“Although New York doesn’t have the highest car insurance rates for full coverage, it does have some of the highest rates for minimum liability insurance, totaling an average of almost $1,300 annually.
However, you should never settle for state-minimum liability (25/50/10), as it only covers:
- $25,000 in bodily injury liability per person
- $50,000 in bodily injury liability per accident
- $10,000 in property damage liability per accident
Realistically, you should consider the cost of hospital care and the types of cars in your area. With this in mind, you might want to get a 250/500/250 policy to cover you in case of an accident.
If you want to save money on car insurance, the Jerry app is a good place to start. A licensed broker, Jerry does all the hard work of finding the cheapest quotes from the top name-brand insurance companies and buying new car insurance. Jerry will even cancel your old policy for you.”
