Split Limits

Split Limits

Definition

Many auto insurance policies use the split limits approach, which combines the per person and the per occurrence approach. With split limits, three separate dollar amounts apply to each accident.

  • The first limit is a per person limit: the maximum amount that will be paid to any one injured person.
  • The second limit is a per occurrence limit: the maximum amount that will be paid to all injured persons.
  • The third limit is a per occurrence limit that applies to property damage claims; this is the maximum amount that the insurer will pay for damage to other cars or property resulting from the accident.
