Colorado Car Insurance Requirements

Did you know that you're required to have insurance of at least $25,000 for an individual injury, $50,000 total for all injuries and $15,000 for property damage? It's a great core amount of coverage to have, but if you have an accident and you have only these limits, you could be forced to pay for medical bills and car repairs out of pocket. An agent can explain why and how coverage with higher limits gives you an extra layer of protection.
