Plain Talk Series: A Basic Explanation of Your Auto Insurance Policy-Liability

Liability Insurance Coverage

The “declaration page” of your insurance policy lists the different types of insurance coverages available under your particular insurance policy. In other words, the declaration page is a basic summary of the insurance coverages that you pay for as part of your insurance premium. An explanation (in plain English) of the different types of liability insurance coverages is below:

Bodily Injury Liability Insurance Coverage: This protects you if you are found legally responsible for the bodily injury of another person resulting from an auto accident. You are protected up to the policy limit that you select on your auto insurance policy. The minimum amount of bodily injury liability coverage in Georgia is $25,000.00 per person; $50,000.00 per accident.

As an example, if you had the minimum limits of $25,000.00/$50,000.00, any one person can collect up to $25,000.00 for their injuries from your insurance company. If you were legally responsible for the injuries of more than one person, each person could collect up to $25,000.00 but your insurance company will not pay more than $50,000.00 for everyone’s injuries combined.

Property Damage Liability Insurance Coverage: This protects you if you are found legally responsible for the damage to someone else’s property resulting from an auto accident. You are protected up to the policy limit that you select on your auto insurance policy. The minimum amount of property damage liability coverage in Georgia is $25,000.00 per accident.

As an example, if you had the minimum limits of $25,000.00 and were legally responsible for the damages to another person’s property resulting from an auto accident, that person could collect up to $25,000.00 from your insurance company for their damaged property.

Testimonial
  • "I was involved in an auto-accident with a drunk driver and after several weeks of frustrating interactions with their insurance company, I decided to contact Evan Kaine. He was upfront and honest about how the process works and never made any promises or raised my expectations. Evan understood that my first priority was to take care of the medical expenses that I incurred and he completely delivered. Communication is essential and I spoke directly with him and was never pawned off to another person. Bottom line - Evan Kaine gives lawyers a good name." - M.T. Atlanta, GA

  • "Evan Kaine is a great attorney who kept me informed on all activity regarding my case. Always willing to go the extra mile to put me at ease. Very knowledgeable and thorough, always examining my case from every angle. I have recommended him to several friends and will continue to do so. Overall great legal service." - B.S. Roswell, GA

  • "My boyfriend Michael was hit by a drunk driver while he was driving my car. Even though I wasn't involved in the accident, Evan made every effort to make the process of getting my new car painless for me. He worked with my insurance company, kept in touch with me personally, and made me aware that he was working on my case around the clock. He also helped Michael get his medical bills paid ASAP. I would highly recommend Evan Kaine! " - B.D. Atlanta, GA

  • "I was in a minor car accident and wasn’t sure that I even had a case. I met with Evan and he explained the law in terms I could understand. I immediately hired him and Evan turned my questionable case into more than $50,000.00! Evan is upfront, honest and expects the same from his clients – and he doesn’t take half of your money! I highly recommend Attorney Evan Kaine." - G.S., Smyrna, Georgia

  • "To everyone LIKE ME who has had to deal with attorneys AND has that bad taste in their mouth because they have been taken advantage of because their lawyers are more interested in making money and not caring about YOU, well please allow me to introduce you to Evan Kaine. I was in a very tight position and Evan could not have been more professional, courteous or kind and, again, HONEST! Once more, as a person who has been through the trials and tribulations with lawyers, good, bad or indifferent, if you have an issue, PLEASE contact Evan and I mean this from the heart! " - R.K., Suwanee, Georgia and Palm Beach, Florida
