Insuranceopedia Explains Bobtail Liability Insurance

When a truck is in an accident while being operated for business, it is going to be covered by a primary liability insurance. This is required by law for anyone in the trucking business. When it is in an accident that is not work-related, it is covered by a separate policy that's not for business. Bobtail liability insurance covers the truck when its trailer is detached or has already unloaded its cargo and is being driven for non-business purposes.
