By law, every Alaskan motorist must purchase and maintain liability coverage. This coverage is applicable when you are held responsible for an auto accident which results in injury to a person or persons. It provides funds for accident-related medical expenses, pain and suffering, and lost wages. The following are the minimum amounts required by the State of Alaska:

  • $50,000 total for bodily injury coverage, per person
  • $100,000 total for bodily injury coverage, per accident
  • $25,000 total for property damage, per accident

It’s important to remember that these amounts are the minimum required by law. Most insurance experts recommend that you consider purchasing higher amounts of coverage to protect yourself financially. If you are found at fault in an accident and are sued, only having the minimum amount of coverage can leave you personally responsible for additional expenditures such as court costs, lawyer fees, as well as related damages and claims.

You can rely on a professional insurance agent to give you sound, practical advice with regards to choosing auto insurance coverage amounts. In addition, an agent can answer any other questions or concerns you may have regarding your auto insurance needs and costs.
