Do you drive in Searcy? Property Damage Liability and Bodily Injury Liability are coverages you need to know about. Most states have insurance laws that 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, 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 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 does not cover damage to your own vehicle that might be caused by the same accident. 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 Comprehensive, Collision, Medical Payments, and Under/Uninsured Motorist.
What's the best amount of liability insurance to have in terms of Property Damage Liability in Searcy? It depends on the driver and the state. You can choose to go with the minimum Property Damage Liability limit required by law in Arkansas, or you can go with higher limits. Property Damage coverage is on a per accident basis, while Bodily Injury operates on a per person/per accident basis. Property Damage limits vary by state and insurance company. Liability limits can range between $5,000 and $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 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 may have to pay the difference.
