How Does Liability Insurance Work?

Each state has a minimum amount of bodily insurance coverage that will make sure that both parties in the accident are covered. You’ll want to review your coverage with the insurance provider to make sure it’s meeting your needs and fits within your budget. You may be wondering, what does liability insurance pay for? Take a look at what’s covered by liability insurance:

Bodily Injury

  • Lost earnings
  • Pain and suffering
  • Medical and hospital bills
  • Funeral expenses in the event of a fatal accident
  • Rehab
  • Any long-term nursing care that may be needed

Property Damage

  • Repair expenses
  • Vehicle damage
  • Necessary part replacement
  • Pets
  • General property damage (house, personal property, etc.)

What’s important to note about liability insurance is that it does cover the driver who caused the accident. Rather, the coverage is for the driver harmed in the collision.

Coverage Limitations

When Roswell drivers are setting up their insurance plans, they have the chance to split limits or combine each into a single limit.

  • Split limit – will allow you to choose individual maximums for bodily injury payments per person, for all people injured and all property damage.
  • Single limit – there is no total limit per person. The lump-sum is divided among the injured parties and split to cover all property damage.
