Do You Need a Liability Umbrella Insurance Policy?
Most people have heard of a liability umbrella policy (aka: umbrella policy), but they aren’t exactly sure what it is or what it does.
In general, an umbrella policy is ‘additional’ liability coverage designed to payout for a catastrophic event. This policy will pay out only after the underlying
policy limits on the auto or home policy have been exhausted.
In our litigious society it’s a good idea for everyone to purchase a liability umbrella policy, because we are all capable of accidently causing high dollar injuries to others in automobile accident. And almost all of drive a car at least once a day. But there are a few people and situations that are at particularly high risk for needed high liability insurance coverage.
