Non-Trucking Liability and Bobtail Insurance

Non-Trucking Liability:

Non-Trucking Liability Insurance, often referred to as NTL insurance, is a specialized form of coverage designed for commercial truck drivers who operate their vehicles for personal use or during times when they are not actively engaged in hauling goods for their motor carriers. When a trucker is off-duty and not under dispatch, their primary liability insurance typically provided by the motor carrier may not apply. NTL insurance steps in to fill this gap, providing coverage for bodily injury and property damage liabilities that may arise while the trucker is using the truck for non-business purposes. This insurance is crucial as it protects the driver from potential financial burdens in case of an accident or mishap during non-business activities.

Bobtail Insurance :

Bobtail insurance, on the other hand, is a specific type of liability coverage designed for commercial truckers who operate under lease or contract with a motor carrier. It provides insurance protection when the trucker is driving the truck without a trailer, known as “bobtailing,” and is not under dispatch to pick up or deliver cargo. During these instances, the motor carrier’s primary liability insurance may not apply. Bobtail insurance fills this gap by covering bodily injury and property damage liabilities that the trucker may face while bobtailing. This insurance is essential for truckers as it shields them from potential financial losses resulting from accidents or incidents that occur while they are not hauling a trailer for their motor carrier.
