Mississippi Auto Insurance: Laws and Information

In the state of Mississippi all drivers are required to have at least a 10/20/5 liability insurance plan to legally operate a vehicle. This means that there is $10,000 coverage for a person for a single accident, $20,000 for an accident involving an injury to the body, and $5,000 for an accident that causes property damage to the vehicle. The liability coverage will cover anything that happens in an accident to the other driver and their vehicle or other property. You however will only be compensated up to the restrictions of your liability insurance. Any repair costs or other expenses that go beyond your liability insurance will have to be paid out of your own pocket. With all of the repair fees and soaring costs of medical treatment, you may want to look into getting a policy that offers more than just liability insurance. A car accident can be a costly affair and you don’t want to have to pay thousands of dollars.

There are many other options that you can add to your policy through insurance providers. If you are to opt for medical payments coverage, you won’t have to worry about medical bills you may have after getting injured in a motor vehicle accident. This coverage will cover all parties that are involved in the accident. Collision insurance is another option, and this will cover the amount in full that it takes to fix your vehicle after an accident. Lastly you can add comprehensive coverage to your plan, and this will cover you if your vehicle happens to get stolen.

There are two different websites that you can access if you are looking for more information. These websites are the sites of the Mississippi Department of Insurance and the Mississippi State Tax Commission-Motor Vehicle Listing.
