This type of coverage is only required if the business owns a vehicle. Every vehicle owned by an Oregon business has to have a commercial auto insurance policy on it. There is a mandatory minimum amount of bodily injury liability coverage that you must have for one person injured in an accident and another, higher, the number required for everyone who is injured in an accident. This is a liability, however, so the driver is not included in this type of coverage. There is also a set minimum amount of coverage for property damage liability. In addition, each vehicle must have a set minimum amount for one person injured in an accident with an uninsured motorist and a higher amount for everyone who is injured in this type of accident. There is also an amount of personal injury protection coverage required, and this is what protects the driver.
