You work hard for the things that are important to you. For added coverage above and beyond the liability limits of your Auto or Home insurance policies, a Personal Umbrella insurance policy can provide added protection for your assets and future earnings. As an Umbrella insurance policy is there to protect you if you are sued for damages above your primary liability limits.
For example, a witness in your auto accident says you ran a red light and T-boned another car. You have no credible witness to defend your side of the story and the passenger that was injured in the other vehicle sues you for $850,000 for his medical cost as well as pain and suffering. You only have $250,000 per person liability coverage on your underlying insurance policy. In this situation, an umbrella insurance policy can help with these extra costs as well as legal fees. Instead of just having your normal auto insurance coverage, umbrella insurance gives you the additional coverage you may need.
As a rule of thumb, to figure out whether you need an umbrella policy, is when the value of your assets is greater than your current liability limits on either of your homeowner’s insurance policy as well as your auto insurance policy. If you haven’t already, check out the Trevin Webb Liability Exposure “Snapshot” worksheet to help determine if you are under insured (click below on Liability Exposure Snapshot). Also remember that you don’t have to be a millionaire to be sued like one. When it comes to assets such as retirement, monthly income, home equity, vehicles, or personal property these are easy for the courts to get access to in the event of a tragic liability claim against you.
Note: If you have the Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist (UM/UIM) endorsement (Note; not all Umbrella Insurance companies offer this) and if you get hit by an uninsured or underinsured motorist (UM/UIM) your uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage on your umbrella can help with more coverage over and above your underlying uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage for your injuries. As an example 1 out of 5 drivers are uninsured in Oregon. UM/UIM coverage can help pay for your injuries from an accident caused by the owner or operator of an uninsured or underinsured vehicle. Excess UM/UIM from a personal umbrella policy pays after the auto polic’s UM/UIM limits have been exhausted. Contact your insurance representative at the Trevin Webb Insurance agency to see if this is an option for your Umbrella policy.
