All homeowners should purchase and maintain homeowner liability insurance. Depending on the policy, it may or may not cover the injuries or accidents that the lawsuit alleged. If your homeowner’s insurance refuses to provide legal counsel or refuses to cover your expenses for the accident, then you must seek out a private attorney.
