How Minimum Insurance Coverage for Drivers in West Virginia Can Come up Short
Miley Legal Group
If you have been injured in a car accident, you might discover too late that your insurance coverage won’t pay for all your expenses.
In a worst-case scenario, the insurance coverage for drivers in West Virginia likely will not cover your:
- medical bills;
- wages lost during recovery;
- property damage; and
- rehabilitative therapy.
To learn more about your rights, consult a West Virginia personal injury attorney.Mandatory minimum insurance coverage varies from state to state.
In West Virginia, minimum coverage amounts to:
- $20,000 per victim;
- $40,000 per accident; and
- $10,000 for property damages.
If you are injured in an auto accident in which the other driver was not insured, or it was a hit and run, your insurance company will compensate you only up to a limit of $20,000. You will not be compensated for more than that amount if your accident-related costs are higher.
Additionally, if you injured by an underinsured driver (someone who maintains the minimum amount of insurance coverage), your expenses will also only be paid up to $20,000. You may seek a West Virginia attorney to pursue civil action against the uninsured or underinsured party for repayment of your expenses.
