Everyone needs an umbrella. It protects your income and assets. If you’re held liable for an accident your policy may have limits as low as $10,000. The jury award could be $1,000,000 or more. Who pays the difference? Your home, property, investments, and wages can be seized and garnished.

The Insured hosted a party at his home. Among the guests was the Claimant, a family friend who was also the Insured’s financial advisor. The Claimant brought his wife, infant, and 2 year old child to the party. The Insured gave the Claimant a jug of spring water for him to use to mix formula for the infant. The 2 year old child also had a drink. Shortly thereafter, the children became ill. The family left the party, and then took the children to the hospital. The hospital requested the water jug which was found to contain arsenic. An old label was found wrapped around the handle with the word “weed killer” printed on it. The Insured had apparently mixed a solution of weed killer in a jug similar to the ones used for spring water and mistakenly given it to the Claimant. The infant died and the 2 year child survived after being in critical condition. The Personal Umbrella policy limits were paid out.
