Car Insurance in Washington

Washington Car Insurance

Washington state car insurance laws are written to make sure you are able to pay for injuries or damages after a car accident.

Read more to learn about WA car insurance laws, programs, rates, and discounts.

Car Insurance Requirements

To fulfill Washington’s mandatory auto insurance law, you must carry liability insurance to help pay for property damage or injuries resulting from a car accident that you cause.

Your liability car insurance must have the following minimums:

  • $25,000 for injuries or death per person.
  • $50,000 total for injuries or death per accident.
  • $10,000 for property damage.

Optional Car insurance

While Washington auto insurance laws only require you to have liability auto insurance coverage, there are several optional coverage types that can help further protect you financially.

Most WA car insurance companies offer the following types of optional coverage.

  • Collision – Helps cover accident-related damages to your car.
  • Comprehensive – Helps cover non-collision related damages to your car, such as those resulting from theft or vandalism.
  • Uninsured/underinsured motorist – Helps pay for your own injuries or property damage if you are involved in a car accident caused by an uninsured driver or a driver whose insurance is insufficient to cover your costs.

NOTE. As part of your loan or lease agreement, you may be required to purchase collision and comprehensive coverages for your financed or leased car.

Personal Injury Protection

Personal injury protection (PIP). or no-fault car insurance. will help pay for certain costs after a car accident, regardless of who caused the accident.

PIP will help pay for your:

  • Medical costs.
  • Loss of income.
  • Funeral expenses.

While you are not required to carry PIP in Washington, car insurance companies are required to offer PIP to you.

If you decide to reject the PIP option, you must do so in writing.

Washington Proof of Insurance

Washington officials mainly monitor car insurance status via traffic stops.

If you are pulled over by a police officer, you are required to show yourproof of insurance upon request.

Your insurance card. issued to you by your insurance carrier, acts as your proof of insurance.

Car insurance cards must include:

  • The name of your car insurance company.
  • Your policy number.
  • Effective date of your policy.
  • Expiration date of your policy.
  • Year, make, model of your car.

You will be issued an insurance card every time you buy a new policy or renew your policy. Make sure to carry your most current card with you.

Insurance Violations and Penalties

If you are caught without your proof of insurance, you are subject to a fine.

If you had a valid insurance policy at the time of a traffic stop but were unable to show your insurance card, you may present the court with proof that you were insured at the time of the violation before your court date to have your charges removed. You may still have to pay a court-processing fee of $25.

If you are caught driving without car insurance, you face a minimum fine of $450.

WA Car Insurance for High-Risk Drivers

Drivers who are considered high-risk because of past traffic violations or accidents may have a difficult time finding car insurance companies willing to cover them, and may have to take extra steps to comply with Washington auto insurance laws.

Washington Automobile Insurance Plan

While all drivers must be insured, Washington car insurance companies do have the right to deny coverage to drivers they feel are high-risk.

If you are unable to find a car insurance carrier, you may apply for coverage through the Washington Automobile Insurance Plan.

Through the plan, WA car insurance companies share the risk of covering high-risk drivers.

Washington is one of many states that comprise the Western Association of Automobile Insurance Plans (WAAIP), which acts as a processing center for the various state plans within the association.

Insurance rates through the plan are generally much higher than standard policy rates. It’s smart to continue to shop for car insurance through the standard market.

To learn more about how to apply for car insurance through WAAIP, visit the WAAIP website.

SR-22 in Washington

Certain violations may require you to file proof of financial responsibility known as an SR-22 certificate, sometimes referred to as SR22 insurance.

You may be required to file an SR-22 if you:

  • Have had your driver’s license suspended.
  • Have been convicted of certain offenses.
  • Failed to pay judgment fines.
  • Driven or owned a car involved in an accident.

In most cases, you must maintain your SR22 filing for 3 years.

Many insurance providers can file SR-22s for their clients; however, some carriers don’t offer this service. You may be required to shop for a car insurance provider that does file SR-22s.

Car Insurance Regulation

Since car insurance can be complex, Washington has various programs meant to help consumers with various car insurance issues.

The Office of the Insurance Commissioner

If you have a question or concern about your insurance policy or provider, you can get help from the Washington State Office of the Insurance Commissioner (OIC).

