Insurance is designed to protect your most important assets, such as your home, vehicle, boat, and other valuables. When purchasing your policies, don’t underestimate the coverage that umbrella insurance has to offer. Umbrella insurance provides extra liability protection to safeguard your assets against accidents at home or on the road. Here’s what an umbrella policy from The Insurance House in Tucson, AZ has to offer.
How Does Umbrella Insurance Work?
Umbrella insurance is additional liability insurance on top of your auto, home or renter’s liability coverage. In fact, you cannot purchase an umbrella policy unless you have other liability coverage already in place.
Liability insurance pays for injuries or damage to others in accidents that are your fault. Standard home, auto, boat or renter’s liability insurance has limits for the protection it provides. If you cause an accident where injuries or damage exceeds these limits, umbrella insurance will cover excess costs. Umbrella insurance kicks in where your other liability coverage leaves off, protecting your assets against financial loss.
Who Can Benefit from Umbrella Coverage?
If you’re wondering if umbrella insurance is for you, imagine the consequences of being sued for a mishap at home or on the road. A major lawsuit could deplete your savings or retirement funds or force you to sell your home in an effort to cover legal or settlement costs. Umbrella insurance protects these and other financial assets such as investment accounts or future income against unforeseen accidents that can lead to financial ruin. If you have substantial assets, you can greatly benefit from the protection that umbrella insurance has to offer.
