What are the minimum Washington State car insurance requirements?

Washington State drivers need liability coverage limits of at least:

  • $25,000 in bodily injury per person
  • $50,000 in total bodily injury per accident
  • $10,000 in property damage per accident

Before you get behind the wheel, make sure your liability insurance is enough to cover your overall assets.

Protect your vehicle with comprehensive and collision coverage:

Most lenders in the state will mandate that you carry physical damage coverages. And if your vehicle is paid in full, but holds any significant value, it's still wise to add them. Comprehensive and collision coverage can pay for the repair or replacement of your car if it's in an accident, gets stolen, or is otherwise damaged as a result of a covered incident.
