Why is personal liability so important? Maybe because you can go broke without i

Posted by Elite Internet Technologies on October 10th, 2016

Liability insurance is a kind of indemnity which covers an individual against financial claims for damages. Personal liability insurance is as important as medical insurance. In this case, however, you’re insuring your solvency, rather than your health. The bottom line is never far away in personal liability, and it’s a good idea to have high value cover in place in case you need it.

Not wishing to overstate the case, but a few examples of personal liability risks are relevant:

  • Injury to someone in your home through accident.
  • Property damage caused by your car, kids or other means.
  • Injuries or property damage caused by pets.
  • Injuries or losses sustained by other people in the course of your job or business.

Any one of these cases can cost millions. A severe injury requiring ongoing medical care, for example, may involve a massive payout. People can and do go broke without proper coverage. The result is a personal financial train wreck for some people. People have had to sell their homes to pay for damages, and not even really scratched the total cost of the damages. Businesses, too, have been financially trashed as a result of liabilities.

So – Do you need personal liability coverage? Yes. Whatever your job, your business or your personal income situation, you need this type of insurance. This is basic, almost no-brainer risk management. Protect yourself, and your business, from these risks, preferably ASAP.

The good news is that modern insurers offer full spectrum liability insurance on a custom basis. “Custom” insurance is a type of insurance package which covers the real needs of an individual or business against liabilities of all kinds. You can pretty much get whatever cover you want.

For example – A company called Xinsurance is one of the leading custom insurance providers in the US. If you check out their website here at http://www.xinsurance.com/, this is how custom insurance works in practice. Browse their site, see the different types of insurance, and if appropriate, talk to them about your needs.
