The 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.
