A Safety Net for Your Business
A Commercial Umbrella policy protects your business financially from damages that exceed your primary coverage. This policy is different than a Personal Umbrella policy, which will not cover your business, LLC, etc.
Commercial Umbrella Insurance is commonly written as an additional policy on top of conventional coverage such as General Liability and Business Auto. This type of insurance covers the amount of loss that exceeds the limit on the underlying policy but only up to the umbrella policy's limits.
Details About Commercial Umbrella Insurance
Business Insurance transfers the financial consequences of a covered incident to the insurance carrier. You should consider an Umbrella policy as, without it, a single claim against your business that exceeds your coverage may be disastrous. Here are a few essential details on Commercial Umbrella Insurance coverage:
Commercial Umbrella Insurance comes into play once the limits of your underlying coverages have been exhausted. Example: A covered incident results in a loss of $275,000, but the limit on your underlying policy (such as General Liability) is $100,000. Commercial Umbrella Insurance may cover the remaining $175K, otherwise, it would have to be paid for out-of-pocket.
It may cover the amount of loss that exceeds the limit on the underlying policy but only up to the Umbrella policy's limits. Certain limit requirements need to be met on your current policy before adding Commercial Umbrella Insurance.
The cost of an insurance policy depends on the type of business, its size, and the amount of the underlying coverage. However, it may be significantly lower than you might expect ad cheaper than paying out on a claim.
