Do I Need Commercial Auto Insurance?
Personal auto policies typically don’t cover business uses of automobiles. If your business’s drivers are in an accident or if your vehicles are damaged or stolen, a commercial auto policy may cover the associated expenses. Additionally, state laws may place requirements on which coverages are necessary.
What’s Does Commercial Auto Insurance Cover?
Commercial auto insurance typically offers several types of coverage, including:
Liability coverage—This may provide coverage if your business’s driver is at-fault in an auto accident. It may provide compensation for third-party property damage or bodily injuries, and it may pay for associated legal expenses. Texas state law dictates minimum amounts of required liability coverage.
Collision coverage—This may pay for damage to your business’s vehicle after a collision with another automobile or object (e.g., fence).
Comprehensive coverage—This may help pay for damages or losses after a non-collision incident involving your business’s vehicle (e.g., vandalism, theft or fire damage).
Additionally, other policies and endorsements may be available, including:
Uninsured/underinsured motorist (UM/UIM) coverage—This may provide coverage if the at-fault driver of the other vehicle involved in an accident with your business’s vehicle does not have insurance or does not have high enough limits to cover the cost of the associated damages.
Medical payments coverage—If your business’s driver is in an accident while driving a company vehicle, this may help pay for the driver’s and their passengers’ medical bills, regardless of fault.
Personal injury protection (PIP)—Like medical payments coverage, this may provide payments for injuries to your business’s driver or their passengers after an accident. Additionally, PIP may provide compensation for their resulting lost income. Texas law stipulates policies must include personal injury protection, or the policyholder must sign a waiver declining coverage.
