Excess & umbrella liability insurance provides additional coverage above the current limits of liability and runs concurrently with the existing commercial general liability policy. In addition, umbrella insurance would cover all primary liability policies listed on an insured certificate of insurance, such as commercial general liability, commercial auto, property, etc.
When contractors need to extend their insurance protection, umbrella insurance is an affordable solution. Maybe you’re working on a new project and the contact requires you to carry a higher general liability limit. Or perhaps you want to ensure that you’re covered against the possibility of a high-dollar incident or claim. Either way, umbrella insurance is an easy solution to help you get the most out of your contractor insurance protection.
Umbrella insurance can increase the coverage limits across multiple insurance policies for one affordable premium. Whether you need extra coverage or just want to be prepared against the possibility of a claim exceeding the underlying policy limit, umbrella insurance has you covered.
Umbrella insurance can extend the protection of your existing coverage, fortifying your protection against:
- General liability claims
- Commercial auto claims
- Employer’s liability (workers’ comp) claims
If a claim exceeds your underlying policy limit, you may be forced to pay the difference yourself. Could your construction business weather a $1M difference between a costly claim and your existing policy limit? With umbrella coverage, you don’t have to worry about a big incident depleting your business assets.
Umbrella insurance is sold in $1 million dollar increments, so you can extend the limits of your existing policies until you’re comfortable with your newly increased coverage. But the policy premiums for umbrella insurance are surprisingly affordable. Don’t leave the health and security of your business to chance; extend your contractor insurance coverage and fortify your defense with umbrella insurance.
