Passenger accident coverage insures against medical expenses for guest passengers (who aren’t co-drivers) who are present in the event of an accident. Passenger accident also covers against fatalities and dismemberment. Exclusions and age limitations may apply to this coverage, depending on provider.
Physical damage is coverage you want included in your policy if you want to protect your own vehicle from loss or damage caused by things like accidents, fire, theft or vandalism. Tractors and trailers require separate coverage in the commercial trucking industry since trailers so often change hands, but if you insure both your tractor and trailer and they are involved in the same accident, you may only be required to pay 1 deductible for the claim.
Primary liability is the root coverage of any vehicular insurance policy and the core coverage required by the FMCSA in order to legally operate. It’s insurance that protects against loss from legal liability for bodily injury or property damage to another party involved in an accident or claim. The FMCSA requires a minimum of %750,000 in coverage, but in our experience most customers ask for a minimum of $1 million in order to satisfy common shipper
Commercial general liability insurance is core coverage for your business, insuring against legal liability for bodily injury or property damage another party might claim that occurs on your premises, or as a result of your products, services and other basic operations of your business. Small business trucking companies can save by bundling general liability with their vehicle or vehicles’ policies.
