Do I need renters insurance as a subtenant?
I'm subleasing a house at the moment. The primary tenant doesn't have renters insurance. As the person who's occupying the place, do I need to get renters insurance?
That is a great question, and the answer is a resounding yes! The house’s primary tenant would also be wise to get renters insurance. If your personal property is damaged or stolen while you are subleasing, renters insurance will help you to replace your property.

After a chain-reaction accident, should I pay for damage to the front of my car?
In an accident, I hit a truck in front of me first and then was hit from behind. I filed a claim with the insurer of the driver who hit me from behind. The adjuster said because I hit the truck in front of me first, I should pay for the damage to the front of my car. Is this correct?
