Does Massachusetts have minimum requirements for car insurance?

Yes. Massachusetts car insurance requirements include liability coverage limits of at least:

  • $20,000 in bodily injury liability per person
  • $40,000 in total bodily injury per accident
  • $5,000 in property damage per accident

Auto insurance in Massachusetts also requires personal injury protection (PIP) and uninsured bodily injury coverage (UM BI), with the following minimum limits:

  • PIP: $8,000
  • UM BI: $20,000 per person, $40,000 per accident

PIP can cover medical costs, plus lost wages and death benefits, and pays out even if you're at fault in an accident. UM/UIM BI can cover medical expenses for you and your passengers if you’re in an accident with an uninsured driver.

That's all the minimum coverage you need for your Massachusetts auto insurance policy, but consider increasing your liability limits to better protect your assets.

Get comprehensive and collision coverage for your vehicle

Most lenders require comprehensive and collision coverage if you lease or finance your car. But even if you've paid off your ride, physical damage coverages can be worth carrying if your vehicle is damaged or stolen.
