A quick overview of commercial auto insurance coverage options
This type of insurance is also referred to as commercial car insurance, truck insurance, or fleet insurance. The Walker & Solomon team is happy to discuss your options based on your business needs.
Bodily injury liability coverage
This type of coverage is effective should there be an accident that results in bodily injury or death for which a company representative is at fault, and it provides for a legal defense.
Property damage liability coverage
If a company representative is found to be at fault in accident that damages property, this type of coverage provides protection and also provides for a legal defense.
Medical payments, no-fault, or personal injury coverage
These options typically pay for medical expenses (up to a specified dollar limit) for the vehicle\’s driver and passengers involved in an automobile accident no matter who is at fault.
Comprehensive physical damage coverage
This insurance option offers protection from theft, vandalism, flood, fire, and other covered perils.
Uninsured motorist coverage
This coverage pays for injuries and, in some circumstances, certain property damage caused by an uninsured or a hit-and-run driver. In some cases, such as if the driver at-fault has insufficient insurance, underinsured motorist coverage can also be included.
If the commercial vehicle hits or is hit by another object, this type of coverage pays for damages.
