Atlas co-founder Jason Shepherd was quoted in US News’ recent article about renter’s insurance.
Shepherd says there is an even more important reason to buy a policy: liability protection. Most renters insurance comes standard with liability coverage. That means if your dog bites someone or if you accidentally start a fire that damages an adjoining apartment, your insurance will insulate you from legal action and damages. “The liability insurance is what saves you from those huge mistakes,” Shepherd says.
