If you’re a company that uses trucks and big rigs regularly, then you should definitely consider getting more than just the required tow truck and rig insurance coverage.
Accidents involving trucks usually amount to higher damages that must be paid to the others involved in the accident – even if your driven isn’t at fault. A startling example can be found in recent news where one of a trucking company’s trucks hit an Amtrak passenger train – killing six people and injuring many others. The trucking company lost the civil suit and is required to pay $4,500,000 and an additional $1,000,000 in attorney’s fees.
Even if you think you’ve got highly-trained, professional drivers, and that your trucks and rigs are well-maintained – you should still take precautions by obtaining increased tow truck and rig insurance coverage.
Statistics by The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration show that in 2012, 333,000 big rigs were involved in accidents – and 3,921 fatalities and 104,000 injuries resulted from big rig accidents. Even worse, “crashes involving large trucks showed a 4-percent increase from…” 2011 to 2012. The “fatalities in these crashes showed a…” 14 percent cumulative increase resulting from these accidents involving big rigs from 2011 to 2012.
