While multiple injured parties can receive a settlement in an accident, one caveat is important to mention. All claim settlements will be limited to the driver’s insurance policy maximums. If the claimants combined damages exceed the insured’s policy limits, they will have to look for alternative sources of restitution.

For example, if more than one party files a liability claim against an at-fault driver, the driver's per accident bodily injury liability coverage will have a cap. In Georgia, drivers must carry bodily injury liability of $25,000 per person injured and $50,000 per accident.

If three other drivers file a claim against one at-fault driver, and each have injury-related damages of $20,000, then all three claims would exceed the $60,000 policy limits.
