Personal Liability Coverage

A personal umbrella policy can protect you and your assets.

Personal umbrella protection provides liability coverage above your auto and homeowners insurance and adds additional coverages1. Coverage for any claim will be determined by the particular circumstances of the claim and the provisions, exclusions, conditions and limits of your policy.

Here's an example of how Umbrella Coverage works:
  • You own a Liberty Mutual Auto policy with $250,000 per person liability coverage and total of $500,000 per accident.
  • You also own a personal liability Umbrella policy with $1M coverage.

Let's say you or an insured driver on your policy is found liable for an auto accident with serious injury and is liable for $800,000 (one person injured).
  • Your auto insurance policy would cover the first $250,000
  • Your Umbrella policy pays the rest of $800,000-$250,000 = $550,000
  • Total coverage available is the auto policy coverage ($250,000) plus Umbrella ($1M) or a total of $1.25M.
Now, let's say you faced the liability above without the Umbrella coverage, but with home equity and savings above and beyond your auto liability coverage. A court could order you to personally pay the uninsured amount.2
