Protect Your Business With Commercial Auto Insurance in Massachusetts

commercial auto insurance ma Commercial auto insurance, also known as commercial vehicle coverage or commercial car insurance, helps cover property damage costs and medical expenses when you or one of your employees is involved in a motor vehicle accident while driving a company-owned car for business. Small businesses that own vehicles and use them for business purposes are required to have commercial auto insurance in MA.
Keep in mind that commercial auto insurance differs from personal auto insurance. Personal auto insurance coverage only applies to vehicles that you drive for personal reasons, like running household errands or commuting to and from work. You’ll need commercial auto insurance to cover vehicles you or your employees use for job duties, like picking up supplies or making deliveries.

What Does Commercial Auto Insurance Cover?

If your business depends on any company vehicles to get the job done, you’ll need commercial car insurance to keep you and your employees protected. In Massachusetts, a commercial auto insurance policy often includes the following coverages:
  • Bodily Injury Liability Insurance Coverage helps pay for the other driver’s medical expenses if you or one of your employees causes an accident.
  • Property Damage Liability Insurance Coverage pays for damage that you or your employees cause to someone else’s property.
  • Drive Other Car Coverage covers your business’ executive officers and their spouses if they drive vehicles that aren’t on your commercial auto insurance policy.
  • Collision Coverage helps pay to fix physical damage or replace your business’ car if you hit something, like another car or pole.
  • Comprehensive Coverage can help pay for damages caused by theft, fire or natural disasters.
  • Medical Payments Coverage can help pay for medical expenses for your employees and their passengers in the event of an accident, such as medical treatments and rehabilitations, dental care or funerals.
  • Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Coverage helps pay for you or your employees’ medical expenses or to fix your car if you get into an accident with another driver who lacks enough liability coverage or is uninsured.
  • Hired and non-owned auto insurance offers lawsuit liability coverage if you or your employees are involved in an accident with a personal, rented or leased car that was used for business errands. However, this type of commercial vehicle insurance coverage won’t pay for damages to the personal, rented or leased car.
  • Rental Car Coverage offers liability coverage while you or your employees are driving a rental vehicle for business. Many rental companies have loss damage waivers or collision damage waivers that you can sign to avoid paying for property damage to a rental car.
  • Personal Injury Protection (PIP), known as no-fault insurance, can help cover medical expenses, lost wages or funeral costs after an accident, no matter who is at fault.
