How Does Commercial Umbrella Insurance Work?

All businesses are required to have some sort of insurance. This insurance covers everyday risks of doing business. In the event of a lawsuit, the business may be forced to pay out damages to whoever, or whatever is damaged. Let’s say you have been sued for false advertising and required to pay back $1.5 Million to your customers. Your general business liability insurance will cover $1 Million as per your policy, but the remaining $500,000 is left for you to pay out of pocket. In order to protect yourself, and your business, Commercial Umbrella Insurance will step in and cover the remaining $500,000. This leaves you free to continue conducting business without worrying about being stuck in a bad financial state.

National Preparedness Month

Bergen County Preparedness Month | National Preparedness Month in NJ

Bergen County Preparedness | National Preparedness MonthNational Preparedness Month is here in Bergen County and across the nation.  As its name suggests  this month is a great month to think about the unexpected and how you can best prepare for a myriad of situations, from natural disasters to burst pipes and everything in between.  Much of this Bergen County preparedness involves planning and protection.  Your Bergen County insurance company can help you with planning and protection.

Where do you start when you think about preparedness.  A great place to start is with communication.  Last year’s theme for National Preparedness Month was “Don’t Wait, Communicate. Make Your Emergency Plan Today”.  This theme highlights the need to not only make a plan but to also communicate the plan.  This can be as small as communicating with your family or taking the communication into the workplace and your overall community.

Another important part of being prepared is being insured.  There is no time like the present to sit with your Lyndhurst NJ insurance agent to discuss your current coverage and where you may be lacking.  This includes homeowners insurance, auto insurance, and business insurance to name a few.

Of course the object of National Preparedness Month is to think about your plans for a number of potential incidents and threats.  This effort is backed by FEMA and certainly stresses the need to create a plan for the worse case scenario.  Knowing your main threats is a part of this.  For example, here in Bergen County we may not be facing the threat of wildfire as communities in the West do but we certainly face the potential of hurricane related damage.  Other potential catastrophes could include power outages, terrorist activity, blizzard conditions, and contaminated water.

Contact our team at Bogle Agency Insurance for help assessing your coverage and your planning.  We welcome the opportunity to serve as your guide to insurance in Bergen County NJ.  Let our knowledge and experience help you navigate National Preparedness Month in Lyndhurst NJ.
