This type of insurance protects you and your financial assets in case you have an accident and/or injure another person(s). This insurance also protects damage caused to property of another person(s) with your automobile.

Bodily injury liability insurance protects you if another person is injured, disabled or killed due to an automobile accident.

Property damage liability insurance covers another person's car, fence, or mailbox, due to damage from your vehicle.

You will only be responsible for property damage, if you are determined to be liable (responsible or at fault) for the accident. If you're considered liable, certain costs may arise, such as, the injured person(s) medical and hospital bills, rehabilitation, loss of income and something they call, "pain and suffering". "Pain and suffering" is paying someone for the physical and mental pain, inconvience or otherwise issue. Damages owed will be determined by fault and legal and insurance authorities. You will be held accountable for any costs that remain after you auto insurance coverage pays out. No matter what, make sure you get enough liability insurance coverage so you can protect yourself and your financial assets.

Liability comes in split amounts, such as $50,000-$100,000-$50,000. For example, the first number of $50k is the max your policy will pay each person per accident for bodily injuries. The $100k is the overall maximum your auto insurance will pay out. The last number, $50k is the amount your auto insurance pays out for property damage.

The minimum liability insurance amounts of $25,000-$50,000-$10,000 is required in most states. This means there's $25k for injury coverage for one person, with $50k total for injuries to all persons, and $10k for all property damage.
