Like the 38 other at-fault states, Arizona holds the driver who caused the accident financially responsible for any property damage, medical bills, lost wages, or additional associated costs suffered by the other driver. The minimum amount of acceptable coverage consists of $25,000 for bodily injury to one person and $50,000 for injuries to two or more persons, plus $15,000 for property damage in a single accident. Our highly-qualified agents at Oakley Insurance Group in Tucson, AZ, will help you find the right policy for your needs at a price you can afford.
