What Does Liability Insurance Pay For?

sign car insurance
 

Most states require drivers to have liability insurance to cover the cost of accidents in which they are at fault. But what does liability insurance pay for? Liability insurance protects the victim of the accident by covering a variety of costs related to the accident. The state you live in will determine how much you need, but you can buy more than what’s required by law if you choose to do so. Our finance department can help Kingsville drivers with further insurance questions, including inquiries on comprehensive insurance and how much liability insurance is required by law in their state.

Auto Liability Insurance Definition

Curious about the auto liability insurance definition? Liability insurance covers costs incurred in an accident in which the operator of the vehicle was at fault. It does not protect you, the driver, but instead pays the cost that the other driver in an accident incurs (physical injuries, damaged property, etc.). You are required to buy some amount of liability insurance when you purchase a vehicle to protect yourself financially if you’re sued as well as a potential victim.

How Does Liability Insurance Work?

Are you looking into liability insurance and asking yourself, “How does liability insurance work?” Liability insurance pays for the damages caused by an accident in which you’re at fault. How much liability insurance will cover an accident is dictated in the terms. Each state requires a set amount, but you can increase that amount if you want more coverage. Liability insurance covers an array of physical and property damages, including:

Bodily Injury:

  • Medical and hospital bills
  • Long-term nursing care if needed
  • Funeral expenses in the event of a fatal accident
  • Rehab
  • Pain and suffering
  • Lost earnings

Property Damage

  • Repair expenses
  • Replacement parts
  • Vehicle damage
  • General property damage (house, personal property, etc.)
  • Pets

Limits For Liability Insurance

A split limit allows you to set an individual limit on physical and property damages, which pays for each person’s injuries in the vehicle. A single limit puts aside a lump sum for all damages incurred by the victim of an accident. Which one you choose will depend on state law and personal preference.
