That would depend on the state where you live minimum liability coverage.

The only coverage you are required to have is liability. The limits must be set at $15,000 per person for bodily injury. $30,000 total bodily injury coverage per occurrence and only $5,000 for property damage.

You'll need to have $25000 in liability, bodily injury, and property damage coverage before driving in Georgia.

A bodily injury claim is a liablity claim. Most auto policys have three (could be many more) liability coverages; Bodily injury (pays for injuries you cause to another), Property damage (pays for damages to property of others), Uninsured motorist coverage (pays for injuries caused by an uninsured motorist). The bodily injury coverage is one coverage under the liability section of your auto policy.

Louisiana state law requires minimum Bodily Injury Liability limits of $15,000 per injured person up to a total of $30,000 per accident, and Property Damage Liability coverage with a minimum limit of $25,000. This basic coverage is often referred to as 15/30/25 coverage.

Liability coverage inscludes these parts as well as uninsured motorists.

"Bodily injury liability" It's cost associated with bodily injury, usually medical that you are found liable for.

Uninsured motorist coverage pays damages for bodily injuries when the at-fault driver or owner of a vehicle has no bodily injury liability coverage. It pays an amount up to the amount purchased by the insured, and is generally not a required coverage. In those states that utilize a comparative negligence rule of determining fault for a collision, the amount that the inured party can recover is reduced by the amount of liability attributable to him/her. In that respect, it operates similarly to the evaluation of the injury and damages if the at-fault party did have bodily injury liability coverage. Underinsured motorist coverage serves essentially the same purpose. However, it is triggered when the at-fault party's bodily injury liability coverage is less than the injured party's uninsured motorist coverage. Further, in order to be triggered, the "value" of the injury must exceed the liability coverage of the at-fault party.

Coverage that is provided when purchasing standard car insurance are liability coverage and the legal right to drive. There are two liability coverages: bodily injury and property damage liability.

Bodily injury coverage only covers the passengers of the other part's car.

Maryland law requires minimum coverage of $20/40/10K. The first two numbers are the liability limits for bodily injury and the third number is the limit for property damage.

As of May 2013, in Washington State, you must be covered for: - $25,000 of Bodily Injury Liability Coverage per Person - $50,000 of Bodily Injury Coverage per Accident - $10,000 of Property Damage Liability Coverage - $5000 of Uninsured Motorist Coverage See the related link for more information.

Liability coverage offers coverage for bodily injury and property damage to the other vehicle and passengers who you hit if the accident is your faulty. It does not cover you or anyone in your vehicle.

Yes, but only as a secondary coverage to all other auto insurance claims you might have (like bodily injury liability against the at fault driver or personal injury protection coverage in no-fault states).

No. Liability insurance is, by its nature, third-party insurance. That means that proceeds are paid to the person(s) that are hurt as a result of your negligence. It does, however, indemnify you for your carelessness up to the amount of coverage that you purchased. If sued for the collision by someone claiming bodily injury, the insurer will also provide a defense attorney. Somewhat analogous to bodily injury coverage is uninsured motorist coverage. It is a form of first party coverage, meaning that you buy it for yourself. If you are hurt by the negligence of another driver, and that person does not have bodily injury liability insurance, you may have a claim for damages under your uninsured motorist coverage.

This is far too broad of a question to fully answer. However, representative terms include collision coverage, bodily injury liability coverage, personal injury protection, comprehensive coverage, and deductible.

Liability coverage is to pay for the other party's damage in an accident that is your fault. It is divided into two parts, bodily injury and property damage. You have a choice of selecting what amount of coverage you wish to purchase.

You do not have to purchase full coverage auto insurance in Illinois if your vehicle is paid for. You do still need Bodily Injury Liability, Property Damage Liability, and Uninsured Motorist coverage.

California does have minimum requirements for the amount of automobile insurance that you need to carry. You are required by the state to cover Bodily Injury/Death Liability of one person ($15,000), Bodily Injury/Death Liability of two persons ($30,000), and Property Damage of $5,000.

The question can be answered in a couple of ways: 1. Third-party coverage is sometimes called liability coverage. It provides benefits for third-party who sustains damage or injury due to the carelessness of the insured. In this context, bodily injury coverage within the liability protection will provide benefits to the injured party for his/her injury. Note, though, that it will pay only upon a finding that the insured was legally responsible for the injury, and that BUT FOR the action or inaction of the insured, the injury would not have occurred. This is the concept of proximate causation. 2. Bodily injury coverage can exist in a first-party policy as well. This is a policy under which the insured is him/herself insured. Examples are the uninsured motorist and personal injury protection coverages of an automobile policy.

Uninsured motorist coverage is a type of first-party auto insurance that compensates one if he/she is injured in a collision due to the negligence of someone else who does not have bodily injury liability coverage. Essentially, it pays the same sort of damages as the at-fault party's bodily injury liability coverage would have paid if it existed. It only pays for compensable bodily injuries--not property damage. In many States, uninsured motorist coverage must be offered in the same amount as one's liability coverage. However, the insured usually has the right to select lower limits or reject it altogether.

Too many variables, call and ask your agent! the minimum is as follows: The Florida Financial Responsibility Law requires that any person at fault in a crash resulting in bodily injury and property damage to others must have in effect at the time of the crash full liability insurance coverage. This coverage includes minimum limits of bodily injury liability of $10,000 per person, $20,000 per crash, $10,000 property damage liability per crash, and personal injury protection limits of $10,000 per person per crash. The Florida Financial Responsibility Law DOES apply to motorcycles.
