Will Homeowners Insurance from an Insurance Company Cover Personal Injury Claims including Medical Bills and other Personal Liability Coverage?
Yes, the short answer is that an injured person can bring a claim to an insurance company for the homeowner’s insurance benefits of a homeowners policy if they are harmed on someone else’s property.
In order to qualify for the terms of nearly every homeowners policy, the property owner must have acted negligently or with intent to harm or injure you.
If that is how the injury occur, then the person bringing the injury claim, normally with a personal injury attorney and an experienced law firm, can see if the homeowner’s insurance covers will reimburse you for your medical payments coverage, personal assets depreciation, financial compensation losses from missed work, medical expenses, lost wages, personal property losses, and related expenses and damage as well as other third parties claims on the liability limits and insurance coverage.

When Can You Sue a Property Owner?
Whether or not you can sue a property owner or bring a homeowner’s insurance claim through their insurance company depends upon the circumstances of the accident. The law looks at why you were there and how it happened.
For instance, you can ordinarily sue for fall accidents like slip and trips. However, in most states, you must have had an invitation or business reason to be there. Also, the landowner must have negligently and thereby caused it or at least allowed the fall happen.
If this was the case, then the homeowners policy may apply and insurance cover accidents up to the policy limits including supplemental terms. This could include your losses and med pay coverage.
So before you file a claim with a carrier, make sure the owner of the land was responsible, you did not assume the risk, no other third party was to blame, and you have tangible losses or harms.
Here are some other common scenarios where you may be able to seek damages against property owners:
- Dog bite or animal attack
- Burns from a fire
- Falls or other slips and trips
- Broken railing or stairs events
- Battery or assault from a third party due to negligent supervision or security
Call us about the homeowner’s liability event, car accident, or other incident and leave your contact information.
