Why Would I Need a Commercial Umbrella Policy?

All owners should carry a general liability policy to protect their organization from lawsuits. But basic liability policies typically have low coverage limits.

For example, let’s say your current policy will pay claims up to $1 million in medical bills, damages, and legal fees if you’re found liable for an injury on your property. 

If the plaintiff in the lawsuit receives a $1.5 million reward, you must cover that $500,000 gap out-of-pocket. An expense like this will put many companies out of business. But with a commercial umbrella policy, you can avoid that vulnerability.

A commercial umbrella policy can add layers of protection if an incident costs more than the limits of your general liability insurance. There are several types to consider, based on the business you own:

  • Fire Legal Liability Insurance – This option covers you for liability if there is a fire in your owned or leased space.
  • Hired and Non-Owned Auto Liability – These types of coverage apply when someone in your company uses a vehicle that the business doesn’t own to conduct company business. For example, it protects you when you use a car that the business leases or when employees use their vehicles to do company work.
  • Liquor Liability – This coverage applies to injury claims when your business serves alcohol.
  • Employment, Directors, and Officers Liability Insurance – This plan is for employee lawsuits or to cover damages and legal fees incurred defending company directors and officers.
