Umbrella


What is Umbrella?

This type of insurance supplements your existing General Liability and Business Property and Commercial Auto policies to cover certain catastrophic liability claims. This means that if losses exceed the limits of your general liability coverage under your General Liability and Business Property or Commercial Auto policies, an Umbrella policy may cover the remainder, up to a specified limit. Although the coverage provided under Umbrella policies vary, these policies generally cover a variety of business liability risks.

Why do I need this insurance?

“General liability insurance policies always state a maximum amount that the insurer will pay during the policy period. Usually these policies also list the maximum amount the insurer will pay per occurrence. For example, if a company has a $1 million occurrence cap in its liability policy and it’s successfully sued for $1.5 million, the insurer would pay $1 million and the business would be responsible for paying $500,000.

 

To cover these types of situations, many companies purchase umbrella liability insurance, which picks up where their general liability coverage ends. Umbrella liability covers payments that exceed their other policy’s limits, and provides additional coverage for liabilities not covered in a standard liability insurance policy.”
