Bill proposes raising liability limits for car insurance
The General Assembly has a bill pending that would raise the liability limits on car insurance for the first time since 1983. This would increase the amount of money a car owner can get from their insurance for damages.
The current limits are $5,000 for property damage, $15,000 for the bodily injury or death of one person and $30,000 for two or more people.
The bill would double each of the caps to compensate for inflation, which has more than doubled the cost of things like medical bills or lost wages.
Rep. Bryon Short, Democrat of Brandywine Hundred, introduced the bill.
