Comment on indemnity and additional limits of coverage from article on February 19, 2024
          The other item to stress when considering amount of liability coverage to protect the company is fleet size.  A lot of companies have a large fleet size; $1 M of auto liability coverage could be used up quickly in a serious at fault vehicle accident. 
          As Crystal mentioned the Umbrella or Excess policy would/should sit above the General Liability, Professional Liability, Auto Liability and Employers Liability/Workers Comp coverage.   If you have some of these coverages split between different brokers or different carriers it isn’t automatic coverage so you would want to confirm these policies are all listed on the Umbrella policy schedule.

          Coordinating policies when written by different brokers is responsibility of the insured; that’s you.  Using one broker would make things easier.
          It’s actually interesting when you consider the adequacy of insurance limits on different policies.  It’s no secret that most alarm companies carry one million dollar limit for E&O [errors and omissions] insurance.  Compare this to auto insurance coverage. I imagine that most alarm companies, especially those with several trucks and vehicles on the road, carry more than one, and likely three to five or more million in coverage.  Personal injury, death and property damage can be difficult to predict from vehicle accidents.  But loss from alarm failure is just as unpredictable.  Claims for fire loss, personal injury or death are not uncommon against alarm companies for alarm failure.  [I am including monitoring and other services provided by alarm companies].
          You can’t get a contract that protects you for negligence while driving a vehicle.  You need insurance coverage just in case of an accident.  After all, no one plans to be negligent, so the insurance is for the unexpected. 
          You don’t plan loss because the alarm doesn’t work.  However you know that alarms fail, usually not because of anything you did or didn’t do.  The difference is, of course, that you have a contract that contracts away liability, even for your own negligence; you shift risks.  You can’t do that with your automobile. 
          If you don’t have a proper contract for your alarm business then you probably should carry insurance at levels of your auto policy.  [and keep all assets out of your name]
