Answer . \nThe term "Full Coverage" can mean many different things to different people. Typically though it means that you have Liability Bodily Injury, Uninsured Motorist Bodily Injury, Collision, and Other Than Collision coverage. In states where Personal Injury Protection is mandatory then y…ou would have that too. Beyond that I would not assume that a person has any additional coverage under a "Full Coverage" policy. This includes towing, rental car reimbursement, or medical payments coverage. In addition to that there are exclusions involved with all of the above mentioned coverage's. Be very carefull in making assumptions about what full coverage means. (MORE)

Homeowners insurance companies will generally offer insurance effective immediately at the time of the quote if you have the down payment, your home does not require an inspection, and if it otherwise meets the underwriting guidelines of the company. The policy is usually effective at 12:01 am the …day the policy is bound. The insurance company will not backdate coverage to a prior date because doing so effectively makes it potentially liable for covered losses that may have occurred before the inception date of coverage, and for which it has not collected a premium.

Specific Question Detail my husband fell off a roof while doing work at a homeowners home , he sustained 7 broken right ribs , a punctured lung and dislocated shoulder. what can i do to get help while he's off work? he spent seven days in the hospital and is unable to get around, we need help with our bills. thank you debbra barbee. Answer The liability for this type of injury would fall on the person or business who accepted the job, not the homeowner. The homeowner and his home insurance company is not liable for a contractors injuries while performing a job unless he or she was the one who intentionally caused your husbands injury. Many states have regulations requiring that home repair contractors carry a license and insurance for just these situations. Your husbands employer should be carrying General Liability and Workers Compensation to cover injuries to his employees while on the job. If your husband is the contractor. He is supposed to be carrying appropriate Insurance to cover his activities as a self employed contractor, otherwise he is taking his chances. Could you imagine a mechanic that gets injured repairing your car and then suing you because it is your car? Everyone would be getting sued all the time. If you hold yourself out to do a job then it is incumbent on that person or business to carry the appropriate coverage for their line of work. Now if your husband was repairing your neighbor or a relatives roof for free and there was no payment agreement involved just as a favor, there might be a small amount of medical coverage usually about 3 thousand dollars for an injury for medical expenses only, But their would be no liability for lost wages or pain and suffering because the homeowner still did not cause the injury. I'm sorry if this does not help your situation much but it's just the way the rules of liability work. (MORE)

Most insurance companies will give you a time frame for how longyour house can be vacant before coverage is canceled. According tothe Insurance Information Institute, most insurers discontinuecoverage on a home if it's unoccupied for more than 30 days.Insurance companies consider vacant homes to be high risks.Unoccupied homes are more likely to experience thefts, vandalism,fire and water damage. Before you vacate your home, take a good look at your insurancepolicy and ask your agent for guidance. Some companies will grantyou a vacancy permit, provided it's requested before the home goesunoccupied. However, the permit does not cover the same perils as yourhomeowners policy. According to the insurance institute, a vacancypermit covers such perils as fire and wind but not theft, vandalismor water damage. If you want to insure your vacant home against the same hazardsyour standard policy covers -- including theft, burglary andvandalism -- you'll need to purchase vacancy insurance.

I think you'd need to check your policy. I had damage from a leaking shower which spoiled the plaster, paint and carpet in the adjacent room and it was not covered by my policy. The insurance company claimed it was a fault in the building work and would be the builder's responsibility (the house wa…s 20 years old at the time, and well out of warranty). It turned out that the fault was that the tile grouting had become old and porous, and it was a relatively cheap fix - we just had to live with the stained wall and carpet. Hopefully, if your home is badly damaged by a split water pipe, your policy will cover it. Best of luck! :-) (MORE)
