Yes. In Connecticut, in order to legally operate a car, that car must be insured. The lowest amount of insurance permitted is $20,000.00. But more can and should be purchased. Generally, the lowest amount of insurance, $20,000.00, in not enough insurance to carry because even a minor injury can lead to medical bills and other losses that a very high. Many people carry more insurance than the minimum. But, unfortunately, many people carry $20,000.00.
I recommend at least three times your annual pay for liability coverage, and double that number for underinsured/uninsured motorist coverage. For example, if you earn $40,000.00 over a year, then you should have no less than $120,000.00 in liability coverage, and $240,000.00 in underinsured/uninsured motorist coverage.
