Home Insurance Cost on the Rise

Why Dan Karr started ValChoice

Virginia Insurance Laws and Regulations

The Virginia Bureau of Insurance develops and enforces insurance laws for the state. Consumers can contact the department with questions and complaints about their auto and home insurance. If you do not receive the service you expect from your insurer, you can file a complaint directly with the State Corporation Commission. The Commonwealth of Virginia does not provide insurance company complaint information for consumers to reference when shopping for a new insurer.

Important Laws

A summary of the driving safety laws for the Commonwealth of Virginia can be found with this link. The information includes a summary of the laws affecting people driving cars, or riding motorcycles or bicycles while using cell phones or texting. Also included are the requirements for child safety seats, wearing a helmet and being under the influence while operating a vehicle in the commonwealth of Virginia.

The Virginia Statute of Limitations defines the time limit following an accident when you can file a lawsuit. Once this time limit has passed, you can no longer file a lawsuit.

State law in VA allows for homeowners insurance companies to invoke a larger deductible when a wind storm occurs. This type of deductible means you will pay a percentage of your homes value before the insurance company pays for losses.

Virginia has minimum auto insurance amounts that are required by law. The table below shows the VA minimum car insurance limits.

Minimum Car Insurance Coverage Required in Virginia
