Massachusetts Commercial Truck Insurance
There were over 5,000 large trucks involved in fatal crashes in the United States in 2019. That marked a 43 percent increase since 2010. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, of 453 total vehicles involved in fatal accidents on Massachusetts roads, 32 of them were large trucks.
With the risk of road accidents weighing in the back of every trucker’s mind, it’s essential to understand the requirements for Massachusetts truck insurance and partner with an independent insurance agent to make sure you have policies in place designed to protect you and your drivers.
Why do I need Massachusetts Trucking Insurance?
To be certain, insuring your drivers and trucks is not optional. It is required by law. On top of that, it just makes sense since it protects your company financially. Here are some numbers to keep in mind:
- $91,000: The average cost of all large truck crashes
- $200,000: The average cost of a crash with injuries (and that average only increases based on the severity of the crash)
- $1,000,000+: The potential cost of a crash if fatalities are involved
Physical damage coverage protects you from losses, especially when a truck is sidelined for repairs. But as trucking insurance rates continue to rise, it’s crucial to be knowledgeable about things that are required and what your options are.
