Louisiana Liability Insurance RequirementLouisiana requires liability insurance for the same reason that all other states require it. The law is there to make sure citizens have a reasonable chance to be reimbursed for damage to their property and or injury and death from the at-fault driver in an accident. One of the requirements that society places on the privilege to operate a motor vehicle on our roads is that you have the ability to pay for the damage you cause in the operation of that vehicle. You make this guarantee by purchasing liability insurance to cover your mistakes.

Insurance liability is found in different scenarios, but for this example I will use Auto Insurance liability. Most automobile lenders require anyone with an auto loan to have insurance liability. This means if you cause an accident while operating your vehicle, you may be made liable to pay the costs of damages and medical bills. While insurance liability is a good thing to have, especially if you are the one who is the victim of an accident, it can also be a costly, though necessary thing to have.

If you have liability for an accident, you will need to contact your insurance company. If you do not have liability insurance, you may need to pay for the accident out of pocket.

Auto insurance coverages fall into some broad categories. They are, in general, Medical Payments, Collision, Comprehensive, Liability (Bodily Injury and Property Damage), Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist, Rental Car, and, if you live in a no-fault state, Personal Injury Protection (PIP). BODILY INJURY LIABILTY INSURANCE. All states require bodily injury liability insurance, except for Florida (a no-fault state) and New Hampshire. As of June 1, 2010, Wisconsin now also requires bodily injury liability insurance. PROPERTY DAMAGE LIABILITY INSURANCE. Property damage liability coverage addresses the costs of damages to the other driver's vehicle or property should you be involved and found at-fault for an auto accident. Commonly, property damage liability insurance also covers the damage caused by other authorized drivers of your vehicle. Currently, all states require property damage liability insurance.
