Umbrella Insurance in Nevada
Have you ever wondered what would happen if a liability claim exceeded your auto, home, or boat insurance? Regrettably, any uncovered liability claim by your insurance remains your responsibility. As such, when your current liability coverages fall short, your assets will be at stake. However, the good news is that you can boost your typical liability insurance with umbrella insurance from Red Rock Insurance of Las Vegas, NV.
What is umbrella insurance?
Umbrella insurance is the extra liability protection that saves the day when your auto, boat, or home insurance runs out. Suppose you cause a significant car accident resulting in severe injuries to the other driver. Now, let’s assume your liability coverage is $100,000, but the medical costs accumulate to $150,000.
You may have to cough out the uncovered $50,000 medical expenses from your pocket without umbrella insurance. Worse yet, if the victim sues you for damages, you could be facing significant liability claims that could put you in a financial mess.
Simply put, umbrella insurance is like putting on a helmet when riding a bike. You may think you don’t need it, but you will thank the insurance gods you had it when an accident happens.
