Very Very Important - All Oregonians will want to make sure their automobile policy is technically renewed or issued as close to January 1, 2016 as they can get it done. Why?
Well there was a new law passed this year that goes into effect as of January 1, 2016. Known as Oregon Senate Bill 411, or referred to by us attorneys as the "UIM stacking legislation", this new law will actually improve your auto insurance coverage if your policy is issued or renewed on or after January 1, 2016.
Oregon driver's insurance policies must offer a minimum of:
Bodily injury and property damage liability
$25,000 per person; $50,000 per crash for bodily injury to others; and
$20,000 per crash for damage to others property
State law also requires every motor vehicle liability policy to provide:
Personal injury protection (for reasonable and necessary medical, dental and other expenses
incurred up to 1 year after the crash) $15,000 per person. (Coverage for lost wages up to $3,000 a month for up to one year is also part of PIP and is in addition to the medical coverage.
