5 apartment mishaps you think will never happen to you

Posted on July 7, 2014

You don’t have to be unusually careless for something to go wrong in your home. Apartment
insurance can help cover you when your momentary lapses of reason, or just plain bad luck,
turn into potential headaches.

Your bathtub overflows 

You have the flu, and you decide to run a hot bath to help you feel better. Then you fall asleep on
the couch. You wake up to the sound of your downstairs neighbor banging on your door, and
step into an inch of water that reaches as far as your living room.

Your toaster oven catches fire

You’ve been meaning to clean out all those English muffin crumbs from out of it, but a little smoke adds flavor right? That is, until you’re in the other room getting dressed and you realize you’ve started your own bonfire next to the refrigerator.

Your dog bites a delivery person 

You don’t know what it is about the cable guy that your dog finds so threatening. Whatever it is,
it’s enough to make Rusty jump out of your arms and bite the man’s ankle. He decides to go to
the hospital, just in case, and asks you to pay his medical bill.

You leave your apartment door unlocked

You were just going around the corner to pick up your laundry. Five minutes later you come
back to find your TV and laptop missing.
