Insurance101: What Is Umbrella Insurance? 

Getting Commercial Office Insurance Shouldn’t be Complicated!

Whether you rent or own your office space in Canada, getting office insurance is important. Office insurance provides financial coverage for physical loss or damage to your property including valuable papers. 

Insurance 101: What is Umbrella Insurance?

What happens if your business is held liable for judgment amounts that exceed the liability coverage limits of your insurance policy, or multiple claims have been made against your business? Not having the needed coverage for lawsuits can leave you and your business exposed. Umbrella insurance can help mitigate these risks.

Commercial umbrella insurance provides an added layer of liability protection for you and your business. The policy covers costs that go beyond your other liability coverage limits. In other words, commercial umbrella insurance works as a backup for your other liability coverages by taking over when your other liability coverage limits have been exhausted.

Key Benefits of Commercial Umbrella Insurance

1. An affordable second source of protection for your business beyond your primary insurance

2. Provides higher limits of liability for automobile, general liability, and employers liability

3. Can cover exposure gaps by kicking in where your primary insurance ends

4. Not just for large companies; limits up to $25 million may be available for all small business types

Who Should Purchase Commercial Umbrella Insurance?
The simple answer is anyone who’s risk may surpass their standard policy limits. Usually, the more your business interacts with clients and customers, the higher your liability risk will be. As your business grows your need for umbrella insurance increases.

Business umbrella insurance can be helpful if your business:

1. Frequently interacts with customers

2. Works on someone else’s property

3. Is open for the public to visit

4. Is operating in an industry with high risks/exposures