  • Help you understand your policy.
  • Determine if your insurance company violated the terms of your policy.
  • Help your insurance company and you communicate with each other.
  • Recommend places or programs that can better help you.
  • Review a complaint and help facilitate a resolution.
  • Give you legal advice.
  • Make medical judgments.
  • Determine who was at-fault in a car accident.
  • Determine the value of a claim.
  • Establish the facts in a case.
  • Force an insurance company to make a payment on a claim or refund you money if they have not broken the law.

For more information, you can contact the OIC by calling (800) 562-6900.

Car Insurance Fraud

Handling car insurance fraud costs car insurance companies large sums of money every year. Those costs get passed down to you in the form of higher premiums.

Common forms of car insurance fraud include:

  • Staging car accidents.
  • Falsifying or exaggerating injuries.
  • Falsifying or exaggerating the extent of property damage.

If you suspect insurance fraud, you can report it to the OIC by filling out their online form.

Determining Your Insurance Rates

Several factors go into determining the price of your car insurance premium.

When shopping for car insurance, most car insurance companies will factor in the following to determine your rates:

  • Driving record.
  • Credit history.
  • Age.
  • Gender.
  • Marital status.
  • Your car’s:
    • Make.
    • Model.
    • Year.
  • History of insurance claims.
  • Deductibles:
    • This is the amount you are responsible for paying towards a claim.
    • The higher your deductible, the lower your premium.

WA Car Insurance Discounts

A great way to save on car insurance is to take advantage of discounts. When comparing car insurance quotes, ask about any discounts for which you may be eligible.

Most Washington car insurance companies offer the following discounts:

Taking advantage of discounts is a great way to get affordable car insurance rates. However, the best way to maintain low-cost Washington car insurance is to keep a clean driving record that reflects safe and violation free driving.

Most Stolen Cars in Washington

If your car is a common target for theft, you may have to pay higher car insurance rates.

The following is a list of Washington’s most stolen cars in 2013, according to www.nicb.org :

  1. Honda Accord.
  2. Honda Civic.
  3. Subaru Legacy.
  4. Ford Pickup (Full Size).
  5. Acura Integra.
  6. Toyota Camry.
  7. Chevrolet Pickup (Full Size).
  8. Jeep Cherokee/Grand Cherokee.
  9. Nissan Sentra.
  10. Chevrolet Pickup (Small Size).

Baseball legend Cal Ripken Jr #cal #ripken #divorce, #ripken, #kelly #riken, #washington #post, #reliable

Baseball legend Cal Ripken Jr. and Kelly Ripken are divorced after nearly three decades

After almost 30 years of marriage, Hall of Famer and former Baltimore Oriole Cal Ripken Jr. and Kelly Ripken have divorced.

Her attorney says the split was finalized Thursday morning in the Baltimore County circuit court. Details about the settlement — Cal Ripken, 55, owns a minor-league team and a chain of sports complexes bearing his name and is reportedly worth $75 million — will not be made public since records were sealed and the division of property was outlined in a private contract.

The pair wed in 1987 and have two children, Rachel, 26, and Ryan, 22. Ripken was a homegrown baseball star known for a low-key public persona, and his wife was a presence at Orioles games and a fixture at his side through decades of charity events and appearances. Together, they projected an image of a wholesome, low-drama couple — a rarity in the volatile world of pro sports.

“Kelly has been a great mother to two fabulous children and a wonderful, faithful wife for the duration of the parties’ relationship, which lasted more than 30 years,” her attorney, Sanford Ain, said in a statement. “This is a difficult time for her and she asks that her privacy and the privacy of her children be respected.”

A spokesman for Cal Ripken said his client would have no comment on the matter. Cal Ripken, whose stamina earned him the moniker the “Iron Man,” broke Lou Gehrig’s consecutive-games record in 1995 when he played his 2,131st straight game. He’s been renting a home in Annapolis, his spokesman confirmed, a development that was first reported by the local Capital Gazette .

Ain says the pair have been separated for some time and that Kelly Ripken, 57, “looks forward to the next chapter ” in which she plans to focus on philanthropic efforts, particularly those related to women’s health. Kelly Ripken, who has publicly discussed being diagnosed 30 years ago with Graves’ disease, a thyroid condition, is the co-chair of Johns Hopkins annual women’s health conference and is the namesake of the Kelly G. Ripken program for thyroid patients at Johns Hopkins.

