COMMERCIAL TRUCK LIABILITY

Commercial Truck Liability insurance is required by State and often Federal regulations. Every carrier must carry liability insurance on every rig even on leased units (Autos). Liability insurance protects you when a third party is injured in an accident. Owner-operators should ask when leasing onto a company who will pay for their insurance – the company or from driver weekly settlements. A suggestion is that they obtain proof of the Leasing company’s Insurance.

PHYSICAL DAMAGE

Commercial Truck Physical Damage insurance is coverage for your truck and trailer. Your premium is often based on a percentage of the value of your equipment. This coverage is not required by law but if you finance your vehicle the lien holder will require it. Some Companies use the simpler Actual Cash value at the time of the loss.
