Some homeowners may know that some medical expenses can be covered by their homeowner’s policy. Medical bills for guests who are injured at your home is something that is covered. If someone is hanging out at your home, and if something unfortunate occurs your homeowners insurance policy can cover.
- It’s odd, but very true: fire departments can charge you for responding to a call. A homeowner’s policy can compensate you for an emergency call up to a certain limit.
- If bad weather happens and trees or plants are damaged you could be compensated for your loss. Which is handy, considering the cost of plants and landscaping these days. Keep in mind that there’s a limit (typically about $500 per item), but you can always increase the coverage amount to meet your needs.
