So why do you need commercial auto insurance in MA?
Commercial Auto Insurance can protect the owner's business against accidents and mishaps involving their vehicle. This type of auto insurance is considered riskier than personal auto insurance, which means it needs specific coverages not found in standard personal policies.
Collision coverage provides financial protection for your business auto. It will take care of any damage incurred in an accident, from scratches to broken windows - all on top quality repairs! This coverage is a must for any business that relies on its vehicles.
It can include two types of physical damage coverage for your insured vehicles. The first is collision loss, which covers damage from auto accidents. The second is comprehensive loss, which covers damage from weather, theft, and other non-collision causes.
If you're not sure whether you need it or how much of it you need, ask one of our specialists - they'll be more than happy to help. And, if you already have it, make sure you keep up with your payments! Your business depends on it.
Commercial auto insurance also covers medical expenses caused by injuries sustained while riding with you or other occupants during a collision; as well as damages sustained when another driver fails/uninsured motorist or hit and run driver causes an accident and you are not at fault.
There are two types of liability coverage. Bodily injury coverage, for accident-related injuries to others, when you're at fault, and property damage coverage for accident-related damage to someone else's property, such as a car or house, when you're at fault.
