You are generally required to have liability insurance on your automobile anytime you drive around Louisville. If you’re not sure what the auto liability insurance definition is, or are wondering “What does liability insurance cover,”– you’re in luck. Mercedes-Benz of Louisville is at your service. Liability insurance provides bodily injury and property damage coverage to the other driver in the event of a collision where you’re at fault. If you’re wondering, “What does liability coverage pay for?” Review our guide below, and then call the dealership’s finance center with any auto insurance questions.

How Does Liability Insurance Work?

So, how does liability insurance work? Both the bodily injury and property damage coverage of liability insurance has their own unique limits. While the state mandates what the minimum limits must be, you have the opportunity to increase that amount depending on how much more you’re willing to pay. If you’re curious what does liability coverage pay for, find out below:

Bodily Injury:

  • Medical and hospital bills
  • Rehabilitation
  • Long-term nursing care
  • Funeral expenses in the event of a fatal accident
  • Pain and suffering
  • Lost earnings of the other driver

Property Damage:

  • Auto repair costs
  • Replacement parts
  • Any vehicle damage
  • General property damage (house, personal property, etc.)
  • Pets

It’s essential to remember that the coverage offered under liability insurance is for the victim of the collision and not for the driver who is at fault.

Liability Coverage Limits

Remember to review your liability insurance coverage limit options with your insurance agent in Elizabethtown or Frankfort to determine what is best for you. The insurance limits can be either split or consolidated into a single limit with the difference being:

  • With a split insurance limit, you can choose individual maximums for bodily injury payments per person, for all people injured, and for all property damage around New Albany.
  • With a single limit, there’s no total limit per person. The lump-sum is spread across all of those injured and all property damaged.
