Umbrella insurance coverage triggers
When it comes to umbrella insurance, many business owners have a lot of questions. There can be some confusion about exactly what type of protection these policies offer, and when they are used.
Typically, an umbrella policy will come into play in the event that your primary policy is exhausted. This means that if you suffer from a lawsuit and the liability damages are greater than the amount that your primary policy provides, your umbrella policy would kick into action.
This type of policy provides excess liability protection and can help save the business and its principals from financial responsibility. When a primary policy is exhausted, the additional liability or damages will then become the responsibility of the firm. Depending on how the company is structured, this could mean that the principals themselves would be held personally responsible for any remaining financial damages.
Fortunately, this scenario of personal responsibility can be easily avoided! Now is a great time to get an umbrella policy in place for your company.
