What is the maximum you can get for a bodily injury claim in California?

If someone hits me, how much will their liability pay in medical fees if I'm injured?

Answer
“Each car insurance policy has its own coverage limitations.
In California, the minimum amount that bodily injury liability coverage will pay is 15k per person and 30k per accident.
This is relatively low compared to other states, considering the average cost of a bodily injury liability claim is around 15k.
The maximum bodily injury coverage can be quite high. The preferred tier is 100/300, but people often go to 250/500 if they want.
You can go even higher! For example, you can go up to 500k or even one million, though those are most likely custom coverages.
