Actual Claims for the Personal Umbrella

 

#1:   The insured permitted several of her children and their friends to play paintball in her large back yard. The children were experienced and advised of all the safety rules including the use of headgear at all times. A participant removed her headgear as she was leaving the field in order to better hear someone calling her name. The minor claimant was hit in the eye resulting in a $475,000 settlement.

 

# 2:  The insured hosted a beach party for their daughter. One of the attendees found what was believed to be an empty and discarded propane tank. The tank was thrown into a beach bonfire and subsequently exploded resulting in severe injuries to several guests. A $20,000,000 claim was filed alleging the insured failed to properly supervise the party.

 

# 3:  A couple hosted a party for their teenage children. They did not provide any alcohol, but it was brought by some of the guests and was available. After leaving the party, one of the guests was severely injured in an auto accident, and the injury was attributed to his consumption of alcohol. This case went to the Wisconsin Supreme Court which decided that anyone who sells or furnishes alcohol to a minor is responsible for the minor's injuries as well as any injuries caused by the minor. The opinion of the court was that the homeowners should have prevented the consumption of alcohol by minors on their premises. Both the homeowners and personal umbrella policies responded to this claim

Prepare Your Home for Winter Weather

Erie Insurance recommends homeowners take the following precautions to help protect your home against winter weather:

 

  • Maintain your gutters- Remove leaves and other debris from gutters so melting snow and ice can flow freely.
  • Trim trees and remove dead branches- Ice, snow and wind can cause weak trees or branches to break, damaging your home, car or injuring someone walking on your property.
  • Add insulation- Add extra insulation to attics, basements and crawl spaces. Ideally, the attic should be five to ten degrees warmer than the outside air. Well-insulated basements and crawl spaces can help protect the pipes from freezing.
  • Maintain pipes- Wrap pipes with heating tape. Insulate any unfinished rooms or garages with exposed pipes. Check for cracks and leaks. Have any minor pipe damage fixed immediately.
  • Keep your house warm- Keep the temperature in your house at least 65 degrees. The temperature inside the walls where the pipes are located is substantially colder than the walls themselves. If the temperature is lower than 65 degrees it will not keep the pipes from freezing.
  • Check heating systems- The proper use and maintenance of furnaces, fireplaces and wood-burning stoves can prevent fire and smoke damage. Have furnaces, boilers and chimneys serviced at least once a year before the heating season begins. Make sure that all of the smoke alarms are carbon dioxide detectors are working properly.
  • Maintain steps and handrails- Broken stairs and banisters can become lethal when covered with snow and ice. Make repairs now to prevent someone from falling and seriously being injured.

This is also a good time of year to review your homeowners policy. Talk to your agent about any major improvements or additions you have made to the home to keep all of your information accurate and up to date.

Testimonials

ALWAYS the best customer service, I have been with Summit for years and no one--I mean no one--is better than Fiona and the Summit team with handling all your insurance needs. They go above and beyond.
Brian Terrell
I went over everything with my husband and he wanted me to thank all of you there for such great communication and care getting us set up. Our frustration with XXXX (carrier named) had reached somewhat of a volatile state. We look forward to a great relationship with Summit and all concerned. Have a great rest of your week.
Carolyn, Office Manager KCG Solutions
I've had Erie for a fair amount of time; however, I don't stay because of their policy offerings or pricing, I much like my parents whom have been with Erie for 25 or 30 years, stay because people like you are always ready to jump in and get things done. No matter the outcome, I very much appreciate your continuous effort.

Five Star Professional
April , Thank you so much for your help these past two weeks. Getting the Mustangs onto a collector car type of policy like Hagerty offers has been on my to-do list for a number of years. Fortunately I haven't had to make a claim in that time...but unfortunately I've been missing out on the savings. Nevertheless as soon as I mentioned the idea to you and you told me you underwrite for Hagerty I was very interested in pursuing it. You made the transition seamless and provided significant savings while improving the coverage on my beloved Mustangs. I very much appreciate your assistance!!
Troy R.
Quick note to say thanks for your assistance on dealing with my recent car repair – the adjuster – all that. You were very helpful, responsive and couldn't have done it without you. Thanks so much!
