Is 25/50/25 liability insurance enough coverage in Louisiana?
I was looking at my auto insurance policy and I noticed that I'm covered only a bit more than the state minimum at 25/50/25. Is that enough coverage for me if I live in Louisiana?
“Louisiana has some of the most expensive car insurance in the country due to a high number of uninsured drivers (15%) and huge numbers of lawsuits.
In light of this, your coverage is probably too low. Moving to at least a 100/300/100 policy might be a better idea so you can protect your assets and income.
In addition, you almost certainly need to add uninsured motorist coverage to your policy. This will help pay for your medical expenses if you’re struck by one of the many Louisiana drivers who get behind the wheel without insurance.”

"What should I do if insurance says they won't cover damage on a stolen vehicle? My friend said I could borrow her insured car while she was out of the country. The car was stolen while I was at work two days ago. It's been recovered, but now she's saying that the damage isn't covered by her insurance."
