Mandatory Minimums on Auto Insurance Coverage Coming

The West Virginia General Legislature is currently considering raising the mandatory minimum amounts of auto insurance coverage. The current mandatory minimum requires only $40,000 per accident and $20,000 per person for bodily injuries. The bill as amended by committee would increase that amount to $50,000 per accident and $25,000 per person for bodily injuries. While this bill is a step in the right direction, the proposed new minimums fall substantially short of compensating many of the victims of careless drivers. Please read more here:
