By now, we’ve all heard about the Pokémon Go craze; recently, headlines have shifted to the myriad accidents this cyber game is causing. From fender benders to falls, catching Pokémon has become quite dangerous!

Whether you’re behind the wheel or your business’ counter, insurance can help protect you as you capture Pikachu.

Homeowners/Renters Insurance
This insurance protects your home while you’re away — so if there’s a break-in or fire while you’re hunting for Pokémon, your belongings will be covered.

Tip: Take inventory of your belongings to make filing a claim easier.

Auto Insurance
The Pokémon-related car accidents have been noteworthy; be sure you’re adequately covered before hitting the town in search of Pokémon. (And, designate a driver so you can search freely. Never, ever text and drive!)

Tip: Review your policy and make sure you carry liability insurance to protect against fender benders where the other driver’s at fault.

Cyber Insurance
Whenever you’re using your phone, data breaches are a possibility. Especially when you’re at a Pokestop or other community wifi spot.

Tip: Make sure your passwords are secure before heading out to catch Pokémon.

So get out and have fun! Despite the headlines, many are touting the benefits of this game, including boons to small businesses and extra exercise.
