- Personal liability covers claims brought against you by others for their bodily injury or damaged property occurring at your home or elsewhere when you, your covered family members or your household pets are at fault.
- Loss of use covers your additional living expenses if/when you are forced to live elsewhere while your home is repaired/rebuilt after a covered peril loss.
