to their Auto Insurance policy for better peace of mind and the assurance that they will not be burdened by unexpected financial burdens stemming from auto-related mishaps.

Below are some examples you may want to consider:

  • Collision Coverage*: If you are driving along and strike a wall, tree or other obstacle, you'll have to fix your vehicle using money from your own pocket. But if you have Collision coverage, your policy will pay for the repairs to your car, up to your policy limits. This will help ensure that you aren't stuck without a working vehicle for long periods of time.
  • Comprehensive Coverage*: Your car doesn't have to be in a collision in order to suffer damage. Vandalism, fire and Indiana weather events can often render a vehicle unusable. Comprehensive Auto Insurance coverage protects you from the consequences of any non-collision incident, including auto theft.
  • Higher Bodily Injury Limits: If you cause injury in a collision involving more than one vehicle or passenger, medical bills for the victims can exceed $50,000 fairly easily. For that reason, you should consider raising the limits for bodily injury payments on your Liability coverage. Otherwise, the victims can come after your personal assets for anything that your insurance doesn't cover.
  • Higher Property Damage Limits: If another vehicle is totaled because of an accident that you caused, then the state-mandated minimum of $10,000 probably won’t cover the replacement value of the totaled vehicle. Buying a policy with higher limits for Property Damage can protect you from financial hardships caused by this type of scenario.

*Although Collision coverage and Comprehensive coverage are not required by law, they may be required in your car loan or lease contract with the lender.

There's no obligation to purchase any of these optional coverages before taking to the roadways of Indiana. But they may not be as costly to add to your policy as you think! If you believe that having one or more of these optional policies is in your best interest, contact an AIS agent for more information.
