In Jacksonville, Property Damage Liability and Bodily Injury are two important insurance coverages to understand. By law, most states require drivers to maintain a minimum amount of BI and PDL. Bodily Injury helps pay for other drivers and passengers accident-related medical expenses when you're at fault for the accident. It doesn't pay for any of your medical expenses. If you cause an accident and damage another person's property, Property Damage Liability will help pay for the damage. This typically involves damage to another person’s car, but it might also include things like damage to a fence, home, mailbox, or guardrail.
You'll need your Property Damage Liability coverage if you're responsible for causing damage 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'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 Jacksonville? It depends. You could get Arkansas's minimum Property Damage Liability limits as required by law, but you could also go with 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. 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.
