Curious as to what causes truck / van insurance claims?  Some causes you may quickly guess but, other causes may surprise you:

– Striking a deer with the truck / van: it’s amazing how much damage Bambi can do to a P-1200

– Hit and Runs while delivering a package: witnesses love to tell drivers information about the culprit

– Backing into a stationary object: some drivers rely too much on the back-up camera and watch themselves hit trees and tree branches.

– Reaching for something while driving: this simple task takes the eyes, a hand and the mind away from the important task of driving

– Flying raccoon roadkill: a fast moving tractor-trailer tire launched the dead raccoon which then smashed into a windshield (some of our truck programs offer full glass)

– Sinkhole in a driveway (homeowner did not have earthquake/sink hole coverage so it was a Physical Damage claim)

– Not placing a vehicle in park: even a slow moving cargo van can cause serious damage.

How do we avoid some accidents and claims? Most truck / van claims can be prevented by just being focusing on one task: driving.  Also, you may want to use the flashers / hazard lights when parked.  You might be shocked to see how many instances involve other cars hitting the trucks because they simply didn’t see the huge white truck/van.  We can’t change the way other drivers operate but we can help our drivers to be more cautious.  Drive safe!
