Is Utah a no-fault state?

Yes. Utah has been a no-fault state since 1974, according to the Insurance Information Institute. As a no-fault state, Utah requires drivers to carry PIP coverage so that their own insurance covers some or all of their medical expenses after a car accident, regardless of who's at fault. No-fault car insurance also restricts the right to sue only to lawsuits that involve severe injuries.

Additional car insurance coverages to consider

If you're leasing or financing a vehicle, most lenders require you to carry comprehensive auto coverage and collision coverage in addition to Utah's state-required coverages. Comprehensive and collision pay to repair or replace your car regardless of fault, if it's in an accident, gets stolen, or is otherwise damaged due to a covered accident. It also makes sense to add these physical damage coverages if you're not sure you can afford a new car or major repairs after an accident.
