Third Party Liability Insurance - Tourist

I am currently in Switzerland as a "tourist" whilst I look for work here. Do I need to obtain third party liability insurance whilst I am here as a tourist?

My travel medical insurance plan has a low coverage of $25,000 USD for accidental injury to another person, but I don't think that this is enough.

If I do indeed need better coverage, then up to what amount should I typically be insured for?

Can anyone recommend any providers that offer third party liability as a tourist?

Thanks.

Don't waste your money.
How many times have you injured someone in the past and had to pay compensation?
If you don't drive, don't ski and don't cycle, there's little chance you'll need it.

Another thing to mention is that if you rent - if can come handy, to cover the damages you do to the apartment

You can’t get Swiss insurance as a tourist.

I take your point, but I will be cycling, so I would like to feel covered there.

I won't be renting for the time being.
