What is Umbrella Insurance?
Umbrella insurance earns its name by arching over other policies, providing coverage when homeowners or auto policies reach their limit. In addition to paying for damages caused by an accident or unintended event, umbrella coverage can also help you protect your assets and future earnings by providing additional liability coverage.
Excess Liability Coverage
Covering the Unexpected
From dog bites to accidental injuries on a trampoline in your backyard and more, seemingly everyday items can pose a potential risk to both your own family and guests on your property. Without umbrella coverage, you could have to pay out of pocket for costs that exceed the limits of your home, auto or farm/ranch policies.
Accidents on the Road
In the event you were liable for an accident on the road and the costs exceeded the limits of your auto coverage, umbrella coverage can step in to cover the additional costs. With limits typically much higher than the average auto, farm/ranch or homeowners limits, umbrella coverage is truly providing that overarching protection you need.
Slander, Libel or Defamation
Comments you make in a public forum – social media or otherwise – can have the potential to backfire. If you were to be accused of slander, libel or defamation, your umbrella policy could be there to back you up, providing coverage for legal defense, attorney fees and amounts of damages that are awarded as judgments if owed.
