Car Insurance Requirements in Hamtramck, Michigan
All car owners in the Wolverine State are required to maintain liability insurance, uninsured motorist coverage and personal injury protection—and these restrictions apply in Hamtramck as well. In Michigan, the minimum car requirements are:
- Bodily Injury Liability Coverage: $20,000 per person/$40,000 per accident
- Property Damage Liability Coverage: $10,000 per accident
- Uninsured/Underinsured Motorists Bodily Injury (UMBI/UIMBI): $25,000 per person / $50,000 per accident
- Personal Injury Protection (PIP): Until full recovery (no longer needing rehab)
- Property Protection Insurance (PPI): $1M per accident
Keep in mind that these are just the state-required minimums. If your vehicle was stolen or damaged in a noncollision, such as if it was dented by hail, the cost would not be covered by a car insurance policy that only meets Michigan's minimum requirements. Instead, you would need comprehensive and collision insurance which covers your vehicle if it is stolen or damaged due to a wider set of circumstances.
Drivers are also required to have proof of auto insurance either on your person or in your car at all times when operating a vehicle in Hamtramck. Failure to provide this proof to a police officer may result in fines and suspension of your license.
