Commercial Umbrella

Do you need a flexible insurance policy for your business? You’ve come to the right page. Commercial umbrella insurance can cover what your existing insurance policies cannot. For example, if you have a general liability policy for your business, but it lacks coverage for to pay for someone’s medical expenses, commercial umbrella insurance can pay for those costs when a customer injures themselves on your property and requires medical treatment that costs more than what you’re covered for. Additionally, if your general liability policy has a coverage limit of $1 million, and your company is sued for $1.5 million, your umbrella policy has enough to cover you for the remainder. Please note that this is not a stand-alone policy; it must accompany an underlying policy, such as a general liability or commercial auto policy. A GPA Insurance agent can help you decide which coverages and policies are right for you.

 

Do I need commercial umbrella insurance?

Commercial umbrella insurance can be cost-effective for many businesses; however, a lot of businesses can operate just fine without one. Consider purchasing an umbrella policy if:

 

  • You have third-party liabilities, such as:

    • Your commercial property is open to the public and regularly visited, hence an increased risk of accidents.

    • Your employees drive their own vehicles for business uses. If an employee gets into a car accident, your business may be held responsible.

    • There is a high risk of injury on the job. Although a workers compensation policy can cover most medical costs, an employee could potentially sue your company for their injury.

  • Your clients/partners/projects have high coverage requirements. If your client feels more secure working with you with a higher amount of coverage than your existing policy has, an umbrella policy can help you cover the rest and land the job.

  • You want to sufficiently protect your business while saving money. This policy may be suitable for you if you just want to insure your business in an easy and cost-effective manner. An umbrella policy can supplement a broad range of policies, and increasing your coverage on multiple other policies can result in higher premiums.
