Personal liability (PL) is included in homeowners insurance. PL includes several different scenarios including negligence for injury and/or damages, libel and slander. If you are sued for libel/slander contact your insurance agent immediately and file a claim. It will cover your attorney fees and damages awarded to the plaintiff IF they prevail. Sometimes there are monetary limits on what the insurance company will pay.
