Do you drive in Killeen? 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. 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.
You'll need your Property Damage Liability coverage if you're responsible for causing damage to another person's property. Your accident-related vehicle damages are not paid for under this coverage. 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.
What's the best amount of liability insurance to have in terms of Property Damage Liability in Killeen? The answer depends on a few factors. You could get Texas'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. Depending on the state and company, liability limits for Property Damage can range from $5,000 to $100,000. Going with the minimum limits may help you find the cheapest 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 may have to pay the difference.
