Risks are common in business. In fact, you operate your business in a world where very few things are guaranteed, with the exception of risks to your business. Up to now, your planning has paid off in some areas. In other areas, maybe not so much.
When it comes to your commercial auto insurance, it’s likely you didn’t follow a plan. You may have purchased what you thought was a great value for your business. Unfortunately, research conducted by the National Council on Compensation estimates that work-related car accidents cost 65 percent more than the average insurance claim. If you haven’t factored in the real cost of commercial auto insurance when you purchased insurance, then you may not have the best insurance for your business.
Understand the Risks
In the past, driving has always been a precarious business activity. Beyond potentially placing an employee with a bad driving record behind the wheel, there are many driving risks great employee drivers face while driving. Employees could encounter:
- A reckless driver
- Traffic congestion with frequent braking
- Uneven pavement
- Brake failure
To make matters worse, these days, more people are distracted behind the wheel because they are talking on their phone or texting. All of these factors increase your employees’ chances of experiencing a wreck. As a result, you need enough auto insurance to cover the possibility of the worst case scenario.
