Liabilty insurance coverage for car accidents in Madison and St. Clair Counties is mandatory and the minimum limits may go higher if Illinois Governor Pat Quinn approves legislation that's already been passed in the House and Senate.
Presently, minimum policy limits are $20,000 for the injury of a single individual and $40,000 for the injuries of two or more people.
The bill before the Governor proposes minimum limits of $25,000 for a single person in a crash, negotiated down from $50,000 as was originally proposed.
Liabiltiy insurance is vital in creating a pool of money available for persons injured in auto accidents to pay for their medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
