What Does Liability Insurance Cover?

Auto liability insurance is required by law in most states in the US. It offers bodily injury coverage and property damage coverage to other people involved in an accident if you, the driver, are at fault. What does liability coverage pay for exactly? Learn more below to get ready for your new vehicle purchase in the Rogers area.

How Does Liability Insurance Work?

Bodily injury coverage and property damage coverage are both under the umbrella of overall liability coverage, but you can set different limits for each one, and there are minimum limits set by the state.

  • Bodily Injury
    • Medical and hospital bills
    • Physical rehabilitation
    • Pain and suffering
    • Lost earnings
    • Any long-term nursing care that may be needed
    • Funeral expenses in the event of a fatal accident
  • Property Damage
    • Vehicle damage
    • Repair expenses
    • Necessary part replacement
    • General property damage (house, personal property, etc.)
    • Pets

Remember–this liability coverage is for another victim of the accident when you the driver are at fault. Go over your budget and try to set limits on your liability coverage that align with how much you’re able to offer.

Liability Coverage Limits

When setting up your plan with your Anoka agent, you’ll have to discuss coverage limits. Limits can either be split or housed as a single limit. Here’s how that works:

  • A split limit will allow you to select individual maximums for bodily injury payments per person, for all people injured, and all property damage.
  • With a single limit, there is no total limit per person, the lump sum will simply be spread across all those injured and all property damaged.
