What is Excess Liability Insurance?

Excess Liability, sometimes known as an Umbrella policy, will respond when the underlying liability limits of your other policies, like homeowners or auto, have been exhausted. For example, if you were injured in a car accident and needed expensive surgery, you would be on the hook to pay for any costs beyond what the at-fault driver's Liability limits would cover. This is where Excess Liability coverage would kick in to help cover those unexpected costs.

What are the types of Excess Liability Insurance?

Ultimately, there are two types of excess liability insurance; an essential difference is between excess liability insurance and umbrella liability insurance.

Excess liability insurance pays for claims over existing policy limits based on the underlying scope of coverage only or what is often referred to as a follow-form basis. Separately, umbrella liability insurance serves three purposes:

  • It provides surplus limits when the payment depletes the limits of underlying liability policies of claims.
  • When the aggregate amount of the underlying policy is exhausted by claim payments, it falls and picks up where the underlying policy leaves off.
  • It covers some claims not covered by the underlying policies, subject to the named insured's assumption of a self-insured retention (SIR).

What makes Excess Liability Insurance important?

Excess Liability Insurance is important because it can increase your coverage for

  • The lawsuit and legal fees associated with your company
  • Cases involving property damage and personal injuries, such as slips and falls
  • Extra coverage for your Commercial Auto insurance policy

And other excess liabilities on top of your primary policy.

Already have Excess Liability Insurance? Switching is easy

It might be time to switch insurers whenever the service that your existing insurer provides doesn’t meet your needs. For example, if you have a poor claims experience or an unexplained rate increase, it might be time to consider other options

If you cancel a previous policy before a new policy is effective, you could run into some serious financial problems.
