Do you drive in Hot Springs? Property Damage Liability and Bodily Injury Liability are coverages you need to know about. Most states have insurance laws that 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 comes in handy when you cause an accident that damages someone else's property. It will help pay for this damage. This typically involves damage to another person’s car, but might also include things like damage to a guardrail, fence, mailbox, or home.
You'll need your Property Damage Liability coverage if you're responsible for causing damage to another person's property. It will not help pay for your car's accident-related damages. Give us a call if you're not sure how you'd pay for your own after-accident costs. We'll explain the details of other coverages 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 Hot Springs? It depends. You have two options: go with Arkansas's minimum Property Damage Liability limits as required by law or choose higher limits. Property Damage coverage operates on a per accident basis, unlike Bodily Injury Liability which operates on a per person/per accident basis. Property Damage limits vary by state and insurance company. Liability limits can range between $5,000 and $100,000. Selecting the minimum limits may help you find the cheapest 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.
