In Clermont, Property Damage Liability and Bodily Injury are important insurance coverages to know. 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. This typically involves damage to another person’s car, but it could also include damage to a home, mailbox, fence, street sign, or guardrail.
You'll need your Property Damage Liability coverage if you're responsible for causing damage to another person's property. It does not cover damage to your own vehicle that might be caused by the same accident. If you're losing sleep over how you'd pay for your own troubles after a covered accident, just give us a call! We'll explain the details of other coverages that can help like Medical Payments, Comprehensive, Collision, and Under/Uninsured Motorist.
When it comes to Property Damage Liability in Clermont, how much liability insurance should you have? It depends. You can choose to go with the minimum Property Damage Liability limit required by law in Florida, or you can go with higher limits. The liability insurance "limits" are the maximum amounts the policy will pay out for an accident. Depending on the state and company, liability limits for Property Damage can range from $5,000 to $100,000. Going with the lowest limits may help you get cheap car insurance, but it also means that you could be responsible for paying for property damage you cause that your insurance doesn't cover. That's money out of your pocket. So, if you cause property damage that ends up totaling more than your coverage limit, you may have to pay the difference.
