Tow Truck Insurance Fairfield Ohio – Have You Read Your Policy Yet?
Chances are good that you have purchased some kind of insurance before, such as car insurance or homeowners insurance. Before you settled on coverage did you read your policy?
If you said no, you are probably not alone. Many people do not bother to give their insurance policies much thought, but such a blasé attitude toward your insurance coverage can be dangerous because of those pesky exclusions of coverage we have mentioned before.
Exclusions of coverage are specific situations pointed out in the language of an insurance policy for which coverage would not be granted by the insurance company. The only way to make yourself aware of the exclusions of coverage lurking in your insurance policy is to read your policy very carefully!
Tow Truck Insurance Fairfield Ohio – Claims Scenario
In our last article we learned how “Penny Pincher” Perry Plumbucket suffered serious financial damage because of an exclusion of coverage that he was not aware of. He assumed that his policy protected his trucks from collision with an animal but it turned out that that wasn’t the case.
We then posed this follow-up question: Since a personal automobile insurance policy would have covered a claim due to collision with an animal such as a deer, why is damage caused by an animal not listed on “Penny Pincher” Perry’s insurance policy?
The answer is simple, and an important lesson to learn and be aware of: though there are often similarities, insurance coverage differs from company to company. What is covered by one insurance company’s policy may not necessarily be covered by another’s policy.
Let’s compare snippets from two different companies’ commercial auto insurance policies to illustrate this fact. The following are examples of a type of coverage usually called “Specified Causes of Loss”:
INSURING AGREEMENT – FIRE AND THEFT WITH COMBINED ADDITIONAL COVERAGE (CAC)
Subject to the Limits of Liability, if you pay the premium for Specified Causes of Loss Coverage we will pay for loss to your insured auto and its permanently attached equipment caused by:
- fire, lightning or explosion;
- windstorm or hail;
- flood or rising water;
- malicious mischief or vandalism;
- the stranding, sinking, burning, collision, or derailment of any conveyance in or upon which your insured auto is being transported; or
- collision with a bird or animal.
No losses other than those specifically described above will be covered under Part II of this policy.
As you can see, Company A’s policy provides coverage for collision with an animal, as well a handful of other forms of damage.
SECTION III – PHYSICAL DAMAGE
Coverage 1. We will pay for loss to a covered auto or its equipment under Specified Causes of Loss Coverage Caused by:
- Fire, lightning or explosion;
- Windstorm, hail or earthquake;
- Mischief or vandalism; or
- The sinking, burning, collision or derailment of any conveyance transporting the covered auto.
As you can see, Company B’s policy looks very similar to Company A’s, but you’ll notice that coverage for collision with a bird or animal is missing.
The difference is subtle. How do you guard yourself against overlooking something like this? Like we said before: by reading your policy very carefully.
