Property Damage Liability
Risk Factor

You can be held responsible if you significantly damage another vehicle and/or property. Do you have enough coverage to protect yourself from the risk?


Your standard auto policy limit could easily be exhausted if you are found to be at fault. An umbrella or excess liability policy provides an extra layer of protection once your standard liability limits are exhausted. It’s a cost-effective way to ensure the peace of mind you deserve.

Bodily Injury Liability
Risk Factor

It’s easy to get distracted while driving. All it takes is an incoming text message, a fussy baby, or changing the radio station and your eyes are off the road long enough to crash into a pedestrian, bicycle, or another vehicle. As an owner/operator of the vehicle, you may be held financially responsible for any bodily injuries caused as a result of the accident.


An umbrella or excess liability policy helps extend your coverage to better protect you against these significant costs. It’s the ideal coverage to provide peace of mind, even when the unthinkable happens.

Risk Factor

You invite guests over for a pool party and one of your guests dives into the shallow end of the pool and is permanently injured. They hire a lawyer to represent them and after a long legal battle, you and your family are left financially responsible for their injuries. Do you have enough money in savings to cover your legal responsibilities as well as the legal defense costs?


An umbrella or excess liability policy increases your personal liability limits by adding protection over and above your current auto, boat, or homeowners policies - providing real financial value, as well as priceless peace of mind. Excess liability insurance is available either by an endorsement to your homeowners policy or available as separate coverage.

Watercraft Liability
Risk Factor

Accidents can happen to anyone at any time, even those who have been out on the water for years. Personal watercraft insurance is a necessity, but sometimes the limit these policies provide isn't enough.


Your standard watercraft policy limit could easily be exhausted if you are found to be at fault for property damage or personal injury. An umbrella or excess liability policy can extend those limits, providing you an additional layer of financial protection.

Umbrella insurance provides additional coverage and protection, with a focus on liability protection.

You are a responsible person, but accidents can occur. Whether it’s a car accident or even an accusation of libel or slander, if you’re deemed responsible, you’ll have to pay. And unfortunately, many home and auto policies have liability claim limits, meaning you’ll be responsible for paying the difference yourself. That’s where umbrella insurance comes in: If there’s an incident in your home or while you are driving and you are responsible for paying someone else’s costs, umbrella insurance can help covers your costs so you aren’t responsible for hefty bills not covered in your standard home and auto policies.

Umbrella Insurance Frequently Asked Questions

Check out these FAQs to learn more about umbrella insurance and if you need it. Don’t hesitate to reach out if you have further questions.

What does umbrella insurance cover?

This type of coverage is specifically about liability, which is the cost you might have to pay to somebody else for an unfortunate event for which you are held responsible. It doesn’t usually include losses you bear yourself, such as if your property is damaged or your possessions are stolen.

Do I need umbrella insurance?

It’s a good idea to consider. You’d usually get umbrella insurance when your main insurance policy has liability coverage limits that are too low for your needs.

How does umbrella insurance work?

Your umbrella insurance policy will only pay out when your main policy has already been paid out in full, and it will only pay out the remainder of your costs. For example, if your auto policy covers liability up to $500,000 but you cause an accident that leaves the other driver with medical bills of $600,000, your main policy will pay out in full, and the umbrella policy will kick in for the remaining $100,000.

How can you increase your personal liability limits?

Umbrella insurance allows you to get more coverage if a claim goes over your auto, home, or watercraft policy’s limits, which you’d have to pay for out-of-pocket otherwise.

Who does an umbrella insurance policy cover?

If you have umbrella insurance, it may cover members of your family or household. Be sure to understand who is covered by your specific policy when looking for coverage for your unique situation.

Is umbrella insurance expensive?

Coverage might be more affordable than you might think. While it covers large potential payouts, the premium usually reflects the reduced risk that the policy will need to pay out.
