Umbrella insurance gives you added peace of mind knowing you will have additional protection should an event occur. You'll be surprised at how affordable it is.
An umbrella insurance policy can supplement the basic liability coverage provided by your auto, home and boat policies. The rise in lawsuits has made umbrella coverage more imperative for people who want to protect themselves from amounts greater than their basic coverage supplies.
Umbrella insurance basically sits on top of your home, auto or boat insurance to provide added financial protection in the event that your existing policies can't cover the loss. A good example is if a number of people are seriously injured as a result of your negligence in a single incident or multi-car accident. And while you might think a $1,000,000 or $3,000,000 umbrella policy is not in your budget, the good news is umbrella policies are actually very affordable.
Homeowners also need to consider umbrella insurance in special cases when the liability costs of an accident exceed their basic homeowner's policy.
