Five reasons why your business may need umbrella insurance
- You could go bankrupt without it — especially if your business is in a litigation-prone industry. One large jury award could quickly put you out of business, if it exceeds your policy limits.
- Your customers require it — if an accident occurs, they want to make sure your business has enough coverage to handle it.
- Your business is inherently dangerous — you manufacture hazardous materials or have a high risk of occupational injury to your employees.
- You have company vehicles or employees who drive their personal cars for business — which brings liability on every mile traveled.
- You have a physical presence — one slip, fall or other accident on company property is all it takes.
