In Bradenton, Property Damage Liability and Bodily Injury are two important insurance coverages to understand. Insurance laws in most states require that drivers 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. 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 it might also include things like damage to a fence, home, mailbox, or guardrail.
Property Damage Liability claims are made when you're responsible for damaging 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.
What's the best amount of liability insurance to have in terms of Property Damage Liability in Bradenton? It depends on the driver and the state. You could get Florida'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. Choosing 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 the property damage you cause in an accident is more than your coverage limit, you may have to pay the difference.
