LiabilityPro: Your personal liability insurance solution
In a country with a large population like China, the distance between people is greatly narrowed, which means accidents are bound to happen more often. While you might be the victim sometimes, other times, you might involuntarily be the cause. From riding scooters and bikes to playing various sports or having pets and children around, you might accidentally cause property damage, bodily injuries, or both to others and get yourself into legal problems.
In this Pacific Prime article, we will analyze the potential exposures or risks facing individuals like yourself, and introduce you to a unique personal liability insurance solution: LiabilityPro, which could safeguard you and your family in case of occasions such as the ones previously mentioned.
Foreseeable risks around you
Have you encountered or do you foresee any of the below occurring to you or your loved ones?
Not only do sports help you get fit, but they also stimulate your brain to release more dopamine, especially ball games with others like football and basketball. However, more physical interaction means more risk. Even if you are careful, there is still a chance that you might injure your players, opponents, audience, or anyone passing by.
*Please note that professional players cannot be covered in specific sports by LiabilityPro.
Scooter, bike, balance bike, etc.
In big cities like Beijing and Shanghai, you might spend too much time in traffic if you drive a car. That’s why more and more expats nowadays choose to ride different kinds of bikes or scooters. If you’ve already given it a go, you might have noticed that pedestrians and cyclists often don’t obey the rules. Road conditions have also gotten worse, especially after the popularity of shared bikes, making it easier to have an accident than before.
As cute and little as they may be, kids can sometimes have difficulty controlling their behavior and bring trouble to others. Unlike busy adults, they seem to have a lot of energy that has nowhere to go. No matter how much you try, you can’t always keep an eye on them either. From destroying others’ belongings to fighting with other children, kids have more damage power than you might think.
Our furry fellows might have hostility towards strangers. Even though they seem gentle in daily life, they might attack whoever they consider a potential enemy. There is also a certain risk that they might unintentionally escape from your hands and cause damage.
Before getting into the details of the LiabilityPro plan, let’s look at some real-life examples.
The insured accidentally knocks over the soup bowl in the hand of the waiter when eating in a restaurant, causing the customer at the next table to be scalded. The insured is liable to pay for the victim’s medical expenses.
The insured’s kid in a kindergarten unintentionally pushes another child off a slide and causes fractures. The insured is liable to pay for the victim’s medical expenses.
The insured accidentally hits a pedestrian when riding a bicycle, causing the pedestrian to fall and get injured.
A kettle with boiled water breaks the glass table in the hotel the insured is staying in, so the insured is liable to pay compensation to the hotel.
The insured asks a plumber to repair leaking pipes causing water seepage downstairs. If the downstairs neighbor’s property is damaged, the insured is liable to pay for property loss.
