A Business Umbrella Insurance policy protects you in a claim when your general business liability limits are exhausted, and you are faced with a lawsuit and potentially millions of dollars in liability exposure.
A million dollars can add up easily, particularly if the injured person suffers injuries that keep him or her from working for weeks, months, or years. The victim of an accident could sue you for medical bills, lost income, even pain and suffering, not to mention damage to their vehicle, and cost for an attorney. Depending on the extent of the damage and injury, after your business general liability limits are exhausted, you are responsible for paying the rest, if you are at fault in an accident, and that could mean financial disaster.
Britannia Insurance Group can provide the Business Umbrella Insurance to Protect You and Your Business.
We can provide $1 million or more of Business Umbrella Insurance protection on top of your business general liability and business auto liability coverages–and it is not that expensive. You can usually buy a business umbrella insurance policy with $1 million limits for $150 to $300 a year. If you need more than $1 million limits, you can buy each extra $1 million of coverage for $100 to $150.

Do I need an insurance agent now that I can do it myself using the internet?
Living in the technology age has changed the way we all live our lives. Industries are being created and others are being rendered a thing of the past, Insurance is involved in all of those changes while it undergoes changes of its own. Insurance is a contract between a company who guarantees compensation for specified loss, damage, illness or death in return for payment of a premium. Some insurance policies are mandatory like car insurance while other types are voluntary like life insurance. To navigate through the choices and decisions involved you can choose to do-it-yourself or hire the services of a professional. I am all for taking on certain D-I-Y projects like cutting your own grass or hanging ceiling fans but hiring a professional insurance agent is one choice I highly recommend.
Why should I hire an Independent Insurance Agent?
Once you decide to hire a professional insurance agent, the next decision is whether to go with a Captive agent or an Independent one. Captive agents represent one insurance company and all the products that they offer. The Independent agent represents multiple insurance carriers and can shop around with those carriers as they compete with each other for clients. There are great insurance agents in both categories and choosing one is a personal preference. The biggest difference is when the policy has been in place for a couple of renewals and the premium starts increasing. An independent agent can shop around for you with other carriers if your rates start increasing by too much and the relationship can remain in place. Captive agents do not control rate changes that happen from their companies and so do not have this option. Building strong relationships with our clients is what sets Britannia Insurance Group apart from our competition.
