No. Liability insurance is, by its nature, third-party insurance. That means that proceeds are paid to the person(s) that are hurt as a result of your negligence. It does, however, indemnify you for your carelessness up to the amount of coverage that you purchased. If sued for the collision by someone claiming bodily injury, the insurer will also provide a defense attorney.
Somewhat analogous to bodily injury coverage is uninsured motorist coverage. It is a form of very first party coverage, meaning that you buy it for yourself. If you are hurt by the negligence of another driver, and that person does not have bodily injury liability insurance, you may have a claim for damages under your uninsured motorist coverage.

Life insurance is not a product that is designed to pay yourself. It is designed to leave a benefit after you have passed. So there is no point in which you can collect on your own benefit.

The specifics on this rider would have to be reviewed with the specific insurance company you work with however. The only way that you can collect on your own insurance policy is if you own a Cash-value based policy, from which you can borrow or give up the cash value; or if you own a Come back of premium Term Life policy and have outlived the Term period, in which you would receive a 100% rebate of all premiums paid.

It depends upon the coverage that you purchase. Normally, when you buy liability insurance, you get both property harm and bodily injury liability coverage.

In that sense, it protects you from private liability up to the policy thresholds that you have bought.

The insurer pays the attorney’s fees and related court costs (such as, but not limited to, court reporter expenses).

Can any individual take out an insurance policy on a car that they do not own and collect?
Yes and no. The response to the question goes to the concept of “insurable interest”. This is a legal principal that refers to the fact than a person must have an interest in the object of the insurance. It is this that distinguishes insurance to a wagering agreement. The essence of insurable interest is that the person taking out the policy must stand to lose something (in the case of a car, economic value) if the car is bruised or ruined. More often than not, physical harm insurance is purchased by the possessor of a vehicle. It is then clear that an insurable interest exists because he/she/it stands to lose if the vehicle is bruised or ruined. Therefore, the insured can collect. Someone who does not own a vehicle may also have an insurable interest sufficient to support an insuring agreement. Examples would be someone who leases a car and is required to comeback the car at the end of the lease in essentially the same physical condition as it was at the lease inception. Another example would be a person who does not own the car but has a right to use it. The right to use it has a value and is therefore a sufficient insurable interest to support an insuring agreement.
Is liability insurance covered on all vehicles possessed?

Does liability insurance fullfill coverage law on any car possessed even if its not listed on the card?

In Georgia the State requires that each insurance company electronically transmit to the State Department of Motor Vehicles issuance and cancellation of all vehicles for required insurance. The Officer can take the tag number and verify that it has insurance on it that day. It works much better that I thought it would.
