What is umbrella insurance?

Umbrella insurance coverage protects you against a financial disaster due to certain types of events that could lead to injury or property damage for which the policyholder is held liable.

Those who have worked diligently to build significant assets and wealth need this coverage. Why? If you are in a car accident in which you are held liable, will the limits of your liability coverage be enough to settle a lawsuit? With a $100,000 liability limit and a demand for a $1 million settlement, you would be short $900,000.

To settle this lawsuit, your home, any assets you have, or even your business could be at risk.

Simply put, umbrella insurance is excess liability coverage beyond the limits outlined in your homeowners, car, or watercraft insurance policies. It is for costly situations where medical expenses or repairs exceed the limits of these policies. Think of it as “asset” protection against a lawsuit.

Umbrella insurance also covers you for incidents such as slander or defamation lawsuits that other policies do not cover. Usually, all household members are also covered by the umbrella policy.

There is other coverage that is not found in standard homeowners or car insurance policies. For example, detention, false arrest, imprisonment, malicious prosecution, wrongful entry, and invasion of privacy are also covered.

So, contact the pros at Colling Insurance Services Inc. today if you want the added liability protection an umbrella insurance policy can provide. They will give you a no-obligation quote or answers to any questions you may have.
