Why would I need an umbrella policy?
No-Fault Reform Creates Options for Personal Injury Protection (PIP) beginning July 1, 2020
One of the most talked-about changes to No-Fault Auto laws in Michigan is the option to choose unlimited PIP or a lower PIP coverage limit. The choice you have to lower your PIP limit is intended to lower your insurance costs. However, these choices also create the possibility that your PIP coverage won’t be enough to cover your medical costs from an auto accident. What this means to you is that you’d need to sue the at-fault party to cover your unpaid medical expenses. (Assuming there’s an at-fault party to sue!)
We’ll Soon Be Seeing More Lawsuits and Higher Awarded Damages
If you injure someone in an auto accident who didn’t choose unlimited PIP coverage, they could sue you for their uncovered medical and related costs. The liability coverage on your auto policy would respond by providing you with legal protection and if necessary paying awarded damages. It’s time to take another look at how much liability coverage we have on our auto policies!
An Umbrella Policy Offers You the Best Protection in the Event of a Lawsuit
The Umbrella Policy is the ultimate “lawsuit protection policy”. It provides additional liability coverage over and above (hence the term “umbrella”) your home and auto policies.
How much will an umbrella policy cost you? On average you can get one million dollars of coverage for less than $15 a month. Dollar for dollar it is one of the least expensive policies you can buy. Plus many insurance companies will offer you multi-policy discounts when you purchase an umbrella policy that will lower what you pay for home and auto insurance.

Experiencing a major insurance claim or lawsuit could lead to personal financial loss if costs exceed coverage provided by your standard homeowners and auto policies.
With insurance laws changing in Michigan, umbrella policies are more necessary than ever. Up until July 1, 2020, every driver in Michigan has unlimited medical coverage on their auto policy. This coverage greatly reduces lawsuits for personal injury. However, after July 1, 2020, people will have an option to significantly reduce their medical coverage, which will greatly increase the personal injury lawsuits in the state of Michigan.
An umbrella policy is an extra liability policy that covers you over and above your personal auto, home and recreational vehicle insurance.
It’s very important to review your auto insurance policy with your independent agent prior to July 1, 2020.
