Many businesses and people are unsure what an umbrella policy is or what it covers. Partners Risk Services is here to help. We will explain the basics of Umbrella Insurance and the benefits to you and your business. When you are outside and there is a light rain or breeze you generally don’t need or want an umbrella. However, if it is pouring down rain with high winds, you take your umbrella. An Umbrella Insurance policy works much the same way.

Umbrella Insurance for businesses and residents provides extra protection or limits above the liability insurance you currently have. Just as an umbrella protects you from heavy rain, an Umbrella Insurance policy protects you from losing the entirety of your wealth and assets in the event of a claim. Umbrella Insurance can provide limits above your business, personal auto and home policies.

Here is an example: John Doe falls asleep while driving and hits a van with a family inside. The accident results in $600,000 of medical bills, but John Doe’s auto policy has a $500,000 limit. Fortunately, John Doe also has a $500,000 umbrella policy, and the additional $100,000 would be covered under the Umbrella.

It is true that Umbrella Insurance may not be for everyone, but if you are building financial resources for your future, are a professional, own your home, boat, own a business or recreation vehicle, you should consider an Umbrella Insurance policy Partners Risk Services Insurance offers Umbrella Insurance in the state of Georgia with very competitive rates. Having the added protection of an Umbrella Insurance policy is coverage no one should go without.
