Liability insurance covers bodily injury and property damage claims resulting from an accident that is primarily your fault. The limits in your policy are the maximum amounts your insurance company will pay for bodily injury and property damage claims. They are typically expressed as three amounts separated by slashes written as 25/50/25 or 25,000/50,000/25,000
Alabama’s Financial Responsibility law requires you to maintain liability limits of at least:
The first number is the maximum amount that your policy will pay for bodily injury to or death of one person in any one accident
The maximum amount that your policy will pay for bodily injury to or death of two or more persons in any one accident, subject to the $25,000 per person limit.
The maximum amount that your policy will pay for damage to or destruction of property of others in an accident.
Under Alabama law, you are required to provide documentary proof of Financial Responsibility when registering your vehicle or at the request of law enforcement officials.
Insurance companies are required to notify the Alabama Department of Insurance Commissioner whenever a policy is issued, cancels or non-renews. The Department will then request verification of coverage from you.
If you are unable to produce proof of liability coverage when requested, the penalties can be harsh, ranging from first offense penalties of suspension of vehicle registration and driver’s license and those penalties associated with a Class C misdemeanor.
In addition to these statutory penalties, if you cannot show proof of financial responsibility, fail to pay a judgment entered against you for damages resulting from an automobile accident, or need to reinstate your license after conviction for certain types of violations, you will be required to obtain an SR-22 Certificate of Financial Responsibility.
