In Atlanta, Property Damage Liability and Bodily Injury are important insurance coverages to know. Most states have insurance laws that require drivers to maintain a minimum amount of BI and PDL. When you're at-fault for a car accident, your Bodily Injury helps pay for the other drivers and passengers medical expenses. It doesn't help pay for 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 typically involves damage to another 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 does not cover damage to your own vehicle that might be caused by the same accident. 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 Comprehensive, Collision, Medical Payments, and Under/Uninsured Motorist.
When it comes to Property Damage Liability in Atlanta, how much liability insurance should you have? The answer depends on a few factors. You have two options: go with Georgia's minimum Property Damage Liability limits as required by law or choose higher limits. Property Damage limits operate on a per accident basis. This is different than Bodily Injury Liability which 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. Choosing the lowest limits may help you get cheap car 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 you cause property damage that goes beyond your limit, you may have to pay the difference.
