Liability coverage protects you in the event that someone else alleges that you were at fault for an automobile accident. By you, I mean either you as the insured or anyone who is driving your vehicle with your permission. Under state statutes anyone who is a “permissive user” of the vehicle is covered by the liability policy. Liability coverage is the only form of coverage in Virginia that comes close to being mandatory. In reality however it is not mandatory because you can choose to pay an uninsured motorist fee in which event you may go without liability coverage. The minimum coverage allowed in Virginia for liability is $25,000.00.
That $25,000.00 means that the insurance carrier will pay up to $25,000.00 in the event that you were found to be liable for the collision. The insurance carrier will also provide an attorney to defend you. The attorney is one that they chose- not you. Read more about insurance coverage here.
