First party insurance coverage is an insurance policy in which an insurer covers damages incurred by the insured in the case of an injury, accident, or some other event caused by a third party. In this case, the insured homeowner is the first party, the insurance company is the second party, and an event that causes damage (such as another individual or natural disaster) is considered to be the third party.
In order to offset the unpredictability of life, most homeowners invest in an insurance policy that will cover their property and belongings in the case of an accident or emergency. This form of protection is usually a no-brainer, as most individuals recognize how important it is to protect their property from unforeseen events.
Your home is one of the most central aspects of your life. It is where you gather with your loved ones, store all of your possessions, and unwind when the day is through. Therefore, when any form of damage is done to your property, it can be absolutely devastating.
Some common instances of major damage being done to a home includes:
