What are requirements for car insurance in Alabama?

Alabama's minimum car insurance requirements include liability coverage limits of at least:

  • $25,000 in bodily injury per person
  • $50,000 in total bodily injury per accident
  • $25,000 in property damage per accident

Although these are the minimum coverages required for Alabamans, you may increase your auto liability insurance limits to better protect your assets.

Comprehensive and collision coverage can add extra protection

If you're leasing or financing your vehicle, your lender typically requires comprehensive and collision coverage. But even if you own your car outright, adding these coverages can help pay to repair or replace a damaged, vandalized or stolen vehicle.
