What is bodily injury liability?

The Bankrate.com financial term of the day is: "bodily injury liability."

With accidents, someone can get hurt. When you injure other motorists, their passengers, or pedestrians, the bodily injury liability part of your car insurance takes care of them and protects you from the bills. It covers medical expenses, also the lost wages of the injured.

If you cause a crash that sends someone to the hospital, your car insurance bodily injury liability coverage goes along to pay the medical bills and other costs.
