Why Personal Umbrella Insurance may be needed?
Consider your assets and their role in promoting financial security to answer that question effectively. Of course, when thinking about assets, the usual items come to mind: your car, house, investment accounts, and checking and savings accounts. However, your projected future income stream can be considered an asset in general. It could be the most valuable asset of all.
If you become the focus of a lawsuit for a large sum of money but do not have adequate insurance to cover the damages, you will have to pay the expenses out of pocket. This could result in severe financial hardship. However, umbrella coverage can protect you from financial disaster if you make an accidental mistake or have an unanticipated mishap.
