How Important Is Renters Insurance?, Lincoln, Nebraska

Disaster can strike at any time, in the form of fire, serious storms, or criminal activity. Many renters incorrectly assume that their landlord’s insurance policy will cover their belongings if the worst occurs. Watts Insurance Group in Lincoln, NE urges everyone to get renters insurance as possible to protect themselves from the unexpected.

The Consequences of Being Uninsured

local family tragically suffered an apartment fire just days before Christmas. Thankfully, no one was hurt. Still, the damages totaled over $40,000 – an expense that most people can’t afford to cover out of pocket. While the landlord likely had coverage to repair the building itself, without renters insurance, the victims lost their belongings. Donations collected by Watts Insurance Group and others in the community supported the family, but it’s a cautionary tale about the dangers of going without renters insurance. 

What Renters Insurance Covers
