How Umbrella Insurance Works

Liability insurance is an important part of protecting yourself financially. There are liability coverage amounts in many different types of insurance policies. That includes both home and auto policies. However, you may not have the amount of coverage you need. Many people don’t have as much liability coverage as they thought. This can mean that their insurance can’t cover a major incident in which someone is injured. To get more of this coverage, there is umbrella insurance. If you’re interested in one of these policies, call us at White Oak Insurance LLC in Milford, CT.

Home, Auto, and Umbrella

Umbrella insurance is designed to work with your existing home and auto insurance policies. If you have both of these coverage types, there is some liability coverage in each of them. If you want to add more of this coverage onto your policies, however, it would be highly expensive. That’s why so many people turn to umbrella insurance instead. It’s a much less expensive way to get more liability coverage. It’s not only inexpensive, but it also comes with a very high maximum payout. When you don’t have much liability coverage, it may leave bills left over after the insurance company has paid what it can. This can leave enormous overages for you to pay. Umbrella insurance covers these overages so you won’t have to. 

Using Umbrella Insurance

When there’s been an accident with injuries. The medical bills first go to your home or auto insurance policy. Once it has maxed out what it can pay, umbrella insurance steps in. It pays the rest of the medical bills and other associated costs for you so you aren’t stuck paying out of pocket. Medical bills are going up all the time, so it’s smart to have this protection.
