A personal umbrella policy is critical coverage, designed to help protect you from life’s unexpected events.A personal umbrella can help protect you in situations, such as:
- Bodily injury liability
- Landlord liability
- Slander and libel
- Homeowners Liability
- Property damage liability (damage or loss you cause to another party’s property)
Let’s say you have an auto policy that covers $250,000 in bodily injury and a $1 million personal umbrella policy. After a major at-fault auto accident, you’re found liable for a $1.25 million judgment.
Your auto coverage “runs out” at $250,000—meaning you’re potentially on the hook for the remainder. That’s where your personal umbrella coverage steps in, picking up where your auto coverage stops and covering the remaining $1,000,000.
Could this happen? Someone slips on your sidewalk or falls while walking down the stairs. Hospital and doctor visits can add up quickly, and if the injury happened on your property, you could be responsible for covering the costs.
A personal umbrella policy could help protect you in the event that a guest is injured in your home. Personal umbrella protection may cover the difference between your home insurance liability limit and the actual judgment—up to your personal umbrella limit—which could be potentially millions of dollars—helping protect your family’s finances and future.
You are most at risk when your insurance is most at risk. Consider these times that we stongly recommend buying an Umbrella.
