Motor Carrier Insurance – Leased Contractors and Owner-Operators
The trucking business is the livelihood of millions of people throughout the U.S. If you operate a truck-for-hire as an independent contractor, your insurance needs will vary depending on who you work for. For example, drivers who own their own trucks but work as contractors for trucking companies may not need the same extent of liability protection as an independent owner-operator. Although your individual coverage needs will vary according to the nature of your business, your motor carrier insurance may include:
Anything can happen on the road. When drivers and their passengers are hurt by collisions with big trucks – especially large semis – it often results in a lengthy and expensive litigation process. Protect yourself against lawsuits with primary liability insurance that helps cover bodily injury and property damage claims for which you or one of your drivers is at-fault.
Truckers who work under lease for trucking companies often have primary liability protection through their lease. However, what would happen if you caused an accident or injury while operating your truck for private purposes? Non-trucking liability is protection when you drive your truck for non-business purposes. In addition, non-trucking liability could provide protection for the times that you are not hooked up to a loaded trailer and hauling for your company. Often times, the trucking company offering the primary liability will not cover your truck unless you are hooked up to a trailer and hauling for them. Non-trucking liability can provide coverage for those times that you are not hauling a load.
If you collide with another vehicle, median or other object, collision insurance can help pay for repairs to your truck.
When a tree falls on your truck or someone vandalizes your truck at a rest stop, comprehensive insurance can help cover the damages.
When you are carrying precious cargo, it is your job to ensure it gets from point A to point B as safely as possible. Should something happen to your load while it is in your care, you could be held financially responsible. Cargo insurance helps cover you for losses caused by accidents, fires, and other covered events.
Everyone is required to carry liability insurance in Missouri, but some motorists fail to uphold state law. Even among those who do have coverage, the limitations on their policies may not be enough to provide adequate compensation if they cause injuries to you in an accident. Protect yourself with uninsured and underinsured motorist insurance that helps pick up where an at-fault driver’s coverage leaves off.
You spend a lot of time on the road. Though we hope you never need to use it, medical payments insurance can assure that you receive the medical attention you need after an accident is covered regardless of who was at-fault.
