Passenger Accident Coverage

Posted March 20, 2015 by Administrator

Trucking collisions and accidents happen, and coverages are widely available to protect drivers from liability and provide compensation for medical expenses. But coverage for any passengers that may ride in the vehicle is usually separate, and often goes overlooked. Did you know that in most states a passenger can sue the trucking company and driver of the truck if they are injured in an accident while riding as a guest – even if the authorized passenger is a family member?

The bottom line is that you need to protect your company – as well as the passengers riding in your truck – and this can be done by buying passenger accident insurance. In addition to helping your passengers obtain access to accident medical benefits, the Specialty Insurance Solutions Trucking Industry Passenger Accident Insurance Plan may help keep the claim(s) off of your liability insurance policy.
