Especially when it comes to unexpected accidents or claims…
You never know when it might rain. So, just like the name implies, this type of policy acts like an umbrella, providing protection against a wide range of potential financial dangers and unforeseeable mishaps.
Umbrella insurance does not cover:
Most business insurance policies–whether they cover commercial liability or commercial property–have a payout limit. Normally, your business would be on the hook for any expenses above and beyond this limit. This type of unexpected cost is something that could threaten the very survival of your business.
Yes, your existing insurance may protect you to an extent, but an umbrella policy goes much further for less cost than upping the limits on your existing policy because it covers for different types of risks. Umbrella insurance is also portable, in most cases, so it can follow you when and wherever you travel.
