Why you need auto insurance in New Jersey
Despite the potentially high cost of car insurance, insuring your vehicle is mandatory in New Jersey but it also protects more than you think.
First, the majority of states have compulsory liability insurance requirements which means it is punishable by state law to not carry specific minimum amounts of liability in order to license the vehicle. In New Jersey these limits are 15/30/5 which means you must have $15,000 of bodily injury coverage per person, $30,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and $5,000 of property damage coverage.
Second, if your vehicle has a lienholder, almost every bank will make it mandatory that you have insurance to ensure the loan is repaid in case of a total loss. If you let the policy lapse, the bank may buy a policy for your vehicle for a much higher rate and require you to fork over for it.
Third, insurance safeguards both your assets and your vehicle. It will also cover medical transport and hospital expenses incurred in an accident. Liability insurance also pays for attorney fees and expenses if you are sued as the result of your driving. If your vehicle suffers damage from an accident or hail, your policy will cover the damage repairs after a deductible is paid.
The benefits of insuring your vehicle are without a doubt worth the cost, particularly when you have a large claim. According to a 2015 survey, the average American driver is overpaying more than $850 per year so shop around every year to be sure current rates are still competitive.
