How Does Umbrella Insurance Work?

When you have insurance policies on your house and vehicle, you may not have enough protection for all of your risks. With umbrella insurance, you get more coverage for a low price. If you are interested in umbrella insurance, you can find out more by calling us today at White Oak Insurance LLC in Milford, CT.

Liability Insurance

Your policies for your home and vehicle each come with some protection for liability in case of an accident. However, the amount of each is often too low to pay for a major accident. It’s a good idea to get more liability insurance than the amounts that come with these policies, but adding coverage to each of your policies can be expensive. Many people don’t want to pay much more for better liability coverage. That’s why getting umbrella insurance is becoming more common. It is a way to add to your liability coverage without those high premiums. 

Using Umbrella Insurance

When you have an umbrella policy, it pays for overages that you have after other policies have paid out. For instance, if you have an auto accident, your auto insurance would pay for the medical bills that come from it but only up to its maximum. If it was a severe accident, there might be a lot left over after the auto insurance has paid as much as possible. That policy would kick in and pay for those leftover medical bills if you had umbrella insurance. This is essential insurance for many who would not be able to afford a large amount of medical bills after an accident. 

Get an Umbrella Insurance Policy

There are umbrella policies if you want more liability coverage for your home and auto, but you don’t want to pay too much for it. If you are interested in getting a policy or want to find out more, call us now at White Oak Insurance LLC in Milford, CT.
