Bodily Injury Coverage

An insurance policy purchased in conjunction with car insurance that provides coverage in the event of serious injury as the result of an automobile crash. Bodily injury coverage pays for medical bills of all persons injured up to a certain limit. Usually each person has an individual limit (e.g. $25,000) and the event causing the injuries has a total limit (e.g. $50,000).
