If you’re a business owner without assets you want to protect, umbrella insurance may be a good investment. Many business owners would be unprepared to replace, repair, or pay for some business loss out of pocket. As a result, umbrella insurance can be the backup that many business owners benefit from. Our Commerce, GA team at Hyman Brown Insurance Agency Inc. takes pride in helping Georgia business owners get the necessary coverage.
What is Umbrella Insurance?
Umbrella insurance is simply a backup or secondary insurance policy. Business owners need to have a primary insurance policy before an umbrella insurance policy can be purchased. Umbrella insurance is designed to provide coverage for anything that extends beyond the limits of the primary insurance policy. However, if your primary insurance policy does not cover something, umbrella insurance will likely cover it too.
I’m a Small business Owner with no Employees. Do I need Umbrella Insurance?
Suppose you have significant assets that you’re interested in protecting and feel that the limits of your primary insurance could be exceeded or maxed out. In that case, umbrella insurance may be a good investment, even for a small business. Umbrella insurance will provide coverage if any incident exceeds the limits of your primary insurance policy. However, umbrella insurance isn’t a required form of coverage. It’s optional. Business owners with considerable assets and concerns may benefit from an umbrella insurance policy.
