Warm weather has arrived and everyone is beginning their yard work. Mowing, planting
flowers, and digging those vegetable gardens. There is a lot of work to be done.
So let's say that you dig a large hole in the front yard so you can plant a new tree. You
walk away for a moment and while you're gone the kid next door runs through the yard,
falls in the hole, and breaks his ankle.
Unfortunately, you could be held responsible. But not to worry, your homeowner's
liability insurance is made for these kind of situations. It will pay if someone is injured
on your property. It's the coverage that protects you if the dog bites your child's friend
(as long as it's not a restricted breed) or if your cousin falls down your front steps.
If you have a large number of assets, then you'll want higher liability coverage. If the
injury exceeds your liability coverage amount, then you could be sued for the difference.
Work with your agent to determine the amount of coverage that you are comfortable
No one can protect themselves by just being careful alone. There are too many
possible scenarios that you could never foresee. But with the right insurance coverage,
you'll never have to worry.
