In the context of business insurance, a Commercial Umbrella policy is designed to supplement existing insurance policies. This means Commercial Umbrella Insurance kicks in when the cost of a lawsuit exceeds the limits of certain liability insurance policies you already have.
To best benefit from having Commercial Umbrella Insurance, it’s good to know when it does and doesn’t help. As a rule, Commercial Umbrella Insurance can only supplement coverage for these policies: general liability insurance, auto liability insurance and employer’s liability insurance.
It increases the liability limit that your company already has in existing, or underlying, liability policies. For instance, if your general liability policy offers $1 million coverage per occurrence or $2 million total, you could get a $2 million umbrella policy and increase those limits to $3 million per occurrence and $4 million total.
It broadens coverage for things that your underlying policies may not cover. For instance, if your auto liability policy covers accidents that might occur in a specific area, an umbrella policy could expand the coverage territory.
