WHAT IS COMMERCIAL AUTO INSURANCE?
Commercial Auto Insurance is a way for you to transfer the risk and costs associated with auto accidents and even theft. With the proper insurance, you can protect your financial investment in your vehicles and in your business by transferring liability to an insurance carrier who will not only defend you in court, but pay claims up to your insurance limit on your behalf if you are sued over an accident. In addition, if you are in an accident caused by someone else who either has no auto insurance, underinsured, or even flees the scene, then you could be reimbursed for the damage to your vehicle.
