Real-Life Scenario Involving Uninsured/Underinsured Motorists

A personal umbrella policy is always important, but be sure your umbrella covers you for Uninsured and Underinsured incidents! Some umbrellas DO NOT! Ask your agent!

  • INCIDENT:  Mrs. Smith was driving on a highway when she was rear ended by another driver, causing her to hit a light pole. The other driver did not have insurance and attempted to flee the scene but was apprehended. The insured sustained serious injuries totaling $510,000.

  • OUTCOME:  Mrs. Smith's primary insurance company paid out the full Uninsured Motorist limit of $250,000. Unfortunately, it still left Mrs. Smith with $260,000 in medical expense. Thankfully, Mrs. Smith had a personal umbrella policy with Excess Uninsured Motorist coverage, which paid the remaining expenses of $260,000.

Umbrella insurance acts just like an umbrella, sitting on top of your auto and homeowners policies to provide extra protection. An umbrella insurance policy will pick up where your home and auto insurance policies leave off. It is an extra layer of protection against lawsuits resulting from damage to someone else’s property or injuries as a result of an accident.
