Bodily injury liability refers to the protection for other parties in case of an accident where you, the policyholder, are at fault.
Bodily injury is required as part of liability insurance in most states.
Personal injury protection (PIP), on the other hand, covers the policyholder and their passengers, even if they don’t have medical insurance.”
