The insurance companies remind you that your standard Homeowners policy is just that – standard.

It also can protect you against lawsuit charges for damages or injuries caused by you, your family or your pets.

But there are other occurrences that your standard NJ Homeowners Insurance may cover as well. And you probably aren't even aware of them.
