Personal Umbrella Liability 

Personal Umbrella Insurance - Call us 403-255-7781

We are in an age where multimillion dollar liability settlements are not uncommon. Every day people are sued for many reasons ranging from minor mishaps around the home to serious injuries resulting from catastrophic car accidents.  If you have assets to protect, it’s important they are adequately covered by your liability insurance policies for imposed legal judgments. This is where a personal umbrella policy can assist you.

What Can a Personal Umbrella Policy Do For Me?

Personal umbrella insurance provides the extra liability protection you need above and beyond your already established home and auto insurance policies.  A personal umbrella policy would protect you, and everything you have worked so hard for, against large legal judgments by providing liability limits above those provided by your home and automobile policies.   For example if an injury was sustained in your home and the claim was for $1,600,000, the homeowner’s policy would pay $1,000,000 and the umbrella would pay the $600,000.
 

Coverage Beyond The Everyday 

Legal Liability – Protection should you be sued for causing property damage or bodily injury.

Libel Coverage – Libel, slander, and defamation of character coverage.

Legal Expenses – Payment for legal expenses should a claim not be covered by your other insurance.

Income loss coverage – Payment for loss of income incurred while preparing your legal defense.

World wide coverage – wherever you go, you’ll always have your umbrella with you.
