FAQ's for Drivers in Gulfport, MS

driver’s frequently asked question in Gulfport

What Is the Minimum Liability Coverage Requirement in Gulfport, MS?

In Mississippi, you must carry a minimum of $25,000 bodily injury coverage per person, $50,000 bodily injury coverage per accident, and $25,000 property damage liability per accident. However, the State cautions residents that with the skyrocketing costs of medical care and rising expenses for auto repairs, the mandated minimum may not be enough to cover all costs in all accidents.

Mississippi follows a traditional tort or fault system. Fault is determined in accidents and people are free to pursue compensation by filing a claim through their own car insurance provider, the at-fault party’s carrier, or through personal injury litigation.

  •  $25,000; Bodily injury coverage per person; Maximum payment for serious or permanent injury or death to a single person
  •  $50,000; Bodily injury coverage per accident; Maximum payment for serious or permanent injury or death to multiple people
  •  $25,000; Property damage per accident; Maximum payment for all damaged property in an accident caused by you

It’s important to realize that Mississippi’s minimum car insurance coverage requirements may not be adequate to pay for all damage and/or medical care resulting from a high-speed or otherwise serious accident. Also, these basic coverages don’t pay for damage from a variety of other causes, or for certain other types of common road troubles. Optional coverages are useful for greater peace of mind and financial protection for a better return on your investment in auto coverage.

What are the consequences of being convicted of a DUI?

A first-time DUI offender can expect some or all of the following: A fine between $250 and $1,000, up to 48 hours in jail, compulsory attendance of an alcohol safety program at their own expense, and at least a 90-day suspension of driving privileges.
