Personal Umbrella Insurance | Bogle Agency Insurance NJ
Despite your efforts to find the best possible liability insurance protection, you might still feel too exposed in today’s litigious NJ society. It’s certainly a concern to keep in mind as you explore your options. One such option, however, is an umbrella insurance policy from Bogle Agency Insurance, based in Bergen County, available to all NJ residents.
What is Personal Umbrella Insurance?
Much like an actual umbrella, your umbrella liability coverage protects you from various liability issues that may come your way, including liability judgments that exceed the scope of your standard liability coverages and protections. Or for some events that are typically excluded from general liability policies.
Why Buy an NJ Umbrella Policy?
It’s hard to overlook the increasingly litigious nature of the world where we live and work today. People sue for various slights and injuries, both actual and perceived. The costs of litigation are punitive in their own rights. Umbrella coverage helps to cover the costs of your legal defense as well as any payments awarded – especially when those awards exceed the limits of your base liability coverages.
Why is this additional coverage so important? Without it, your personal assets could be at risk and to cover the damages awarded to the other party in an accident or in the aftermath of an injury that occurred in your home or on your property.
In a lengthy courtroom battle, it’s conceivable that the legal fees alone may exceed the scope of your general liability coverage. That means your family is on the hook for the full force of damages levied against you. These are events you don’t want to lose sleep over, especially when a small investment in umbrella coverage can spare you the lost sleep and your family the heartache of such an experience.
Who Needs Umbrella Insurance Coverage?
In the state of New Jersey, almost everyone can benefit from Umbrella coverage. Whether you own or rent your home, it does not matter. You never know what life is going to throw your way. If you own any of the following, you need umbrella coverage:
• Secondary/Seasonal Homes
• Recreational Vehicles (RVs)
• Personal Watercraft
• Antique Automobiles/Hot Rods
The state of New Jersey offers many opportunities for residents to play hard, and sometimes people get hurt. If someone is injured on your property or by property you own, you need the blanket protection an umbrella policy provides.
It’s not only about the financial benefits umbrella insurance provides but the peace of mind it delivers. Chances are you carry an umbrella in your car on sunny days because you never know when a storm might pop up. Your umbrella insurance policy offers the same kind of protection for unexpected legal storms that can ruin your financial outlook without that little bit of umbrella protection on your side.
