Personal Liability Insurance
Unfortunately, so do lawsuits. Make sure you're prepared.
Personal liability coverage from Nationwide protects you and your lifestyle. Nobody wants or expects to be sued. But if you are held personally accountable and legally liable for certain injuries or property damage, we can help you be prepared. With personal umbrella liability (PUL) insurance from Nationwide, you can give yourself the extra coverage you need.
Our PUL policy was designed with your best interest in mind. Take a look at some of the advantages that a Nationwide PUL policy offers.
First, we've made it affordable so that protecting yourself doesn't mean going broke.
You can choose additional coverage from $1 to $5 million above the specified minimum liability limits that you can presently have with your auto and homeowners policies.
Whether you're found guilty or not, your PUL policy provides payment for Nationwide to find you an attorney and for legal expenses (up to your policy limits) incurred in your defense - when it's not provided in the liability coverage of your auto and homeowners protection.
It even provides optional coverage for you and your family if the other party is uninsured or has minimal coverage.
Understand the risks.
Today, the courts are awarding larger amounts than ever before in personal liability cases. The best way to be ready is with a PUL policy. But it also helps to understand some of the reasons a person could sue.
You could be legally liable for a number of things, including:
Car accidents, despite contributing factors such as weather, unfamiliar roads or driver experience.
Accidental falls on your property
Swimming pool accidents
Home playground mishaps
Accidents involving boat, ATV, snowmobile, jet ski or other watercraft
Golf course injuries
Libel and slander
Invasion of privacy
