Umbrella Insurance for your business
Umbrella Insurance, it’s not just for your personal life, your business needs it too.
What is Umbrella Insurance? Also known as an excess liability policy, it extends the limits of a single underlying general liability, auto liability, employers’ liability, or liquor liability policy.
Many assume that an umbrella policy offers broader protection, which is not the case, an umbrella policy is there to provide extra protection to what you already have.
If it doesn’t offer boarder protection, why do you need it?
Let’s say that something catastrophic were to happen to your business, something far greater than you could have planned for. Your standard commercial insurance policy may reach it’s limit before you’re able to cover all loses sustained.
An umbrella policy is there to provide that extra layer of protection. It can give you access to higher limits of protection from risks, at an affordable rate.
For example, you carry $1 million in General Liability and due to an accident, that took place at your company you are required to pay our $2 million. If you carried a $1 million Umbrella policy, it would cover what your General Liability policy didn’t.
Now let’s say you didn’t have an umbrella policy, you would be paying that additional $1 million out of pocket or selling off assets to cover the difference.
