The minimum coverages are set by the state legislature of each state and it varies from state to state as well as other required coverages and policy features. The good thing is that when you travel from state to state, if you have minimum coverage it will adapt to the higher of the coverage you have or the minimum for the state you are in and at no cost to you. In Georgia the minimum is 25/50/25 which means $25,000 per person for Bodily Injury with no more than $50,000 per accident for Bisexual and $25,000 property harm. Usually it doesn’t cost much to increase your coverages so it certainly pays to carry higher boundaries. For total disclosure, I own and operate a puny Independent Insurance Agency in Gordon, Georgia and have for 22 years. I also worked as an agent for a direct writer for Three years before that.

What is an insurance policy with bodily injury coverage?
The question can be answered in a duo of ways: 1. Third-party coverage is sometimes called liability coverage. It provides benefits for third-party who sustains harm 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, tho’, that it will pay only upon a finding that the insured was legally responsible for the injury, and that BUT FOR the act or inaction of the insured, the injury would not have occurred. This is the concept of proximate causation. Two. 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 private injury protection coverages of an automobile policy.
Can the driver at fault file a claim to his own insurance for bodily injury under his uninsured motorist portion of his policy if he was driving a friend’s vehicle who had no insurance coverage?
No. Insurance goes after the vehicle primary, driver secondary. Since the driver is at fault and there is no coverage under the vehicle itself, the drivers policy would pay for any bodily injury or property harm he may have caused. Therefore uninsured motorist coverage would not apply. The only way that driver would have coverage for himself is if he already had Med Pay coverage on his own policy.

What is automobile liability insurance coverage?
Automobile liability insurance coverage is one of several types of autobile coverage. It is required by the law of most US jurisdictions in order to register a vehicle for operation on public highways. It is often also required to be shown as a condition of obtaining a driver’s license. Automobile liability insurance is intended to cover the negligent acts or omissions of a driver in the operation of the covered motor vehicle. Depending upon whether it is property harm liability coverage, bodily injury liability coverage, or both, it generally covers the correlating kind of harm sustained by the person who was not at fault. In that sense, it is considered to be “third-party” coverage in that it does not pay for the damages sustained by the insured person. Another aspect of automobile liability coverage is that if the aggrieved party makes a claim against the insured, such as by filing suit, the liability insurer defends the insured by retaining an attorney to defend the insured. The insurer pays the attorney, but also has the right to control the defense, including by lodging the claim.

The failure to do so can result in the suspension of your license and tags under Financial Responsibility Laws.

In that sense, it protects you from individual liability up to the policy thresholds that you have bought. If you are sued as a result of the incident and fault is contested, the insurer also provides you with an attorney to defend you. The insurer pays the attorney’s fees and related court costs (such as, but not limited to, court reporter expenses).

What is the minimum amount of liability insurance coverage required for petite businesses in the state of Florida?
If you are speaking of non-auto liability insurance for your business, the state imposes no requirements. That said, if you lease business space from a third-party, the lease may prescribe minimum insurance thresholds, and will generally require that the landlord be named as an extra insured. The amount of non-auto liability insurance that it is prudent to have is another question. It depends upon various factors, not the least of which is whether your business is open to the public (such as a store). If it is not, you will still want liability insurance to cover potential risk exposures relative to the products that you produce or sell. Overall, you have to look to the risk factors attending your business, and assets that you wish to protect. Your best bet is to consult a licensed commercial insurance agent/broker.
What is Medical Payments Coverage and how might it affect your NC individual injury case?
Many automobile insurance policies include MedPay, which can be used to pay for reasonable and necessary medical and funeral expenses due to a car accident, regardless of who is at fault. The coverage will pay up to the thresholds listed in the policy for each individual injured. Typical boundaries of MedPay coverage are $1,000 or $Two,000, but most insurance companies will sell much more, depending on what you want to pay as a premium. Unlike liability coverage, which is required by law for all automobile insurance policies, MedPay is an optional coverage, so it is not included in every policy. It is typically only included if the policyholder asks for it when applying for the policy. You can add Med Pay or increase your amount of MedPay when you renew your policy. After a collision, the at-fault party may be liable for the cost of your medical bills, lost wages and anguish & suffering. In North Carolina, you may be able to recover from your MedPay coverage as well. There can be complicated interactions with MedPay and other insurance coverage, including health insurance, that may require consultation with an experienced NC individual injury lawyer.
