Do you drive in Bristol? Property Damage Liability and Bodily Injury Liability are coverages you need to know about. 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. Property Damage Liability, on the other hand, helps pay for damage to another person’s property that occurs in an accident you cause. The "property" that's damaged is typically the other person's car, but it could also include damage to a home, mailbox, fence, street sign, or guardrail.
Property Damage Liability claims are made when you're responsible for damaging another person's property. Your accident-related vehicle damages are not paid for under this coverage. If you're losing sleep over how you'd pay for your own troubles after a covered accident, just give us a call! 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 Bristol? The answer depends on a few factors. You have two options: go with Tennessee's minimum Property Damage Liability limits as required by law or choose higher limits. Coverage "limits" are maximum amounts of money that your car insurance will pay out if you make a claim. Property Damage limits vary by state and insurance company. Liability limits can range between $5,000 and $100,000. Selecting 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 could be required to make up the difference out of your own pocket.
