Who pays if the accident wasn't my fault?
The driver who caused the accident, of course.
Drivers without insurance have no financial backup plan for accidents. Other drivers on the road become financially responsible for an uninsured driver’s mistakes.
5.9% of North Dakota drivers are uninsured.
That's where “uninsured motorist coverage” comes in. It pays for things like medical bills and vehicle damage if you’re hit by an uninsured driver.
And it offers a great deal of peace of mind, too.
North Dakota requires all drivers to have a minimum amount of uninsured motorist coverage.
What Affects the Cost of North Dakota Auto Insurance?
The average car insurance payment you might expect to pay will be based on several personal factors, such as the following and more.
- your age
- your ZIP code
- your driving history
- the kind of car you drive
- the number of cars and drivers in your household
The type of car you drive is one of the biggest factors. Insurance companies charge less for cars that they think are less risky for drivers.
If, for example, you drive a family sedan or a used minivan, you likely will pay less for insurance than someone who drives an expensive luxury vehicle.
Here are some city factors that will affect your rate:
Commute Time: The more time you spend on the road, the more likely it is that you'll be in an accident.
