Like almost every other state in the union, New York has auto insurance requirements for drivers. It has to do with protecting other drivers from you. That requires liability coverage. At L & S Agency Inc. in Buffalo, NY, our award-winning agents place the needs of our clients first and work with you to make sure that you have the auto insurance that you need at a price you can live with.
The minimum required auto insurance in New York is $10,000 in property damage, $25,000 for the first bodily injury and double that if it results in death. $50,000 for the entire accident in bodily injury, and $100,000 if there are multiple deaths.
If you have an auto loan or a lease, you will have additional requirements. You will be required to have collision and comprehensive coverage to protect your vehicle. Collision coverage will pay for repairs or for the replacement of your vehicle if you are the responsible party in an accident or if you are the only driver in an accident. Comprehensive coverage is for things that might damage your vehicle which are beyond your control. Things like hail and other weather-related damage, glass coverage, vandalism, and theft of your vehicle.
You may want to have collision and comprehensive coverage even if it is not required. If like most people, you count on your vehicle to perform your daily activities, you need it to get repaired in the event it is damaged. Unless you can afford to do this easily out of pocket, you need insurance to help.
