COMMERCIAL AUTO COVERAGE
Our primary responsibility to clients is to keep their fleet on the road.
Who Is Covered
The named insured is usually the business. Automatically included as insured's are employees, owners of borrowed vehicles and
anyone using the business auto with permission. A bank or leasing company with an interest in an insured vehicle may be
included as an additional insured.
The liability coverage of the commercial auto policy provides protection against legal liability arising out of the
ownership, maintenance, or use of any insured automobile. The insuring agreement agrees to pay damages for bodily injury
or property damage for which the insured is legally responsible because of an automobile accident resulting from the
ownership, maintenance, or use of the covered auto. It also agrees to defend the insured for all legal defense costs
which are in addition to the policy limits.
Medical Payments Coverage - Similar to the coverage of the same name under a general liability policy, auto medical
payments is a goodwill coverage. These payments are made without regard to fault. It offers an opportunity to
voluntarily pay medical expenses in the hope of avoiding litigation.
Uninsured Motorist Coverage - Provides for payments of damages due to bodily injury to the insured by an uninsured
Underinsured Motorist Coverage - Coverage is provided when limits carried by the at-fault driver are insufficient to pay for
bodily injury damages.
Non-Owned Auto - Provides protection for partners, employees, or members of households using the vehicle for your business
Hired Auto - Coverage is provided only for autos leased, hired, rented, or borrowed for use in the named insured's
Physical Damage Coverages
Collision Coverage - Provides protection against loss or damage to a covered auto resulting from the impact with another
vehicle or object. Collision losses can be paid regardless of fault.
Comprehensive Coverage - Provides protection against loss or damage to a covered auto resulting from loss other than a
collision or upset. This coverage also provides for supplemental payments for transportation expenses in the event of
total theft of a covered auto or a non-owned auto.
Specified Causes of Loss - This provides coverage against loss from fire, lightning, or explosion; theft; windstorm; hail
or earthquake; flood; mischief or vandalism; and shrinking, burning, collision or derailment of a conveyance transporting
the covered auto.
Hired Auto - Automatically provides for physical damage coverage to any vehicle your business hires or borrows, as long as
you have liability coverage on vehicles you hire and physical damage on vehicles you own.
