Industry Targets > TRANSPORTATION
Transportation is considered the second most hazardous industry in the U.S., with 5.2 out of every 100 transportation workers sustaining work-related injuries. Vehicular accidents are the most common cause of transportation industry injuries* and continue to rise. Truckers also incur injuries while loading or unloading freight, making roadside repairs on the truck, and slipping and falling while climbing in and out of the vehicle.
Additionally, Workers’ Compensation insurance is more complex for the transportation and trucking industry because drivers often travel through many different states, each with different laws. If, for example, the driver is based in Georgia and is injured in Oregon, coverage needs to work.
These are just some of the issues that make securing Workers’ Compensation insurance for transportation risks difficult without an experienced partner. Monarch Partners Group (MPG) can help provide you with the right insurance solution for your transportation clients.
