Bodily injury coverage

Risk Factors

An elderly customer is injured after tripping on frayed carpeting while visiting your business. Her medical costs are substantial — and exceed the limits of your liability policy.


An umbrella policy can help when the costs of a claim surpass the limit of your underlying liability policy.

Commercial auto coverage

Risk Factors

Your employee causes a multi-vehicle accident while driving a company car to a business appointment. The combined medical and repair costs are higher than the limits of your commercial auto policy.


An umbrella policy can help with liabilities that exceed the limits of your underlying commercial auto policy.

Personal/Advertising Injury coverage

Risk Factors

When a reputation has been damaged, umbrella insurance can help decrease the legal blow.


It can cover personal injuries like Libel & Slander, Malicious prosecution, wrongful eviction, and advertising injuries like copyright infringement or misappropriation of advertising ideas.

Contractual Liability coverage

Risk Factors

The companies frequently assume a landlord’s tort liability when renting office space.


This aspect only regards “insured contracts,” such as leases and easements. Commercial umbrella insurance can help you cover legal expenses arising when you accept the tort liability of another responsible party.

Lawsuits coverage

Risk Factors

Legal and defense fees can skyrocket in a heartbeat, and you may need to pay them from your pockets.


Umbrella insurance can help cover these particular expenses when you are in the middle of a lawsuit.

What is Commercial Umbrella insurance?

Commercial umbrella insurance gives you extra coverage to help pay for costs that exceed certain liability policy limits. Without this type of commercial insurance coverage, you’d have to pay out of pocket for liability claims that cost more than your coverage limits

This can include:

  • Legal costs
  • Medical bills
  • Damage to other people’s property
  • Judgments and settlements

A commercial umbrella policy extends the limits of some of your primary liability insurance policies, such as general liability insurance and commercial auto insurance.

For example, if your company is found liable for a customer’s injury at your place of business and you are sued for $1.5 million but only have $1 million in liability coverage, a commercial umbrella policy could make up for the $500,000 shortfall, subject to the policy’s coverage limits. 

Commercial Umbrella insurance can supplement the liabilities of

  • General liability insurance
  • Employer’s liability insurance(often included in workers’ compensation)
  • Hired and non-owned auto insurance

Before purchasing umbrella liability insurance for any of these policies, an insurer will require you to carry at least $1 million in coverage on the underlying policy.

Umbrella liability insurance cannot be added to professional liability insurance that covers lawsuits over professional mistakes, including undelivered services and missed deadlines.

The Importance of Commercial Umbrella insurance

Commercial umbrella insurance offers an additional layer of liability defense by taking care of costs that exceed the limits of your other liability insurance. In other terms, commercial umbrella insurance acts as a supplement to your other liability coverages by stepping in when those coverages' limits are reached.
