Accident Damage: Personal Property Repair, Replacement, or Cash Payout



Property is described as real property, which is land, buildings, and attached fixtures-OR personal property, which is everything else. Personal property can be tangible, such as a vehicle or camera, or a computer notebook, or intangible, such as rights to an investment or rights to a cause of action.

This part covers tangible personal property that is not attached to a vehicle or to a house, such as a camera, computer notebook, portable electronic devices, clothing, cellular phone, anything one is carrying or transporting in the vehicle, and the like.

There are a number of ways in which property can be valued for insurance purposes, and it may depend upon whether or not you are making a third party claim versus the tortfeasor's policy or a first party >define] claim against your own auto or homeowner's policy.
