What Is Commercial Auto Insurance?
A commercial auto insurance policy can help cover the costs (e.g., damaged property and/or medical expenses) of an auto accident that may be caused by you or another employee. Generally, commercial auto coverages include liability, collision, medical, comprehensive and uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage. There are additional coverages a business may need to add to their commercial auto insurance coverage. Our agency can help you review your business’s insurance needs and ensure you have the appropriate coverages.
What Does Commercial Auto Insurance Cover?
Commercial auto insurance comprises various coverages, including:
- Liability coverage may provide repair costs for the other person’s vehicle or property. It also can provide coverage for the legal fees associated with a lawsuit for personal injury.
- Comprehensive coverage can provide complete protection for damages unrelated to an accident, such as losses related to theft, floods, vandalism and fires.
- Collision coverage may cover vehicle repair costs if an insured vehicle collides with another vehicle or object. Collision insurance may also help replace a totaled vehicle.
- Medical payment may provide coverage for passengers and the driver when there is a need for medical care resulting from an accident.
- Uninsured motorist coverage provides bodily injury coverage if an uninsured driver hits a business’s vehicle and injures its driver and passengers. Some uninsured motorist coverage also covers damage to the company vehicle.
- Underinsured motorist coverage provides coverage if an underinsured driver hits a business’s vehicle and injures its driver and passengers. Some underinsured motorist coverage also covers damage to the company vehicle.
Policy endorsements may be available to your business to help round out your policy. Add-ons may include roadside assistance coverage, towing reimbursement, hired non-owned coverage, rental reimbursement and gap coverage for auto loans or leases.
