Third Party Liability
With today’s current court awards, $1,000,000 Third Party Liability may not be adequate. We strongly recommend higher Third Party Liability Limits. Please contact our office for quotations on higher limits.
Umbrella Liability provides you with an extra layer of protection in addition to the Liability Coverage you have through your Home and Auto Insurance.With Claims Settlement Amounts increasing more than ever, your current limits of Liability may not be adequate. If an unfortunate accident should happen, do you have enough liability insurance from your current policies to cover your costs for negligence?
Since no one can predict how much will be awarded in a settlement, umbrella insurance is not just for the wealthy anymore, but a needed protection for every policyholder.The cost to add an Umbrella to your Home and Auto Insurance is usually between $180 and $300. Please call us for a quotation.

What do you drive when your vehicle is in the garage for collision or comprehensive and all peril type losses? A rental vehicle can be made available if you purchase Loss of Use coverage. Annual premium is generally only $20 to $30.

Some examples, but not limited, of a material change which would require you to notify your insurer would include:
Change in Use of the vehicle – Used for Taxi Purposes, Hospital Taxi
Carrying Passengers for Compensation