Tiger Woods blames medications for his DUI arrest

By Doug Ferguson – Associated Press
Monday, May 29, 2017

Tiger Woods attributed an unexpected reaction to prescription medicine for his arrest on a DUI charge that landed him in a Florida jail Monday for nearly four hours.

Woods. the 14-time major champion who had back surgery five weeks ago, was arrested on suspicion of DUI at about 3 a.m. Monday and taken to Palm Beach County jail. He was released on his own recognizance.

An arrest report might be available on Tuesday, Jupiter Police spokeswoman Kristin Rightler said.

I understand the severity of what I did and I take full responsibility for my actions, Woods said in a statement Monday evening. I want the public to know that alcohol was not involved. What happened was an unexpected reaction to prescribed medications. I didn t realize the mix of medications had affected me so strongly.

Woods apologized to his family, friends and fans and said, I expect more from myself, too.

I will do everything in my power to ensure this never happens again, he said.

Woods. whose 79 victories rank No. 2 on the PGA Tour s career list, has not competed for nearly four months. He is out for the rest of the season while he recovers from fusion surgery performed April 20 in Texas.

In an update posted Wednesday on his website, he said the surgery provided instant relief from pain and that he hasn t felt this good in years.

Police said Woods was arrested on Military Trail, a six-lane road, south of Indian Creek Parkway. Woods did not say in his statement where he had been or what he was doing at that hour. Jail records show that the 41-year-old was booked into jail at 7:18 a.m. and released at 10:50 a.m. The jail released a booking photo of Woods in a white T-shirt.

Rightler. the police spokeswoman, said she did not have details about the circumstances leading to Woods arrest, nor did she have any information about whether the arrest involved drugs or alcohol.

His agent at Excel Sports, Mark Steinberg, did not respond to a voicemail from The Associated Press seeking comment. PGA Tour spokesman Ty Votaw said the tour would have no comment.

Woods said in his statement that he fully cooperated with law enforcement and thanked Jupiter Police and the Palm Beach County Sheriff s Office for being professional.

Notah Begay, a roommate of Woods when they played at Stanford, was empathetic. Begay was arrested for aggravated drunken driving in 2000 when he ran into a car outside a bar in New Mexico. He was sentenced to 364 days in jail, with all but seven days suspended.

It s embarrassing for Tiger, something that you can t go back and change, Begay said on Golf Channel from the NCAA men s golf championship in Sugar Grove, Illinois, where he was working for the network. I ve been there myself. But it was a turning point in my life. Hopefully, it s something he ll learn from, grow from, take responsibility for and use it to make some changes.

Woods has not been seen at a golf tournament since he opened with a 77 at the Omega Dubai Desert Classic in February, withdrawing the next day because of back spasms. He was in Los Angeles for the Genesis Open, run by his Tiger Woods Foundation, but he did not come to the course at Riviera because of his back.

He was at the Masters, but only to attend the dinner for past champions.

Woods. who had been No. 1 longer than any other golfer, has not been a factor since his last victory in August 2013 as he battled through back surgeries from a week before the 2014 Masters until his most recent fusion surgery on his lower back a month ago.

It was the first time Woods has run into trouble off the golf course since he plowed his SUV into a tree and a fire hydrant outside his Windermere, Florida, home in the early morning after Thanksgiving in 2009, which led to revelations that he had multiple extramarital affairs.

A police report then showed that a Florida trooper who suspected Woods was driving under the influence sought a subpoena for the golfer s blood test results from the hospital, but prosecutors rejected the petition for insufficient information.

A witness, who wasn t identified in the report, told the trooper he had been drinking alcohol earlier. The same witness also said Woods had been prescribed two drugs, the sleep aid Ambien and the painkiller Vicodin. The report did not say who the witness was but said it was the same person who pulled Woods from the vehicle after the accident. Woods wife has told police that she used a golf club to smash the back windows of the Cadillac Escalade to help her husband out.

He eventually was cited for careless driving and fined $164.

Woods and wife Elin Nordegren divorced in 2010. He later had a relationship with Olympic ski champion Lindsey Vonn that lasted two years.
