In Deland, Property Damage Liability and Bodily Injury are important insurance coverages to know. Insurance laws in most states require that drivers 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. This typically involves damage to another person’s car, but it might also include things like damage to a fence, home, mailbox, or guardrail.
Property Damage Liability claims are made when you're responsible for damaging another person's property. It will not help pay for your car's accident-related damages. 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 walk you through the ins-and-outs of other important coverages like Collision, Comprehensive, Under/Uninsured Motorist, and Medical Payments.
When it comes to Property Damage Liability in Deland, how much liability insurance should you have? It depends. You have two options: go with Florida's minimum Property Damage Liability limits as required by law or choose 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. Selecting the minimum limits may help you find the cheapest auto 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 goes beyond your limit, you may have to pay the difference.
