Umbrella InsuranceGet a Quote
Umbrella insurance is a backup coverage that can help you pay for your legal defense or court-ordered settlements if the limits on your home insurance or car insurance are not enough. While many people assume they’ll never need more insurance, recent stats tell a different story. Right now, roughly 13% of personal injury settlements add up to $1 million or more. And yet, most home and auto liability coverages cap at $500,000.

Protect yourself today.
An umbrella insurance policy is not just for high-net-worth individuals. An injury that takes place on your property, or from an accident you’ve caused, may not be adequately covered by your standard homeowners or auto insurance policy. A claim from one of these occurrences can wipe out your savings and leave you and your family vulnerable. Discuss an umbrella policy with your C&S Insurance agent. A small investment today could protect your hard-earned investments in the future.
