FAQs On Auto Liability Coverage
Chances are, you tried to understand the basics of the auto insurance policy you own and left the detailed language alone. Even if you did read it, it was prepared by an attorney at the insurance company who carefully crafted the language according to the law of your state, it was not written to provide clear information to you. And even if you did understand the language, you may not have understood the importance of certain insurance policies, opting for lower monthly payments instead of more coverage. This is true even if you opted for “comprehensive coverage.”
What Does Your Policy Cover?
One of the biggest sources of misinformation for our clients is about insurance policy coverage. Many people believe they are covered if they are in an accident. Yet state minimum insurance coverage in Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana varies, and usually does not cover nearly enough in serious accidents.

FAQs On Auto Liability Coverage
- What is underinsured/uninsured motorist coverage? UM/UIM coverage is your own policy coverage that compensates you if the at-fault driver is uninsured. Uninsured motorists continue to be a problem on the road, particularly drivers who have a revoked or suspended license but continue driving.
- What is gap insurance? If your vehicle is totaled in an accident, you may owe more on the car than it was worth. Gap insurance makes up the difference between the fair market value of your car and what you owe to the bank on it.
- What is personal injury protection? In Kentucky, the law forces insurance companies to provide personal injury protection, which gives policyholders an automatic $10,000 if injured in an accident, regardless of fault. It is optional in Ohio. Without this coverage, you may have to pay for medical bills upfront.
- What happens if the driver who injured me does not have medical payments coverage? Medical payments coverage is an optional policy in Ohio that provides for medical payments in addition to liability protection. Medical payments will cover your medical expenses regardless of fault. Otherwise, you might have to pay the costs of your medical treatment upfront.
