The Other Structures section provides coverage for other items on your property such as fences, sheds, and detached garages. Typically this coverage is set to about 10% of your Coverage A, but it should be adjusted up if there is a need for increased coverage limits.
One easy way to describe what this covers is if a house was to be turned upside down and shaken, what would fall out is what would apply to this coverage section. Examples of personal property include, furniture, electronics, clothes and toys.
This coverage provides for reimbursement for additional living expenses in the case that a covered peril caues damage to your home that makes it unlivable. In this case you may need to move out of the home and rent a different home or a hotel room in the interim.
This section provides protection against things like medical bills and legal fees if someone happens to be injured on your property or in the case you are found liable, ie if your dog bites someone. Certain factors can make your home more risky in this regard. Examples include trampolines and pools.
This section provides protection against payments for minor medical bills to those injured on your property. The typical coverage amount for a standard policy is limited to $5,000 per claim. It is possible for this portion of the policy to provide a payout even when the injury was not your fault.
