What is Property and Casualty Insurance?

Property insurance and casualty insurance (also known as P&C insurance) are types of insurance coverage that protect your belongings as well as your potential liability.

Property insurance covers the things you own like your home, car, or motorcycle.

Casualty insurance provides liability coverage to help protect you if you are ever found legally responsible for accidents, injuries, or even potentially damage to other peoples property.

Often, Property and Casualty Insurance is bound together into one insurance policy. Some Examples of Property and Casualty Insurance Policies include:

  • Automobile Insurance
  • Homeowners Insurance
  • Renters Insurance
  • Business Owners Insurance (BOP)
