Frequently Asked Questions Regarding Delaware Auto Insurance
What is Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist cover?
Coverage which protects you and the people in your car in the event another driver hits you with inadequate insurance coverage or no auto insurance at all.
What is Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and who does it cover?
PIP is insurance coverage for medical and other expenses, such as wage loss and funeral expenses, which result from an auto accident, no matter who is at fault. The law requires you to have PIP coverage.
PIP covers the person who is named on the policy, household residents related by blood, marriage or adoption, and step- or foster children. It also covers non-family passengers and pedestrians involved in the accident.
What if you are currently driving without coverage?
Violators in Delaware driving without insurance coverage are subject to a fine of $1,500 for the first offense, $3,000 for subsequent offenses and a six-month suspension of driving privileges. In addition, the DMV audits vehicles for insurance compliance; failure to maintain proper insurance may result in fines and ultimately a suspended license.
