How much does liability insurance cost? Generally, liability insurance policy costs depend on the policy you choose. The most common to get, that goes above the state’s legal requirements, is the 100/300/50 limits which means the insurer will pay up to $100,000 for injuries per person, $300,000 for injuries per accident, and $50,000 for property damage per accident. This can cost from $46 a month to $80 a month depending on the state and the amount of coverage you choose. Contact us today to learn more.

What is Liability Insurance and What Does it Cover?

Liability insurance is coverage that pays the other driver for damage or injuries in the event of an accident that the insurer is responsible for. What exactly does liability insurance cover? There are two different kinds: Bodily Injury Liability and Property Damage Liability.

  • Bodily Injury Liability – This insurance covers bodily harm to the other driver in an accident you caused. Having this insurance means the other person’s medical bills, pain and suffering, etc, are all covered. And if you were to get sued, your defense and court costs would also be covered.
  • Property Damage Liability – This insurance covers the damage to the other person’s property and the loss of use of that property. This means the damage done will be covered.

How Much Coverage Should You Have?

The legal amount you’re required to have varies by state. If you decide on additional coverage, you’re likely to have a higher premium, but are better off in the case of an accident. It’s better to have more coverage as accidents, especially ones where you’re at fault, can be very costly. Consider how much you can afford, and get covered.
