Commercial Umbrella/Excess Liability Insurance
Make sure your business is protected when claims exceed the limits of underlying insurance.
If you’re a business, large or small alike, with an existing general liability insurance policy but you’re concerned the coverage limit may not be sufficient, you should consider commercial umbrella insurance. Umbrella coverage extends beyond your general liability policy for an added layer of protection against legal claims that could be devastating to your business.
Sometimes referred to as excess liability coverage, commercial umbrella insurance kicks in if a claim is so large that it exceeds your general liability limits. If your business has lots of retail customer traffic or relies heavily on vehicles for deliveries or service calls, you may want to invest in an umbrella policy.
