In regards to Homeowners insurance: most homeowners have a mortgage...therefore your home technically belongs to the bank/lender and they need to protect their 'investment' so banks/lenders require that you carry adequate insurance to pay for the damages that may occur to your home or even to pay the debt, in full, should you suffer a major catastrophe & your house is totally destroyed. Remember, the lender has a financial interest in your home. Likewise, most Homeowners Insurance Policies offer Premises and/or Personal Liability coverage One of the most common claims that this type of coverage helps to protect you, is in the case of liability from dog bites. If your dog bites a neighbor either while off-leash or on-leash, this coverage can offer some financial protection. Certain breeds of dogs are automatically EXCLUDED from coverage, so be sure to contact your agent/insurance company for more information.

When a dog bites someone or something.

In general No. Insect bites are usually in the arena of a health insurance policy, not a property insurance policy. A property owner is not automatically liable for injury to a person simply because the injury or insect bite occurred on your property. To establish financial liability the injured person would have to show that the property owner was the direct or proximate cause of the sustained injury, either through action or inaction contrary to that which a prudent person would take. If you feel you may be liable for the insect bite, You should first check your policy and establish whether or not you purchased personal Liability coverage with your policy. If Liability coverage is in place. Report it to your company. Your insuance company will provide coverage for the cost of legal defense for you if necessary and would pay for any damage awarded against you up to your liability limits. Property insurance should never be construed to take the place of a health insurance policy.
