Standard Ohio Homeowners Insurance Coverage
A standard homeowners insurance policy typically offers two kinds of coverage Ð property and liability. Here's what each includes:
- Dwelling: In most standard Ohio homeowner insurance policies this coverage replaces or repairs your home if it's damaged by a covered peril.
- Other Structures: Protects structures on your property besides your home such as detached garages, sheds, fences, etc.
- Contents/Personal Property: Reimburses you if the personal property inside your home is damaged in a covered peril or theft. Residents of Toledo, Akron, and Cincinnati should know that their cities have higher per capita burglary rates than the U.S. norm, according to the 2012 FBI Report on Offenses Known to Law Enforcement. You may need to purchase extra coverage for collectibles, art or expensive jewelry.
- Loss of Use: In the event your home is damaged by a covered peril, Loss of Use coverage can help in paying for alternative accommodations and living expenses while your home is uninhabitable.
These come into play if someone is hurt on your property:
- Personal Liability Protection: Offers help with your legal expenses and any potential judgment if the injured plans to sue.
- Medical Payments: It the injured party doesn't want to sue, medical payments coverage offers help with medical expenses.
Besides occasional severe weather, Ohio is relatively safe from natural disasters. In fact, Akron, Dayton and Cleveland have all been named in the Top 10 Safest U.S. Cities from Natural Disasters by CBSNews.com. But even though Ohio is safe from many natural disasters, there are weather threats that can plague the state. Standard home insurance policies protect homes from wind, fire, hail, and lightning damage, however, standard Ohio homeowners insurance policies do not offer coverage for flood damage.
Remember all the flood victims in the Northeast when Superstorm Sandy hit? Many homeowners were without flood insurance and many of them weren't even located in flood plains. It goes to show that every homeowner should at least consider purchasing a flood insurance policy. Ohio homeowners can purchase flood policies through the National Flood Insurance Program and if you want to check and see if your community lies in a flood hazard zone, then visit FEMA's website.
Get familiar with your current policy and see what perils are covered and which are not. An adjustment in coverage may be necessary to keep your home fully protected.
