Keeping peace in North Dakota with many car insurance requirements.

Mandatory North Dakota Car Insurance Explained

Bodily Injury Coverage- This North Dakota car insurance coverage pays for medical expenses for other parties that you may cause injury to with your vehicle. The split coverage limits means that the $25,000 is the minimum amount of coverage you can have to cover a single person that you may injure. The $50,000 is the minimum coverage you can have to cover all parties you may injure in an accident.

Property Damage Liability- This North Dakota car insurance coverage compensates the other party for damages that you may do to their property with your vehicle.

Uninsured Motorist- Covers you in the event that you are injured by another party that has no insurance. It works in the same way that bodily injury liability coverage does, in that $25,000 is to cover a single person and $50,000 for all parties. This North Dakota car insurance coverage does not cover damages to your vehicle.

Underinsured Motorist- This North Dakota car insurance coverage works in very much the same way as uninsured motorist; the only difference is that it is for drivers that hit you that don’t have enough insurance. For North Dakota car insurance the coverage for underinsured motorist must match uninsured motorist. This North Dakota car insurance coverage does not cover damages to your vehicle.

Basic no-fault – Known in most states as personal injury protection; it provides you with coverage for medical expenses and other economic losses that you may suffer, from a car accident. This coverage will protect you regardless of who is at fault for the accident you are in.
