It depends on your particular situation. At a minimum, drivers must carry bodily injury and property damage liability coverage at the state mandated limits to cover vehicle and property damage, injury-related expenses and legal fees for other people involved in an accident you cause.

It is important to carefully consider your specific circumstances, including your risk tolerance and budget, then work with your insurance representative to create a policy that addresses your needs.
