For That Extra Peace of Mind

An umbrella insurance can be a cost-friendly addition for excess claims.

What is Umbrella Insurance?

Just like an umbrella adds another layer of protection, an umbrella insurance is there to cover claims that exceed your regular homeowner's, auto, or boat policy.

Umbrella insurance does not cover:

  • Your own medical expenses
  • Losses to your property

An umbrella insurance can be customized to protect your personal assets in the case of a lawsuit. In addition, an umbrella policy can cover multiple members of your household. Coverage includes:

  • Someone in your household causes and injury in a car accident
  • A visitor gets injured on your property
  • Accidental damage to someone else's property
  • Property damage causes by your pet
  • Property damage caused by your child or dependent
  • Attorney fees and legal costs

Such events would most likely already be covered under your existing homeowner's, auto, or boat insurance. However, if you find yourself faced with a claim that exceeds the limits of your current policy, the umbrella insurance will provide additional coverage beyond those limits.

Common Umbrella Insurance Myths

In today's world, umbrella insurance is no longer reserved for individuals with large assets. Anyone with a home or income can benefit from the added protection of an umbrella insurance policy.

For instance, what would happen if someone gets injured on your property and you are held responsible for compensation that exceeds the limits of your homeowner's insurance? How long would it take you to get back on your feet financially?

An umbrella insurance can give you extra peace of mind knowing that your personal and family assets are safe in event of a lawsuit.

Cost of an Umbrella Insurance

An umbrella insurance policy is a highly affordable option when compared to the amount of coverage that you get. The total cost of your policy depends on multiple factors, including:

  • The limit you choose for your policy
  • Your carrier’s provisions
  • Your risk profile and driving record

How Umbrella Insurance Protects You

For Florida families, a lawsuit that exceeds the upper limits of existing insurance plans can be devastating. An umbrella insurance policy can be an affordable way to add an extra layer of protection to your existing insurance plan.
