Car Insurance Laws in Louisiana

MoneyGeek has all the resources you need on Louisiana car insurance laws and requirements. The state of Louisiana requires that your car insurance policy include the following liability insurance coverages:

  • $15,000 for bodily injury per person
  • $30,000 for bodily injury per accident
  • $25,000 for property damage per accident

In Louisiana, the state minimum coverage can only protect you up to these financial limits. Comprehensive and collision insurance is not required in Louisiana, so it's crucial to figure out how much coverage you need to be protected in any situation, including an at-fault accident.
