Commercial auto insurance is a specialized type of insurance coverage designed for vehicles used for business purposes. It is distinct from personal auto insurance and is intended to protect businesses from financial losses and liabilities related to accidents or other events involving their vehicles. This insurance provides coverage for a wide range of vehicles, including cars, trucks, vans, and specialty vehicles used during business operations.
Commercial auto insurance typically includes several key types of coverage:
Liability Coverage: This covers injuries and property damage to others caused by you or your employees while using a business vehicle.
Property Damage Coverage: It protects against an accident caused be you or your employees that damages someone else's property. This coverage will repair or replace the other person's property.
Collision Coverage: Optional coverage that pays for your vehicle damage resulting from collisions, regardless of fault.
Comprehensive Coverage: Optional coverage for non-collision events like fire, theft, vandalism, or natural disasters.
Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Coverage: Protects you from drivers who are uninsured or underinsured. This coverage allows you to sue those drivers at fault for any damages caused by an accident.
Medical Payments Coverage: Covers medical expenses for you and passengers in your vehicle.
Any business that uses vehicles for business purposes should consider commercial auto insurance. This includes small businesses, large corporations and everything in between. Common examples of businesses that need this insurance include delivery companies, contractors, service providers and any business that owns or operates a fleet vehicles.
