Defending Against Property Damage Claims
Property damage occurs with someone knowingly damages the property or vehicle of another to varying degrees or damages property to defraud an insurer.
Property damage can be either a felony or a misdemeanor depending on the value of the item(s) that were damaged. There is no minimum amount of monetary value for a property damage charge. Therefore, even if the smallest of trinkets with little monetary value were to be damaged intentionally or knowingly by another, an individual who damages another’s property could possibly be charged with property damage.
