Homeowners insurance is designed to repair or replace your home in the event it is damaged or destroyed. Homeowners insurance also protects the valuables within your home in the event they are stolen or destroyed; this is termed personal property coverage on the policy. Your homeowners insurance policy also provides you with personal liability insurance. This protects you in case you are named as a defendant in a civil lawsuit. It will not cover the cost of a criminal trial or any penalty set forth in a criminal trial.
