Umbrella Liability Insurance works with your existing North Carolina home or auto insurance to give you an “umbrella” of coverage in the event you exceed your liability limits on your primary policy. This substantially raises your overall liability coverage beyond the basic coverage provided under your homeowners and auto insurance policies.
Imagine you are at fault in a car accident where your passenger is disabled for life. You walk away from the accident, but your passenger has a disabling injury. Who is financially responsible for providing the lifetime of care your passenger may require? If your passenger wins a judgment against you that exceeds your underlying liability limits; you may be required to pay with your current and future earning power and assets, possibly for the rest of your life. All North Carolina residents should be aware of this.
The #1 cause of personal liability claims on homeowner policies is dog bites.
With jury awards on the rise, the liability coverage provided by your auto, home and other personal liability policies may not provide enough protection.
The average jury verdict in the U.S. for injury cases is $985,675.
That’s why Umbrella Liability is so important. For surprisingly little, you can have an added umbrella of coverage linked to your existing auto and home policy that will help protect you and your family from being financially devastated by an unforeseen catastrophe.
With a Personal Umbrella policy, you can extend your auto, homeowners and other vehicle and watercraft liability insurance to better protect your assets in the event of a lawsuit.
