What is an insurance policy with bodily injury coverage?
The question can be answered in a duo of ways: 1. Third-party coverage is sometimes called liability coverage. It provides benefits for third-party who sustains harm or injury due to the carelessness of the insured. In this context, bodily injury coverage within the liability protection will provide benefits to the injured party for his/her injury. Note, tho’, that it will pay only upon a finding that the insured was legally responsible for the injury, and that BUT FOR the act or inaction of the insured, the injury would not have occurred. This is the concept of proximate causation. Two. Bodily injury coverage can exist in a first-party policy as well. This is a policy under which the insured is him/herself insured. Examples are the uninsured motorist and individual injury protection coverages of an automobile policy.
Can the driver at fault file a claim to his own insurance for bodily injury under his uninsured motorist portion of his policy if he was driving a friend’s vehicle who had no insurance coverage?
No. Insurance goes after the vehicle primary, driver secondary. Since the driver is at fault and there is no coverage under the vehicle itself, the drivers policy would pay for any bodily injury or property harm he may have caused. Therefore uninsured motorist coverage would not apply. The only way that driver would have coverage for himself is if he already had Med Pay coverage on his own policy.

What is automobile liability insurance coverage?
Automobile liability insurance coverage is one of several types of autobile coverage. It is required by the law of most US jurisdictions in order to register a vehicle for operation on public highways. It is often also required to be shown as a condition of obtaining a driver’s license. Automobile liability insurance is intended to cover the negligent acts or omissions of a driver in the operation of the covered motor vehicle. Depending upon whether it is property harm liability coverage, bodily injury liability coverage, or both, it generally covers the correlating kind of harm sustained by the person who was not at fault. In that sense, it is considered to be “third-party” coverage in that it does not pay for the damages sustained by the insured person. Another aspect of automobile liability coverage is that if the aggrieved party makes a claim against the insured, such as by filing suit, the liability insurer defends the insured by retaining an attorney to defend the insured. The insurer pays the attorney, but also has the right to control the defense, including by lodging the claim.

How are insurance bodily injury claims treated?
This is not a question that lends itself to a brief reaction, here is an outline: 1. After the incident, either the policyholder or the claimant (or his/her/its representative) must report the incident to the insurer. A timely report is usually a condition to coverage under the policy (if coverage is found to exist). Two. The insurer will commence an investigation of the occurrence. This may be done by in-house adjusters, or the insurer may hire outside adjusters to investigate. Trio. Depending upon typr pg occurrence, elements of the investigation will include police reports, photographs, diagrams, witness statements, statements of the insured and as many other people as may have skill of the “who where, when, why, and how” factors. Four. Assuming that the claimant was injured, the adjuster will want to collect medical records of treating practitioners, therapists, and others. These will be assessed for objective and subjective complaints of injury, indicia of preexisting conditions, prescriptions, and other types of medical care and therapy. Five. The adjuster will also need to know how the injury has affected the claimant. Work records, including lost time/income, inability to perform work-related functions, etc. will be significant. The adjuster will also want to know how the injury has affected other aspects of the claimant’s life–participation in activities, etc. Age of the claimant will also be a factor, because (1) a serious, permanent injury will adversely affect a junior person longer; (Two) a less-serious injury to a junior person is likely to heal better; (Three) an injury to an older person will affect the person for a shorter time, but is less likely to readily resolve. 6. The adjuster will need to determine if there is any fault om the claimant. Depending upon the jurisdiction involved, the rule of law may be such that recovery of damages is precluded or diminished depending upon the fault factor (based on “comparative” or “contributory” negligence). 7. Most insurers have ranges within which they lodge claims, based upon the above factors, and others. They also look to jury verdict research to determine what similar injuries are “bringing” when suit is filed and the cases go to trial. For the most part, the aim is to resolve a claim amicably if it is possible to do so. In fact, insurers have the obligation to lodge a claim within policy thresholds (the maximum amount payable as liability benefits) if it is possible to do so, rather than subject the policyholder to suit and to the risk of a verdict against him/her/it that is in excess of policy thresholds. Insurers also consider the expenses that they incur in defending a lawsuit (defense attorney fees and court costs) in making the decision.
What is the minimum amount of liability insurance coverage required for puny businesses in the state of Florida?
If you are speaking of non-auto liability insurance for your business, the state imposes no requirements. That said, if you lease business space from a third-party, the lease may prescribe minimum insurance boundaries, and will generally require that the landlord be named as an extra insured. The amount of non-auto liability insurance that it is prudent to have is another question. It depends upon various factors, not the least of which is whether your business is open to the public (such as a store). If it is not, you will still want liability insurance to cover potential risk exposures relative to the products that you produce or sell. Overall, you have to look to the risk factors attending your business, and assets that you wish to protect. Your best bet is to consult a licensed commercial insurance agent/broker.
