Glossary

Liability

Personal

Pays for property damage and injury costs to others on your property or adjacent. Pays for legal defense costs as well, if you get sued.

Medical Payments

Covers medical bills for those who are injured on your property. The difference between personal liability coverage and this, is the medical payment limit will be used before the personal limit. The personal limit may not be used at all unless the injured sues the insured.

Personal Insurance Protection

This Pays for damages to someone's name including:

  • Defamation of name
  • False arrest
  • Libel
  • Malicious prosecution
  • Publication that violate's privacy
  • Slander
  • Wrongful conviction

Business Pursuits

Personal

Personal Property

Add the special coverage endorsement to get your personal property coverage to include all perils except for aircraft, earthquake, flood, govermental seizure, intentional loss, nuclear, ordinance or law, and war.

Actual Cash Value

Actual cash value is the value and method used to replace your personal property. The insurance company inventories your lossed personal property and calculates the current value of it (Purchase Price – Depreciation).

Replacement Cost

This is a coverage you can have instead of actual cash value. Instead of the insurance company only paying the depreciated value of your personal property they will pay the amount it would cost to replace your personal property today.

Special Items Coverage

You can create limits on specific types of items. For example, jewelery, art, firearms, etc. This ensures that the insurance company will pay for a specific group of items on top of paying a general sum of everything which may not add up to the cost to replace your special items.

Other

Loss of Use

In the event that you cannot live in your home, this will pay for expenses incurred outside the homes. Examples of this includes eating out and hotel stay.

Deductible

An insured will pay up to the deductible amount before the insurance company will pay any money for your policy. A deductible is usually a dollar amount (eg. $1,500) but also can be a percentage of the dwelling limit (eg. 1%- A dwelling limit set at $300,000 would make the 1% deductible $3,000). In some states you may have a seperate deductible for damages from wind and hail.
