Can You File A Claim If Your Property Was Damaged in a Single-Vehicle Crash?
Whether you can file a property damage claim after a single-vehicle crash depends on whether you are the driver. If you are the driver, then any property damage caused by your single-vehicle crash will only be covered by your auto insurance if you have a personal injury protection provision included in your insurance policy. However, if you are a property owner instead, whose belongings have been damaged due to the action of a negligent driver, then you have the right to pursue a property damage claim against the driver involved.
