There are many types of personal insurance you can buy to protect yourself. The most common policy would be a personal auto policy which protects you from losses when you are in your vehicle. The next most common form of personal insurance would be a Homeowners Policy or a Renters Policy. These policies protect your home (with the homeowners policy) as well as your personal property within your dwelling. You will find that a renters policy is not very expensive and is well worth the cost.
From there you can buy a personal umbrella, if you have a lot of assets this may be a good buy. A personal umbrella increases the underlying limits of liability on the policies it goes over by the amount of the umbrella.
The next most common personal insurance items are Health and Life policies.
