Do you drive in Florence? Property Damage Liability and Bodily Injury Liability are coverages you need to know about. By law, most states require drivers to maintain a minimum amount of BI and PDL. When you're found to be at fault in a car accident, Bodily Injury helps pay for other drivers and passengers accident-related medical expenses (not yours). Property Damage Liability, on the other hand, helps pay for damage to another person’s property that occurs in an accident you cause. The "property" that's damaged is typically the other person's car, but might also include things like damage to a guardrail, fence, mailbox, or home.
Property Damage Liability coverage comes into play when you are responsible for damages to another person’s property. Your accident-related vehicle damages are not paid for under this coverage. Give us a call if you're not sure how you'd pay for your own after-accident costs. We can connect you with important coverage that can help like Collision, Comprehensive, Under/Uninsured Motorist, and Medical Payments.
What's the best amount of liability insurance to have in terms of Property Damage Liability in Florence? It depends on the driver and the state. You can choose to go with the minimum Property Damage Liability limit required by law in Alabama, or you can go with higher limits. Property Damage coverage is on a per accident basis, while Bodily Injury operates on a per person/per accident basis. Property Damage limits can range from $5,000 to $100,000 depending on the state and company. Going with low limits could help you find cheap auto insurance, but it also means that you could be responsible for paying for the property damage you cause that your insurance doesn't cover. So, if the property damage you cause in an accident is more than your coverage limit, you might be responsible for paying the difference.
