What are Maine's car insurance requirements?

Car insurance is required in Maine. Drivers must carry minimum liability coverage limits of at least:

  • $50,000 in bodily injury per person
  • $100,000 in total bodily injury per accident
  • $25,000 in property damage per accident

Maine uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage

Maine also requires uninsured/underinsured motorist bodily injury coverage (UM/UIM BI) and medical payments coverage with the following minimum limits:

  • UM/UIM BI: $50,000 per person, $100,000 per accident
  • Medical payments coverage: $2,000 per person

Uninsured motorist coverage covers medical expenses for you and your passengers if a driver with insufficient coverage or no insurance runs into you. Medical payments coverage goes toward any hospital or doctor's bills you or your passengers incur after an accident.

While these represent the minimum required auto insurance in Maine, you may want to consider adding extra car insurance coverage. Increasing your auto liability insurance limits can help protect your assets and provide peace of mind.

Comprehensive and collision coverage protects your vehicle

Most lenders require comprehensive coverage and collision coverage if you lease or finance your car. But even if your ride is fully paid off, comprehensive and collision can be valuable if your vehicle gets stolen, vandalized, or damaged in a covered incident.
