What’s Covered Under Personal Umbrella Insurance?

Umbrella insurance extends over your other primary policies, including Homeowners insurance, Auto insurance, Boat insurance, RV insurance and more. Here’s how it works. Let’s say you have $200,000 in policy limits with your Auto policy. An accident involving your vehicle causes injuries to the driver and the passengers in the other car. You end up being legally liable for $500,000. A $1 million Personal Umbrella will step in and pay the difference after the limits on your Auto insurance are exhausted. In essence, with Umbrella insurance you have $1.2 million of liability limits available.


Facts About Personal Umbrella Insurance?

Certain individuals and households have a higher liability risk than others. You may have a swimming pool, trampoline, certain breeds of dog, or teen drivers who tend to have liability risks that exceed the ordinary. If you own a boat, host parties, or own guns, you should also consider a Personal Umbrella policy.

In addition, the high cost of medical treatment and automobiles are enough to make one stop and think about how much a bad accident could run. Would your Auto insurance cover the total loss of a $100,000 car and injuries to its occupants? How about a drowning or permanent disability from an accident in your swimming pool or on your boat? You can imagine how quickly your Liability coverage could get eaten up by legal bills and restitution.
