One of the worst conversations that I have with someone who has been severely injured is telling them the person who harmed them has a minimum policy. I wish lawmakers had to tell folks with tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars that the most they’ll receive from the person who wronged them is $20,000. And all of that money will go to repay medical bills.
Here are the lowest CT Auto Insurance Policies:
1. $20,000 for injury to or death of a person,
2. $40,000 for injury to or death of more than one person in any accident, and
3. $10,000 for property damage (CGS §§ 38a-335 and 14-112(a)).
It’s just wrong. In today’s world a single ER trip can cost $20,000. The legislature should raise the minimum policy to at least $50,000/$100,000.
