Do you drive in Bartlett? Property Damage Liability and Bodily Injury Liability are coverages you need to know about. 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. Property Damage Liability, on the other hand, helps pay for damage to another person’s property that occurs in an accident you cause. 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 worried about having a financial cushion to help cover your own after-accident costs, give us a call. We'll walk you through the ins-and-outs of other important coverages like Medical Payments, Comprehensive, Collision, and Under/Uninsured Motorist.
When it comes to Property Damage Liability in Bartlett, how much liability insurance should you have? It depends on the driver and the state. You can choose to go with the minimum Property Damage Liability limit required by law in Tennessee, or you can go with higher limits. Property Damage coverage operates on a per accident basis, unlike 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. Selecting the lowest limits may help you get cheap car insurance, but it also means that you could be responsible for paying for the property damage you cause that your insurance doesn't cover. So, if you cause property damage that goes beyond your limit, you might be responsible for paying the difference.
