Business & Commercial Auto Insurance Information

Commercial Insurance in El Paso, Anthony, Socorro and San Antonio

Commercial Auto Insurance

As a business owner in El Paso or San Antonio, you need the same kinds of insurance coverages for the car you use in your business as you do for a car used for personal travel — liability, collision and comprehensive, medical payments (known as personal injury protection in some states) and coverage for uninsured motorists. In fact, many people use the same vehicle for both business and personal use. If the vehicle is owned by the business, make sure the name of the business appears on the commercial insurance policy as the “principal insured” rather than your name. This will avoid possible confusion in the event that you need to file a claim or a claim is filed against you.

How are Business Auto and Personal Auto Different?

Whether you need to buy a business auto insurance policy will depend on the kind of driving you do. A good insurance agent will ask for many details about how you use vehicles in your business, who will be driving them, and whether employees are likely to be driving their own cars for your business.

While the major coverages are the same, a business auto policy differs from a personal auto policy in many technical respects. Ask your insurance agent to explain all the differences and options. Our experts at Pan American Insurance will be able to answer your questions and help you select the correct policy. It is important that our agents represent you, not the insurance companies.

 


General Liability

If you have a personal umbrella liability policy, there’s generally an exclusion for business-related liability. Make sure you have sufficient auto liability coverage.

Unfortunately for every business owner, the chances of being sued have dramatically increased in the last decade. General Liability insurance can prevent a legal suit from turning into a financial disaster by providing financial protection in case your business is ever sued or held legally responsible for some injury or damage.

General Liability pays losses arising from real or alleged bodily injury, property damage, or personal injury on your business premises or arising from your operations.

Broad Range of General Liability Protection With Commercial Insurance

  • Bodily Injury, including the cost of care, the loss of services, and the restitution for any death that results from injury
  • Property Damage coverage for the physical damage to property of others or the loss of use of that property
  • Products-Completed Operations provides liability protection (damages and legal expenses up to your policy’s limit) if an injury ever resulted from something your company made or service your company provided
  • Products Liability is a more specialized product liability insurance that protects your company against lawsuits from product-related injury or accidents
  • Contractual Liability extends to any liability you may assume by entering into a variety of contracts
