Worldwide Excess Liability Insurance

When you should get extra protection.

Excess liability is critical insurance for families with significant personal assets who could easily face a claim that exceeds the liability protections provided by their other policies. Apart from providing higher coverage, specialized excess liability policies can cover more situations than those covered in homeowners or auto policies. Unfortunately there is no way to predict when a lawsuit may arise, but the opportunities are plentiful for well-to-do clients who can own multiple automobiles and boats, run several households, host and entertain many guests, and serve as board members.

We help plan for situations you can’t imagine.

Excess liability covers events that are often called “unthinkable” or “unimaginable” and for that reason clients who come to Lang Insurance have often not really analyzed their true liability needs or are unaware of the additional benefits offered by the top carriers with whom we work, such as international protection and more sophisticated resources in a crisis. We do a thorough needs analysis and set in place policies that offer the highest quality, worldwide protection, important for families that travel.

Make sure your insurance covers employment-related claims.

Many of the families we serve engage some combination of domestic staff, nannies, personal assistants, caretakers, drivers or gardeners and, like a corporation, can face employment-related litigation such as wrongful termination, discrimination or harassment. In addition to full-time staff, service providers such as contractors, landscapers or caterers constantly change employees and can bring numerous people to your property that might be injured.

Understanding the risks of board membership.

Furthermore, board members of corporations, foundations, non-profits, or coops and condos can be sued individually as part of a lawsuit against the board. We can help you understand how much you actually have at risk based on your activities and assets and suggest appropriate coverage for your family.

I had been very unhappy with the rising insurance costs on my East Hampton home. When I saw your ad in Dan’s Papers, I was skeptical that you could save me money on my current insurance policy. Well, you were able to save me 20% on my Homeowners and now I have turned over my other insurance to you. Your office staff has really been helpful and cooperative in getting me all the information I have needed.
