To really feel secure about protecting your assets and your future, you may need the extra level of protection provided by a personal umbrella liability insurance policy in Seattle, WA.
What’s Peace of Mind Worth to You?
An umbrella policy provides additional layers of liability protection. If the liability limits are exhausted on your home, auto, or other underlying insurance policy, your umbrella insurance policy takes over and provides you with additional protection.
The cost is minimal compared to the comfort of knowing you’re covered.
Do You Have Enough Liability Insurance?
Imagine what would happen if your dog was to bite a neighbor’s child, or if there was an accident on your rental property. What would happen if a fire in your condo spread to other units?
If any of these things happened to you, there’s a good chance your current liability limits wouldn’t be adequate to protect your assets, or your future earnings.
Liability Insurance Starts When the Others Stop
Once the liability limits are exhausted on your home, auto, or other policy, your umbrella policy takes over and provides a second layer of protection of at least $1,000,000. Higher limits may also be available.

Frequently Asked Questions about Personal Umbrella Insurance
Who needs a personal umbrella insurance policy?
Anyone who wants additional liability coverage for their home, auto, boat or rental insurance property should get an umbrella insurance policy. Umbrella insurance gives you above and beyond insurance protection.
What are the limits available for umbrella insurance?
Typically umbrella insurance policies are available in $1 million – $3 million. While uncommon, higher coverages can be found.
In what situation would an umbrella policy come in handy?
There are countless situations where umbrella insurance would come in handy. Here is one example:
You get into a car accident where you are at fault. Your insurance policy covers you for $500,000 in 3rd party damages. However, the other individuals in the car accident needed medical attention and future treatment for rehabilitation. On top of that, their car was totaled. The total damages for the other party are more than $650,000.
You are responsible for the remaining $150,000 that your $500,000 insurance policy did not cover. If you have an umbrella insurance policy, it would then kick in to cover this excess liability. If you do not have an umbrella policy, would you be able to foot the bill? If you cannot pay for the remaining balance, a court may issue your future wages to be garnished.
