In Greenville, 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. When you're at-fault for a car accident, your Bodily Injury helps pay for the other drivers and passengers medical expenses. It doesn't help pay for yours. If you cause an accident and damage another person's property, Property Damage Liability will help pay for the damage. The "property" that's damaged is typically the other person's car, but it could also include damage to a home, mailbox, fence, street sign, or guardrail.
Property Damage Liability coverage comes into play when you are responsible for damages 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.
What's the best amount of liability insurance to have in terms of Property Damage Liability in Greenville? It depends. You can choose to go with the minimum Property Damage Liability limit required by law in Mississippi, or you can go with higher limits. Property Damage limits operate on a per accident basis. This is different than Bodily Injury Liability which operates on a per person/per accident basis. Depending on the state and company, liability limits for Property Damage can range from $5,000 to $100,000. Choosing low limits could help you find cheap 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 the property damage you cause in an accident is more than your coverage limit, you might be responsible for paying the difference.
