Why do I need an umbrella policy

Living in Spokane, WA, you know the benefit of an umbrella when it rains. An umbrella insurance policy does for your assets what an umbrella does for your hair and clothes, it protects them. Western Insurance Associates has a knowledgeable staff to explain the benefits of an umbrella insurance policy and why everyone with any assets needs one.

You need an umbrella policy if you own a home or a car. An umbrella policy is additional liability coverage above and beyond what is provided by the liability portion of your home or auto insurance. Liability coverage may be something that you don’t think a lot about but it is important. It protects you against lawsuits that may be filed against you. If you are in an automobile accident or someone is hurt at your home you can be sued for damages and medical expenses. Owning a dog is also something that makes an umbrella policy a good idea. 

Not only would these types of events result in legal fees but it can also involve a judgment against you. Judgments can be very high and if they exceed the liability on your policy, you are responsible for the additional amount unless you have umbrella insurance. Typically umbrella insurance is between one and five million dollars. If you don’t have umbrella insurance, you could be forced to sell your assets and your wages could be garnished for years to come. A horrible prospect to consider. 

An umbrella policy can give you peace of mind. If you have assets, it is something that you really need to consider.
