Day 1

INSURANCE CONSIDERATIONS WITH REGARD TO THE CURRENT STATE OF MOTOR CARRIER OPERATIONS AND REGULATIONS

For-hire interstate motor carriers’ insurance needs, underwriting and pricing, are based on the motor carriers’ operations as well as government regulations. This session will address how current changes will require adjustments in providing insurance in the COVID-19 era and beyond. The workplace need for qualified drivers will require a more diverse driver pool and adjustments from management and equipment as well as additional insurance; EPL, WC and D&O Liability

No drivers – No mirrors – No problem! There are ever-changing technologies that insureds have available that affect crashes and in turn affect insurance; from lane change departure warnings to anti-overturn to autonomous features. What happens if insureds do not equip their units as they could/should have, and with that equipment would they have avoided the crash? Autonomous units are being used today with more use in the future. When a driver is no longer required, who will be liable for a crash; not only liability but also physical damage for the additional cost of repairing or replacing a unit following a crash.

Day 2

INSURANCE CLAIMS CONSIDERATIONS

Protecting Insureds’ Assets – After a serious accident how do you help the insured protect their assets as well as how to achieve the best results. We have an attorney and accountant who will provide guidelines on why and how to best accomplish.

Cyber Liability – Preventive considerations, coverage considerations, and legal concerns will be discussed. Daily we see news about data breaches, malware, ransomware, and more. What are the potential exposures to the motor carrier? How can we best help protect our insureds and what coverage is available?

Non-Traditional Insurance Programs for Motor Carriers – With the increased cost of first-dollar insurance coverage, financially sound motor carriers with controls in place are utilizing current technology and having credible loss history. Are there other options available for these unique carriers on the insurance front? This session will look at alternative programs to allow the motor carrier/insured to assume some of the cost of claims for a reduction in insurance premium –What programs are available and how they can be set-up? What are the benefits and pitfalls?

A Crash Happens and the Legal Process Begins – Mediation is an essential part of the process. First consideration provided by our policies is the insurance promise to defend and assign an attorney. The complaint spells out what is being claimed and what the claim is based on. What happens next? Can the case be settled prior to a trial? Is mediation mandated by the court or voluntary?– The mediation process will help the insured understand the facts and help insurers settle the claim as early as possible.
