In Washington, you need $25,000 in bodily injury coverage per person ($50,000 per accident). Bodily injury liability insurance pays for other people's injuries after a car accident that you cause, and it can also cover your legal fees if you are sued after a crash.
In addition to bodily injury liability insurance, drivers in Washington need to purchase $10,000 in property damage liability insurance. Property damage liability coverage pays for damage to others' property after an accident caused by the policyholder.
Together, these Washington liability insurance requirements are often written as 25/50/10. Even though Washington only requires 25/50/10 in liability insurance, it's a good idea to purchase more coverage if you can afford it. Buying higher coverage limits can protect you financially if you cause a serious accident.
