In Louisiana, all motorists are required to carry liability coverage that will cover medical expenses and related costs for anyone involved in a car accident. In spite of this, some people do not carry liability insurance or carry so little that it will not cover all of the damages arising from an accident.

A Louisiana motorist also has the option of purchasing additional uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage, including options that cover bodily injury and damaged property. Opting to include uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage can protect the insured from motorists who don’t carry enough insurance, or who don’t carry any at all.
