  1. Liability coverage
    1. Covers bodily injury and property damage to the other party.
    2. Exclusion:
      1. Employees from work related injuries – they are covered under “Workman’s Compensation” (this area is discussed in a different page).
      2. If the company was transporting a client’s property, that property would not be covered under the Commercial Auto policy.  A Motor Carrier policy would be necessary.
  2. Physical damage
    1. “Comprehensive Coverage” covers any loss, other than collision or overturn.  Theft, for example, is covered.
    2. “Specific Causes of Loss” is a limited type of comprehensive coverage and covers only:
      1. fire
      2. lightning
      3. explosion
      4. theft
      5. windstorm
      6. hail
      7. earthquake
      8. flood
      9. vandalism or mischief
      10. sinking, burning, collision, or derailment of something transporting the covered automobile.
    3. “Collision Coverage” covers overturn of the covered auto or collision with another object.
  3. Uninsured Motorist and Underinsured Coverage is not part of the Commercial Auto Insurance, but can be added by endorsement.
  4. Business auto coverage is similar to individual coverage, except Commercial Auto does not cover truckers and motor carriers or garages.
