How Umbrella Insurance Works to Protect You and Your Family

Home insurance policies are there to protect you and your family financially.  When there is a disaster that affects a home or vehicle, the insurance helps with a quick recovery.  Unfortunately, accidents happen every day.  If you are found to be at fault for the car wreck or someone falls on your property due to your negligence, you’re responsible for their medical and legal expenses.  Insurance does its job to cover you but the policy will have caps as to what they will pay.  You are then responsible for any additional expenses that aren’t covered.  Umbrella insurance comes in effect during these situations. They cover the additional costs when your home or auto policy reaches its coverage limits.  The team at Alliance Insurance Partners works with residents in the Scottsdale, AZ area to ensure that they are adequately protected. 

Umbrella insurance policies are there when you most need financial and asset protection.  For instance, if someone does have an accident on your property due to your negligence, you’re responsible for their medical expenses.  If they decide to sue you, you may be responsible for their legal fees, as well.  If the costs are $500,000 but your homeowner’s policy only provides up to $250,000, the balance comes out of your pocket.  With an umbrella policy, though, the moment the homeowner’s policy maxes out, it goes into effect.  In some cases, it can provide up to an additional $1 million over the homeowner’s policy.  They also go into effect in cases involving libel/slander and invasion of privacy.
