- $25,000 of bodily injury liability for one person in one accident.
- $50,000 of bodily injury liability for everyone injured in one accident.
- $25,000 of property damage liability for one accident.
Of course these are minimum amounts, and as a driver you may agree to purchase more insurance to protect your financial liability should you be involved in significant Georgia accident.
