What Does Liability Insurance Cover?

Automobile liability insurance is required by law in most states, and it covers both required categories of bodily injury and property damage. To be more specific, this covers expenses from injuries to other people or property damage if you the driver, are at fault in the accident. Learn more details about how this type of auto insurance works and what it covers with Lexus of Albuquerque, to be a knowledgeable driver with plenty of coverage should you get into a car accident in your new Lexus on Santa Fe roads.

How Does Liability Insurance Work?

Under liability coverage, both bodily injury coverage and property damage coverage have their own set limits. There are minimum limits set by the state, but you can tailor your liability insurance coverage to increase the limits and get better peace on Belen roads. 

What does liability coverage pay for? Remember that this coverage provided by the driver at fault and awarded to the victim of the accident.

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

It’s important to have good coverage, but it’s also key to set proper limits on your liability coverage that align with how much you’re able to offer and how much you are able to contribute in your monthly car insurance payments.

How Do Liability Coverage Limits Work?

When setting up your plan with your Belen 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
