Do you drive in Fredericksburg? 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. 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. 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 coverage comes into play when you are responsible for damages to 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 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 Fredericksburg? The answer depends on a few factors. You could get Virginia's minimum Property Damage Liability limits as required by law, but you could also 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. Depending on the state and company, liability limits for Property Damage can range from $5,000 to $100,000. Selecting 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 might be responsible for paying the difference.
