Most Maryland drivers have liability insurance. Liability insurance covers expenses associated with property damage or an bodily injury. Maryland law requires drivers to carry a certain amount of coverage for these types of insurance. Maryland requires drivers to carry a minimum of $30,000 per person, and $60,000 per accident for bodily injury claims. The minimum coverage for property damage is $15,000.
You are required, under Maryland law, to carry liability, UM and PIP, but the other insurance options are up to you.
Uninsured motorist (UM)
If you were injured in an accident by a driver that didn’t have insurance, then your uninsured motorist insurance would cover your harms and losses.
Underinsured motorist (UIM)
If you were injured in an accident by a driver that didn’t have enough insurance to cover your harms and losses, then your underinsured motorist insurance would make the difference.
Personal Injury Protection (PIP)
PIP pays medical bills and reimbursement of lost wages regardless of fault. Typically, people carry $2,500.00 in PIP insurance. You should always carry PIP insurance and never waive it.
Medpay is like PIP insurance, it covers medical expenses. This coverage is optional in Maryland.
Collision insurance is an option that covers the expenses for your damaged car.
Comprehensive insurance is an option that covers things like your car being stolen, or a tree falling on your parked car.
