Umbrella Insurance

Prepare for the Unexpected & Protect Your Family

In today's litigious society, jury awards and out-of-court settlements can be hundreds of thousands and even millions of dollars.  Then add legal fees to that bill and all that you have worked so hard to achieve could be gone.

An umbrella is an additional layer of liability coverage that can protect your home(s), auto(s) and other assets in the event of a third party lawsuit.  An umbrella responds to excess liability judgments for loss, injury or even death caused by your negligence.

Since umbrella insurance is a form of liability insurance, it does not cover your medical expenses or loss to your home, auto or property.

In most cases, umbrella insurance protects you from:

  • Injuries you cause in a car accident

  • Injuries someone suffers on your property

  • Property damage you cause in an accident

  • Property damage your pet causes

  • Property damage a dependent or child causes

  • Attorney fees and other legal costs if you’re sued


Since the terms of umbrella insurance policies vary, depending on the insurance company, and your own personal needs, please call and speak with one of our licensed representatives.
