At first glance this may seem like a lot of money but it only represents a portion of what is need to care for a seriously injured individual.In today’s insurance market it is getting more common to see “Umbrella” insurance policies. As people look to save on insurance rates they are combining there automobile and home owners insurance under one policy.
