10 Sep Keep on Truckin’ Safely and Securely
Commercial Auto Liability Insurance for Truckers
You hit the road with a heavy load, determined to make it across the country or across town, swiftly and smoothly. But you’re hit with some unexpected surprises instead. According to the U.S. Labor Department’s Bureau of Labor Statistics, trucking transportation occupations accounted for slightly more than a quarter of all work-related fatalities last year, more than any other U.S. job.*
Of course, you enjoy your job and look forward to the open road every day. You never expect anything to happen, but here are a few sobering facts: a total of 3,852 people died in large truck crashes in 2015. 16% of these deaths were truck occupants, 69% were occupants of cars and other passenger vehicles, and 15 percent were pedestrians, bicyclists or motorcyclists.**
While not nearly every truck accident results in a fatality, there can be significant financial ramifications. Case in point: a woman sued a trucking company when a trucker jack-knifed his rig across the highway at night. She sustained head injuries and received a $602,000 settlement. Can you afford damages like these? If you’re like most truck drivers, the answer is a resounding “No!” That’s why you need commercial auto liability insurance for truckers from Evolution Insurance Brokers (EIB).
