If you have assets to protect, such as a home and a vehicle, you may already have home and auto insurance. These are important ways to protect yourself legally and financially in case of injuries in your home or because of an accident with your vehicle. However, the amount of specific coverage through these policies may be too low to handle a significant accident. In those cases, getting personal umbrella insurance is an intelligent way to protect yourself.
Liability Coverage and Overages
When you have liability coverage for your home and vehicle, these policies have several different types of coverage. One of these is liability coverage. Having good liability insurance is vital to having good financial protection against the risk of accidents. When your home or auto policy doesn’t have much liability coverage, you may need to supplement it. You can do that with an umbrella policy. A personal umbrella policy adds more liability coverage to both policies so that you are far better covered against accidents. If you don’t have a supplement and keep very little liability coverage, you could owe money after your policy has paid up to its maximum. This overage can cost you tens of thousands or even more for a serious accident.
Get It Paid With Umbrella Insurance
There is umbrella insurance to avoid overages that you would have to pay yourself. This type of policy kicks in after the first policy has paid up to its maximum. This means that you won’t be stuck with considerable overages to pay. Umbrella insurance has a much higher maximum than most home or auto policies, so it’s good protection financially.
