If you’re ever faced with an unusually high liability claim or judgement, umbrella coverage is designed to help. In addition to your homeowners and auto policies, umbrella insurance was created to give you an additional layer of liability coverage over and above your underlying home and auto insurance—an umbrella of protection.
Do I Need an Umbrella Insurance Policy?
If you are found to be legally responsible for injuring someone or damaging their property without a personal umbrella insurance policy, anything beyond your liability insurance coverage will come out of your own pocket. Umbrella insurance helps to protect your personal assets by kicking in when your standard liability coverage is exhausted. Here are some common reasons to obtain an umbrella insurance policy:
- You have significant savings or assets.
- You own property.
- You want to protect against potential losses of income.
- You own a business.
- You coach youth sports.
- You are a landlord.
- You own items, property, or pets that could lead to injury lawsuits.
- You have inexperienced drivers in your household.
What Does Umbrella Insurance Cover?
An umbrella policy can protect you in a variety of ways, including:
- Bodily injury to someone else
- Personal injury to another in the form of libel, slander, or defamation
- Property damage to a person’s car, home, or other personal property
Some insurance carriers also offer excess Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage.
