Nothing screams liability like recreational high jinks. We all like to have fun in our downtime, and an adrenalin rush is often just the thing to remind us that we are alive and well. Harrison Insurance and Financials LTD, serving Hailey, ID, wants you to know more about recreational insurance and liability.
Outdoor activities are often more fun with recreational vehicles and friends. This combination means that you need to make sure that your recreational insurance policy has cover from a liability perspective. Liability is when you are legally responsible for an incident or event that may cause damage to another person or their property. Having adequate liability insurance affords you financial protection when things go wrong.
In Idaho, you must, by law, maintain two types of liability insurance on your vehicles, including off-road and recreational vehicles.
Bodily Injury Liability Insurance
This type of liability insurance helps pay for the other person’s injuries, including medical bills. The minimums are $25 000 per person and $50 000 per accident. The amounts are not that high, and it might be worthwhile purchasing additional liability insurance, referred to as umbrella insurance.
Property Damage Liability Insurance
This insurance is for when you are legally liable for damage to someone else’s property due to an auto incident. Idaho law requires $15 000 coverage to be maintained.
Check the liability sections in your recreational and auto insurance policies and make sure that you and your passengers have cover for any incidents.
Renew and Review
Liability is one of the most crucial aspects of your policy. When you renew your policy, review it in case the upper limits of your liability need to change. Do not take any risks. Speak to the people at Harrison Insurance and Financials LTD serving Hailey, ID today!
