Umbrella Insurance and Your Business
Your Umbrella insurance, also called excess liability insurance, is exactly what it sounds like; it's a safety umbrella to cover and protect you in the event of an emergency. An emergency in this case would be any tragedy that would cost your company beyond your existing coverage limits.
How Umbrella Insurance Works
Say you had a car accident in your work vehicle on the way to the construction site, and the settlement from the collision was $1.5M. Now imagine that the current limit on your commercial auto policy is only $1M. Who is left holding the check for the other half a million dollars?
Unless you have umbrella insurance to cover your business, you are responsible for covering the remainder of any settlement above and beyond what your current policy will pay. As with most things in life, safe is better than sorry.
