Wisconsin State Law Changes

As a Wisconsin resident, you may have heard about the recent changes to automobile insurance laws in the state, but you might not have heard the details of these changes and how they might affect you.

Beginning on June 1, 2010, it will be mandatory to carry liability insurance on all vehicles in the State of Wisconsin. This new requirement will be enforced with up to a $10 fine for failing to carry a copy of your insurance information in your vehicle and up to a $500 fine for failing to obtain liability insurance.

Along with mandatory liability insurance, the following minimum limits for insurance are now required on all policies:

Bodily Injury Liability - $50,000 per person/$100,000 per accident
Property Damage Liability - $15,000 per accident
Uninsured Motorists - $100,000 per person/$300,000 per accident
Underinsured Motorists - $100,000 per person/$300,000 per accident
Medical Payments - $10,000 per accident

If you have any questions about the Wisconsin State law changes, your current coverage or need a copy of your proof of insurance, you should contact your insurance agent.

Please note the above limits listed are minimum limits required by Wisconsin State law and may not be adequate coverage for all situations or circumstances.
