Insurance Coverage
Auto insurance in New York can be divided into two different categories: the coverage that is required to register an automobile and optional protection that can usually be added to a policy. Buying a policy with the minimum amount of protection may appear economical, but after an accident it often pays to have a plan that includes an adequate amount of coverage. In 2010 the NY State Department of Motor Vehicles recorded over 315,000 accidents that ranged in severity and economic impact. A motorist who is involved in an accident where their liability limits are exceeded may end up paying a variety of expenses out-of-pocket. Residents are encouraged to use their resources and shop for a policy that can cover a wide variety of economic situations.

All New York car insurance policies must include specific forms of protection before an automobile can be registered. This includes Personal Injury Protection (PIP), liability coverage, and uninsured motorist protection. Each of these elements has a minimum threshold that must be met to pass the state financial responsibility requirements. The Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV), however, encourages residents to consider the various kinds of optional protection that insurers typically offer. Often an economical way for vehicle owners in the Empire State to improve their coverage is to increase their liability limits. The minimum property damage liability required by the state is set at $10,000, but many motorists can increase this threshold to $25,000 or $50,000 for only a few extra premium dollars.
