Does Insurance Cover Commercial Work Truck Accidents in Texas?
Commercial work vehicles – including smaller trucks or vans driven by plumbers, electricians, HVAC specialists, and contractors – are everywhere in Houston. When contractors aren’t at a job, they spend much of their time driving around to get supplies, conduct estimates, and perform other work-related tasks.
In Texas, personal car insurance policies won’t cover accidents involving vehicles driven for commercial purposes. So, vehicles driven for a commercial purpose – anything related to a person’s business – must be covered by a commercial auto policy.
Individuals who should have commercial auto insurance include:
- General contractors
- Amazon delivery drivers
- Drivers for DoorDash, Instacart, and other food delivery services
- Pizza delivery drivers
- Uber and Lyft drivers
Since Texas is an at-fault state, the insurance company for the person who causes an auto accident is on the hook for resulting damages. If you’re involved in an accident with the negligent driver of a work truck in Houston, you’ll have to submit a claim to recover benefits from their commercial auto policy.
If the commercial driver doesn’t have a valid auto insurance policy, you can seek benefits from your Uninsured Motorist coverage, seek damages from a third party, and/or file a lawsuit against the negligent work truck driver.
Employers can also be vicariously liable for accidents caused by their employees driving company work vehicles.
What Damages Can I Recover in a Commercial Work Truck Accident in Houston, TX?
