Most of the auto insurance packages come with liability insurance included, since it is usually required by the law. The main purpose of the liability insurance is to provide compensation in case of an accident.
In order to make things clearer for you, when you, for example, are involved in a car crash and you have liability insurance in place, the insurance company will pay compensation to the other side.

Uninsured Motorist: Can be for either property harm or bodily injury, and essentially makes your carrier step in when the at-fault party is either uninsured or doesn’t have enough coverage to treat all your damages.

Does the liability coverage on your auto insurance cover you against a liability exposure if you are at fault in an accident and a passenger in your car is killed in the accident?
It should, up to the amount of the policy. It is possible that your liability could exceed that amount, particularly if you had only “legal minimum”. And I suppose there could be some situations spelled out in your policy, maybe DUI or commission of a crime, that might create an exception. There may also be an issue if the passenger is a member of your household. #Two answ: Better read your insurance policy. Most liability insurance covers ONLY the person and property of another vehicle and not your own ESPECIALLY if you are at fault. .

Are auto warranty companies exempt from carrying general liability insurance coverage?
GL requirement for businesses .
No – they are not exempt – there truly is no requirement for General Liability insurance such as there is in some states for auto insurance..
To my skill there are no general laws that require any company to carry General Liability insurance. There may be local or state laws that require proof of insurance to access privileges, such as being licensed to conduct business in a town or state. Many entities require proof of coverage such as customers, lienholders, mortgagees, licensing entities (city, state, business, professional licenses), and many more. I do not believe there is a blanket “law” or requirement that applies to all business entities. In practical fact, it is the stakeholders in and around any business that “require” insurance to make the risk of doing business with the entity one that is somewhat managed..
Auto warranty companies may be only selling a promise to provide a service through another entity – the dealer or repair shop – and therefor attempt to advise an unhappy customer that they don’t need insurance, i.e. go see the entity that was to provide the maintenance/repair. That does not mean the warranty company does not have insurance; most very likely they carry both General Liability and Professional Liability. It is most likely they carry a VERY high deductible andREINSUREthe rest and are most likely part of aRisk Retention Groupwhich furtherreinsuresthe exposure.
