Truckers Insurance Coverage
When you hear of truck accidents involving 18-wheelers, you normally find that several people were seriously injured. Fatalities are also not uncommon. That’s because a typical semi truck can weigh up to 80,000 pounds. If you are involved in a serious accident with a commercial truck, your 4,000-pound passenger car won’t have much of a chance to escape unharmed.
Since the potential for serious injuries involving large commercial vehicles is so great, the minimum insurance required for trucks like this is $750,000 according to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations. Often large commercial vehicles carry at least a one million dollar primary policy. Companies who own a number of trucks carry an umbrella policy as well.
In addition, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations require even larger insurance policies for trucks carrying hazardous materials. Commercial passenger vehicles must also be heavily insured.
These insurance companies who handle policies of this nature have “Quick Response Teams” that move onto an accident site immediately to gather any information they can in case there’s a wrongful death lawsuit. These insurance companies know all the loopholes and defenses and it’s their job to make sure victims as little compensation as possible.
