People with disabilities throughout the United States rely on paratransit services to get them to work and other places they need to go. Paratransit transportation supplements a local mass transit system by helping those who would otherwise be unable to access it. A paratransit fleet typically consists of vans and small buses equipped with wheelchair lifts to accommodate individuals with limited mobility.
Operating a paratransit company provides a much-needed service to any community, but it also presents some risks. Because these vehicles spend so much time on the road, the risk of an accident is high. An injured party could sue the service provider, resulting in a significant, potentially devastating financial loss for the company.
While liability insurance protects against these losses, it’s not easy to obtain a policy, as many insurance companies don’t want the exposure. If you’re looking for a reliable paratransit commercial insurance partner, XINSURANCE is ready to help.
