Do you drive in Greenwood? 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. 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. Property Damage Liability, on the other hand, helps pay for damage to another person’s property that occurs in an accident you cause. 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 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. 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 Comprehensive, Collision, Medical Payments, and Under/Uninsured Motorist.
How much liability insurance should you get when it comes to Property Damage Liability in Greenwood? It depends. You have two options: go with South Carolina'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 can range from $5,000 to $100,000 depending on the state and company. Choosing 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 the property damage you cause in an accident is more than your coverage limit, you could be required to make up the difference out of your own pocket.
