In Madison, 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 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 losing sleep over how you'd pay for your own troubles after a covered accident, just give us a call! We can connect you with important coverage that can help like Collision, Comprehensive, Under/Uninsured Motorist, and Medical Payments.
How much liability insurance should you get when it comes to Property Damage Liability in Madison? It depends on the driver and the state. You can choose to go with the minimum Property Damage Liability limit required by law in Georgia, or you can go with higher limits. "Limits" determine the greatest amount of money your car insurance company will pay in the event that you need to use your coverage. Property Damage limits vary by state and insurance company. Liability limits can range between $5,000 and $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 could be required to make up the difference out of your own pocket.
