The pizza delivery person is knocking at your door. You open the door, letting him into the hall while you get your wallet. As he is entering your home he slips on your door mat and falls flat on his back and bumps his head. He manages to save the pizza, so everything is fine, right? Wrong. Now he can’t work because of a back injury and is taking you to court. What do you do? If you have tenants insurance, you will be covered.
Tenants Insurance: Liability
Now there is a pretty good reason to have tenants insurance. You're liable for anything that happens in your apartment. If your landlord doesn’t salt the walkway in the winter that is his negligence, but if you have unsafe conditions in your own living area, you are responsible if someone hurts himself/herself. If the injury is serious enough, you could end up paying damages in court.
Do you know the value of everything you own? If you lost everything, could you afford to replace it?
