In Columbia, Property Damage Liability and Bodily Injury are important insurance coverages to know. Insurance laws in most states require that drivers 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 comes in handy when you cause an accident that damages someone else's property. It will help pay for this 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.
You'll need your Property Damage Liability coverage if you're responsible for causing damage to another person's property. Your accident-related vehicle damages are not paid for under this coverage. 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 Medical Payments, Comprehensive, Collision, and Under/Uninsured Motorist.
When it comes to Property Damage Liability in Columbia, how much liability insurance should you have? It depends on the driver and the state. You can choose to go with the minimum Property Damage Liability limit required by law in Tennessee, or you can 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 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 ends up totaling more than your coverage limit, you might be responsible for paying the difference.
