Today, lawsuits are everywhere. Courts are awarding larger amounts of money in damages than ever. Homeowners, auto, and watercraft policies all come with limited liability insurance coverage. That is the portion of a homeowners, auto or boat policy that pays for expenses such as an injured persons medical bills, rehabilitative therapy, lost wages and compensation for pain and suffering due to the negligence of an at fault person. After adding up all of the medical expenses for the injured and the legal fees of the negligent person, the standard liability in one’s homeowners or auto policy is often not enough.
If an unfortunate accident should happen that is your fault, do you have enough liability insurance from your current policies to cover your costs for negligence? Since no one can predict how much a jury may award the injured person, umbrella insurance is not just for the wealthy anymore, but a needed protection for almost every policyholder.
A personal liability umbrella insurance policy can give you added liability protection without a large added cost. Umbrella policies are often the least expensive policies offered by an insurance company. Depending on how much umbrella liability coverage you decide to purchase, it could cost as little as $200 to $300 a year for 1 million dollars of coverage.
