Basic car insurance requirements in Illinois

States generally fall into two categories when it comes to insurance: “fault states” and “no-fault states”. Illinois is considered an “at-fault” state, which means that drivers will be responsible for all costs of the accidents they cause. All drivers in the state are required by law to have liability insurance and uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage:

  1. Social responsibility insurance  is coverage that will help you pay for physical or third-party property damage resulting from an accident you caused. There are two types of coverage: physical and property damage.
  2. Uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage  will take care of medical expenses for any injuries you or your passengers sustain if you have an accident with an uninsured or underinsured driver.

It is important to remember that liability insurance will not cover your own costs for physical or property damage. Also, uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage does not include property damage.

There are also additional coverage options in Illinois, which include collision insurance, comprehensive, medical payment, uninsured motorist property damage coverage, among others.

What are the coverage minimums for auto insurance in Illinois?
