In Covington, Property Damage Liability and Bodily Injury are important insurance coverages to know. 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). 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 might also include things like damage to a guardrail, fence, mailbox, or home.
You'll need your Property Damage Liability coverage if you're responsible for causing damage to 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 can connect you with important coverage 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 Covington? It depends on the driver and the state. You could get Tennessee's minimum Property Damage Liability limits as required by law, but you could also go with higher limits. Coverage "limits" are maximum amounts of money that your car insurance will pay out if you make a claim. Property Damage limits can range from $5,000 to $100,000 depending on the state and company. Going with low limits could help you find cheap auto 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 ends up totaling more than your coverage limit, you could be required to make up the difference out of your own pocket.
