Victor’s Commercial Umbrella Liability coverage provides effective protection against large losses and potential coverage gaps for a range of exposures. The policy provides limits to supplement those of a Commercial General Liability (CGL) and Automobile policy, as well as additional liability coverages not contained in the CGL. The term “umbrella” is derived from the fact that it is a separate policy over and above any other basic liability policies.


  • Primary coverage is available to existing policyholders and also where we do not write the Commercial General Liability (CGL)
  • Coverage is also available on an excess basis over other insurers’ forms
  • Professional liability is not included
