What is liability car insurance?
Do I need liability coverage for car insurance? What does it even cover?
“Liability car insurance helps cover the other driver’s bodily injury and property damage expenses if you’re at fault in an accident. In most states, drivers are required to have it by law.
Bear in mind that liability does not cover your own medical bills or damage to your vehicle. To protect yourself, you should consider obtaining collision coverage, comprehensive coverage, and medical payments coverage.
If you’re hesitant to switch plans or insurance providers because you’re worried about the work involved, don’t be. Jerry does all the paperwork for you. You’ll never have to print out anything, go to the post office, or get on the phone. Jerry handles it all.”
