commercial umbrella insurance

Of course, as a business owner you have insurance to cover a variety of scenarios and risks. But what about those situations where insurance doesn’t go quite far enough?

Sometimes a lawsuit or judgment might exceed the amount your business policy covers — and then you’d be stuck paying the difference out of your own pocket. That could affect your profits and your livelihood — or that of your employees.

But a commercial umbrella insurance policy can provide extra reassurance that your business will be protected if you face a liability that exceeds your normal policy limits.

Why Get Commercial Umbrella Insurance?

Commercial umbrella insurance is like having an extra safety net. Say someone enters your business premises and has a serious slip-and-fall accident that results in major injuries. Sure, your business policy covers slip-and-falls, but only up to the policy limit. 

A really serious accident might involve medical costs that exceed those limits. Think about what just one surgery or hospital stay can cost these days. If your insurance doesn’t cover it all, then what do you do? What if you don’t have the cash on hand to cover it? And then lawsuit papers hit your mailbox?

A commercial umbrella policy covers those amounts that your underlying business policy doesn’t — as long as the loss isn’t the result of an intentional act. So, purchasing a little extra insurance could save you tens of thousands of dollars, or more, in the event of a catastrophic accident.
