Umbrella Insurance

You should never have to worry about if you have enough coverage. Help yourself avoid gaps from too low of limits with an umbrella policy. It's affordable and provide immense coverage
How Does Umbrella Insurance Work?

Personal umbrella insurance works by expanding your liability coverage in two ways. Most policies increase liability coverage amount to $1 million or more and generally include new covered claims such as libel, defamation, and slander.

If you’re found liable in a lawsuit, your auto, home, or watercraft policy will only cover damages up to a certain limit. After that, any liability expenses become your responsibility. The suing party could claim assets like your life savings, investments, and even your home to gain their full compensation.

Here is where umbrella coverage comes in. Once you’ve exhausted the underlying policy limits, an umbrella policy will pay for the difference, protecting you from losing everything.
