|Rank||Insurer||Premiums underwritten||Complaint index|

The lower the complaint index figure, the better the company performed relative to its peers.
Minimum auto insurance requirements in Oregon
As in almost every state, Oregonians have to abide by a minimum required amount of auto insurance. Oregon is unique in that it is not a no-fault state, but it does require drivers to carry personal injury protection (PIP) insurance, as well as the following minimum coverage requirements:
- $25,000 per person/ $50,000 per accident of bodily injury liability insurance
- $20,000 property damage liability insurance
- $25,000 per person/ $50,000 per accident of uninsured motorist bodily injury insurance
- $15,000 personal injury protection (PIP)
While your car insurance policy may meet Oregon's minimum requirements, it may not offer the best protection suited to your needs.
We recommend that all Oregon drivers consider opting in for higher liability coverage limits. If you are in an especially costly accident, minimum coverage may not be enough to fully cover the damages and you may have to pay out-of-pocket.
