Law/Patents - Insurance / insurance
English term or phrase: umbrella liability (excess liability)
From a contract (I only have one page, don't even know what the contract is really all about):

"At all times during the Term, and for a period of [ten(10)] years following termination of the Term, Buyer shall maintain the following types of insurance: General Liability, including contractual, products and completed operations $1,000,000 per occurrence; Auto Liability, including hired and non-owned auto $1,000,000 per occurrence; Workers Compensation – statutory, with Employers Liability of $1,000,000/$1,000,000/$1,000,000 per occurrence; *****Umbrella or Excess Liability***** $5,000,000 per occurrence."

Two questions:
1 - What is umbrella or excess liability?
2 - Does Auto Liability refer to vehicle liability? If not, what does it refer to?

wenns ein US Text ist, könnte es Kfz-Haftpflichtversicherung sein, also nicht Kfz-Versicherung, und das würde dann zu Obigem passen.

siehe Dietl.

Explanation:
