Do you drive in Wetumpka? 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 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. This typically involves damage to another 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. It will not help pay for your car's accident-related damages. Give us a call if you're not sure how you'd pay for your own after-accident costs. We'll explain the details of other coverages that can help 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 Wetumpka? The answer depends on a few factors. You have two options: go with Alabama's minimum Property Damage Liability limits as required by law or choose 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. Choosing the minimum limits may help you find the cheapest auto insurance, but it also means that you could have to shell out more of your own money to pay for property damage you cause that your insurance doesn't cover. So, if the property damage you cause in an accident is more than your coverage limit, you may have to pay the difference.
