Renters personal liability protection

Stuff happens...and sometimes it's not always good. In the event that you are sued, your renter's personal liability protection helps to cover the associated legal costs and related damages.

Most renters policies provide $100,000 (minimum) of financial protection against liability claims and lawsuits brought by others for accidental bodily injury or damage to their property:

  • while in your apartment
  • caused by your personal activities, including most sports
  • caused by your children or pets.

Liability protection also includes medical payments coverage. For example, Travelers will pay up to $1,000 per person -- regardless of your legal responsibility -- when an accident involves bodily injury to others. Higher amounts of coverage are available.
