Ever wonder what those coverage limits mean?

You see 20/40, 50/100, 100/300, 250/500 on your auto insurance policy, but what does it mean? It’s actually VERY important information for you to know. We asked our friends @Kimballcookeinsurance to explain. 

When it comes to limits in parts 3, 5 and 12 of the personal auto policy, they are often listed as 20/40, 50/100, etc. The first number indicates the limit available per person, and the second number indicates the total limit available per accident. For example, if an insured has limits of 50/100, the most any one person can receive from that policy is $50,000 and the most that will be paid for the entire accident is $100,000.

So, if you get into a serious accident that causes serious bodily injury, your coverage might not be sufficient to cover the injury claims. Talk to your agent about coverage limits and what’s right for you.
