Readers should know that the type of car they own isn’t the most influential factor in how much they pay for their insurance. As a matter of fact, your risk profile as a driver is the chief factor driving up your insurance costs. For example, if you had a previous moving violation or you filed an insurance claim in the last few years, you will pay a lot more for insurance than if you didn’t have those two negative marks on your record. The amount your monthly premiums will increase from those types of factors will influence your final bill significantly more than the type of car you drive.
What’s the Minimum Amount of Car Insurance I Need in Long Beach?
If you live in Long Beach, the state of California imposes minimum auto insurance requirements on you. This is to make sure that, if you get into an accident, you have enough coverage to pay for any damages you cause. States require most drivers to have liability and property coverage. For California, these are the minimum requirements:
- $15,000 for injury/death to one person.
- $30,000 for injury/death to more than one person.
- $5,000 for damage to property.
While that is the bare minimum insurance someone living in Long Beach is required to have, we recommend drivers get more if they can afford to. As a matter of fact, you should have enough liability insurance coverage to cover your total net worth. This is so you can be protected in the event of a lawsuit resulting from a car accident. While increasing your coverage limits might increase your car insurance quote by a hundred dollars per year, it may cause you to save thousands of dollars in the future.
