Different coverage requirements and bundles can be confusing to wrap your head around. So, what does liability insurance cover? Liability insurance covers injuries to others and property damage that occurs as a result of accidents for which you are at fault. This is crucial coverage for all Kenilworth drivers. Find the answer to, “How does liability insurance work?,” and more in our guide below.

How Does Liability Insurance Work?

Comprehending the auto liability insurance definition is not as complicated as it sounds. Liability insurance covers both bodily injury and property damage, but each has a separate limit. Every state sets a minimum amount of coverage but you can also set your own limit. Liability insurance coverage includes:

Property Damage:

  • Damage done to vehicles
  • Damage to a house, personal property, etc.
  • Pets
  • Repair costs
  • Replacement parts

Bodily Injury:

  • Reasonable funeral expenses if necessary
  • Rehabilitation and therapy
  • Pain and suffering
  • Lost wages
  • Medical bills
  • Long-term care

What Does Liability Coverage Pay for?

When setting coverage limits, you can opt for single limit or split limit coverage. What is the difference between single limit and split limit?

  • Single Limit: With a single limit liability insurance plan, there is no total limit per individual. In the event of an accident, a lump sum will be allocated to all of the injured parties and individuals who suffered property damage.
  • Split Limit: With split limit coverage, you will have the option to set individual maximums for bodily injury payments per person, for all people injured, and for property damage. Consult with an insurance expert to determine which form of coverage will best suit you.
