We recommend everyone consider a personal umbrella insurance policy. If you engage in a high-risk activity or a hobby that increases your odds of being sued — such as having a teenage driver, owning a swimming pool, or frequent entertaining — it is wise to supplement your insurance coverage with an umbrella policy.

Standard personal liability insurance limits may not be sufficient in certain cases. Large claim judgments are becoming more commonplace. According to a recent survey by Martindale-Nolo, 16% of personal injury settlements are over $75,000. Personal umbrella insurance protects against liability that extends beyond the limits of your underlying homeowners, auto, boat, or other policies. Personal umbrella insurance is inexpensive and easy to quote.
One of the largest claims seen by our agency was for an automobile accident. The injured party required lifetime healthcare and was no longer able to work, resulting in a $2,500,000 judgment.
Homeowners includes personal liability insurance, protecting you for exposures at home and elsewhere. For example, if someone visits your home and leans on a railing which gives way, your homeowners policy would protect you. Most limits are $100,000 or $300,000, but personal umbrella liability increases those limits in $1,000,000 increments.
Think the above example would never happen? It did to our client when sued by a plumber they had hired to work on their home. A trim carpenter was fixing the stair railing at the same time and clearly not operational. The plumber leaned against the railing, fell, and sought recovery of hospital bills and lost wages from the homeowner.
Personal umbrella liability insurance goes over your auto insurance policy and provides an extra layer of protection. Just like homeowners, auto insurance policies provide only a limited amount of coverage. Once the policy limit is reached, an injured party can seek compensation from your assets such as home, auto, investments, and wage garnishment.
Homeowners policies have strict limitations on liability associated with boats and ATVs. Yet we think nothing of stepping into a vessel with a churning propeller and dragging a tube full of kids around a lake full of other people doing the same thing. Be sure to review our boat insurance page. And when you apply for personal umbrella liability insurance, tell your agent about any boat, personal watercraft, or ATV policies you have so the umbrella policy will be written to extend over them.
