Homeownership is a dream for many Americans, but it also presents certain liability risks. An accident or incident that injures a third party could lead to an expensive lawsuit. Without personal liability insurance, the homeowner could lose valuable assets and possibly experience lasting financial consequences.
While a standard homeowners insurance policy can reduce some exposure to risk, it typically comes with low liability limits that can leave the policyholder vulnerable. What’s more, homeowners coverage can be difficult to obtain particularly if there is a claims history, property value change, bankruptcy, or hazard issues on the property.
Prime Can Provide Personal Liability Coverage
Are you an insurance agent or producer seeking protection for a high-risk client? Prime Insurance Company can help by offering excess and surplus lines personal liability coverage that picks up where base policies leave off. We can also provide protection in situations where the insured isn’t eligible for a plan in the standard market. Our programs offer true peace of mind by paying large claims and lawsuit judgments up to the chosen limits and covering legal defense costs.
In addition to recreational equipment and devices that are not covered by traditional insurance, animal liability coverage is also available. Individual liability coverage is important to pet owners because if the canine bites, scratches, knocks down, or causes harm to a third party, liability insurance protection is in place.
