What is personal injury coverage on a home insurance policy?

The typical homeowner’s insurance policy provides limited coverage for personal injuries or property damage to others for which you may be legally responsible.

The injuries or damages don't have to occur on your property.

Your liability coverage will pay all of the injured person's losses associated with the injury up to the limits of your coverage.

Your policy will describe what types of claims are covered, so make sure to check with your carrier for particular coverage questions. Coverage may vary by state, policy type, and insurer, typically providing a minimum of $100,000 of coverage "per occurrence." There is no deductible for personal liability or medical payment coverage.
