Personal Umbrella Policy in Alabama
Liability insurance protects your assets in the event that you (or a member of your household) accidentally injure another person or damage someone’s property. It’s known as “third-party insurance,” because it protects you if a third party files a claim against you.
Liability insurance will pay for a legal defense in the event of a lawsuit, and pay medical and/or property claims for which you are found legally liable, up to the limits of the policy. Personal liability insurance can be purchased as part of a package policy (such as homeowners, renters, or auto insurance), or as a separate policy (such as a personal umbrella liability policy).
Personal umbrella liability insurance is designed to protect you against a catastrophic lawsuit or judgment. It provides expanded coverage and increases the amount of your liability protection beyond the basic coverage provided under your homeowners/renter auto insurance policies.
Unlike other types of liability coverage personal umbrella liability insurance can be purchased as a separate policy. However, your insurer will require that you have underlying basic liability coverage (homeowners/renters insurance, auto insurance, or both) before you can purchase an umbrella liability policy.
If you are found to be legally responsible for injuring someone or damaging someone’s property the umbrella policy will either pay the part of the claim in excess of the limits of your basic liability coverage or pay for certain losses not covered by your basic personal liability insurance. Naturally, no one expects to be sued. But a good personal liability policy can definitely help to protect both your family and your future.
