What Insurance Coverage is Available For Damaged Property in Ocala, FL?
In Florida, all drivers are required to carry minimum amounts of car insurance coverage before they can hit the road.
Minimum requirements under current state law include:
- $10,000 in personal injury protection (PIP) coverage, and
- $10,000 in property damage liability (PDL) coverage.
You can certainly purchase a policy with higher limits; these are the bare minimums to get you on the road. If your car was damaged in an accident, you will file a claim against the at-fault driver’s PDL coverage.
What Happens If the Cost of Repairing or Replacing Damaged Property Exceeds My Policy Limits?
Let’s say you get into an accident in your brand new, of-the-lot car. Because the crash was so severe, your car is a total loss. In other words, the cost of repairing the vehicle is more than what it’s worth.
The at-fault party has property damage liability coverage totaling $15,000. It costs $30,000 to replace the vehicle. What can you do about the $15,000 difference? You may have to sue the at-fault driver (or any liable party) directly and receive a personal judgment to recover the difference.
What Kind of Property Damage Can I Get Compensation For After a Car Accident in Ocala, FL?
You can recover compensation for any property that is damaged as a result of an auto accident in Ocala.
- Safety equipment
- Personal property, including anything in the vehicle at the time of the crash
- Property being towed or hauled
You also don’t have to be in a vehicle or involved in an accident to have a claim for property damage. Let’s say the force of a collision sends a vehicle (or two) through your fence, into your front yard, and onto your porch. As a property owner, you’d have the right to demand compensation for damage to your fence, landscaping, and home.
