In Anniston, Property Damage Liability and Bodily Injury are important insurance coverages to know. By law, most states require drivers to maintain a minimum amount of BI and PDL. 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). Property Damage Liability comes in handy when you cause an accident that damages someone else's property. It will help pay for this 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'll explain the details of other coverages that can help like Medical Payments, Comprehensive, Collision, and Under/Uninsured Motorist.
How much liability insurance should you get when it comes to Property Damage Liability in Anniston? The answer depends on a few factors. You could get Alabama's minimum Property Damage Liability limits as required by law, but you could also go with higher limits. The liability insurance "limits" are the maximum amounts the policy will pay out for an accident. Property Damage limits can range from $5,000 to $100,000 depending on the state and company. Going with 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 ends up totaling more than your coverage limit, you might be responsible for paying the difference.
