Bobtail Liability

Driving a Semi without the trailer attached or with an empty trailer attached is known as bobtailing or deadheading. Semi owner operators who occasionally make deadhead trips with or without dispatch are usually required by their motor carrier to have special coverage, known as Bobtail Liability Insurance. Bobtail Liability Coverage pays for property damage or injuries that are caused while a trailer is detached from the truck, whether or not the truck is dispatched on a job. For example: You drop off your load and trailer, and while in transit to your next load, you have an accident. Bobtail Liability Coverage would cover you in this case.
