What is Commercial Umbrella Insurance?
When you have a claim that exceeds the limits of your current policy, umbrella insurance provides extra coverage to protect your business and assets from financial risk. At PeoplesAlly, umbrella insurance is available with existing liability policies.
Keep in mind that umbrella insurance can only be applied to a claim if two things happen:
1. You already have the appropriate underlying policy.
For example, if you have general liability with an umbrella policy but you don't have commercial auto insurance, then your umbrella policy only covers those items covered by general liability.
2. The limits of that policy have been reached.
An umbrella policy helps cover costs associated with:
Bodily injury and related medical expenses
Customer property damage
Libel, slander, and copyright infringement
Defending against a lawsuit
Why Do I Need Commercial Umbrella Insurance?
While not generally required, an umbrella policy gives you even more peace of mind. Just as an umbrella protects you from the rain, a small business umbrella insurance policy protects you from expensive claims that fall outside the coverage limits of your other small business insurance policies. Plus, adding umbrella insurance may cost less than increasing the limits of your general liability or commercial auto insurance.
Advantages of Having Commercial Umbrella Insurance
At PeoplesAlly, we've ditched the traditional insurance model in favor of selling our products directly to you online or over the phone. And that means we make it easy to get the umbrella policy you need to pay for damages above and beyond the amounts covered by your existing policies. It's faster, more convenient, saves you up to 20% compared to other companies.
What Does Commercial Umbrella Insurance Usually Cost?
On average, the first $1 million of umbrella insurance will cost your small business between $200 and $400 per year. At PeoplesAlly, our small business customers have access to low down payments through our online system. Submitting claims can also be done entirely online—no more waiting days or weeks for a claim to go through.
