Does Oklahoma Renters Insurance Cover Liability?
Liability is an important coverage on Oklahoma renters insurance. If you negligently incur liability by causing bodily injury or property damage to someone, the liability coverage on your Oklahoma renters insurance generally can respond and take care of the problem, as well as provide you with necessary defense. This is important because silly things like dropping a gallon of milk at the grocery store and causing someone else to slip in it can result in lawsuits for significant amounts of money and with significant defense cost. Some portion of liability claims are groundless, resulting only from the insured being at the wrong place at the wrong time. Oklahoma renters insurance responds to ridiculous claims like this as well and helps you avoid lost money and lost time.
Does Oklahoma Renters Insurance Cover Damage From Burst Pipes?
The past few winters have been pretty strange. Burst pipes aren’t something most Sooners think about when they consider whether they have enough coverage on their Oklahoma renters insurance. The answer is still yes. As long as you took reasonable care – don’t turn off the heat and go away for a month in February – to prevent the frozen pipes, the water damage to your personal property is generally covered. If you go away and let your landlord know you’ll be away for a few weeks and he doesn’t take reasonable care to make sure the pipes don’t freeze, technically he’s responsible. However, in that instance, Oklahoma renters insurance can respond to replace your damaged personal property. Relax, you’re safe. Oklahoma renters insurance from Effective Coverage has you covered.
What Happens If My Personal Property Is Damaged Through Someone Else’s Negligence?
Is the damage from a covered peril? Let’s take an example: You’re carrying your laptop out to go to work and the neighbor’s kid sprays you with a hose and negligently destroys your laptop in the process. It wasn’t raining, so there’s no reason you should in good faith have been protecting yourself with an umbrella. The damage to your laptop is clearly the result of the child’s negligent act. If the parents have Oklahoma renters insurance, you can certainly file a liability claim with their coverage. If not or if their coverage doesn’t want to respond, you can also file a claim with your own Oklahoma renters insurance. Your personal property coverage will respond to it, and then go after the responsible party’s liability coverage to recover the money. Oklahoma renters insurance is the best way to protect the things you value.
