Many companies utilize work trucks to provide their employees with the transportation needed to complete jobs. One of the biggest challenges is finding quality insurance that will keep the company covered in the event of a collision that leads to property damage or personal injury. Rather than just hoping a company is covered, it is important to consider the following items, as they should be included in any commercial vehicle insurance policy. Ask an agent about these policy specifics to ensure a company will be covered if tragedy strikes.
If an employee has a wreck and that collision causes another person to be injured, the company can be found liable for the injury and forced to pay for the cost of medical care and even provide them with restitution for loss of income. An insurance policy that provides liability coverage will provide financial support for any damage that may relate from an accident and provide a company with peace of mind.
While the specific requirements of an insurance company will differ slightly, nearly all require an employee rider to provide coverage for representatives of the company when they are driving a company vehicle. Be sure to incorporate any requirements, such as a DMV checks or drug testing that may be part of the insurance policy to prevent unauthorized use and the chance of a policy not covering an accident.
Many companies use their work vehicles to haul equipment to and from job sites. Find a policy that offers coverage on these items in the event of theft or damage due to an accident. This will prevent a company from having to incur the expense associated with lost equipment, and provide financial support to help replace any items that may be damaged.
With the right insurance, any company can keep their fleet legal and provide peace of mind in the event of an accident.
