Do you drive in Laurens? 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. 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. This type of damage typically involves the other driver's car, but might also include things like damage to a guardrail, fence, mailbox, or home.
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 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 Laurens, how much liability insurance should you have? It depends on the driver and the state. You could get South Carolina's minimum Property Damage Liability limits as required by law, but you could also go with 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 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.
