Driving Tips to Avoid Deer Claims

Deer driving tips

Driving Tips to Avoid Deer Claims…

  • Deer are most active between sunset and midnight, as well as pre-dawn hours.
  • October-January is migration and mating season for deer. Be on the look-out!
  • If you see a deer-crossing sign, SLOW DOWN!
  • When you see one deer, there are likely others nearby.
  • Keep your brights on when there is no oncoming traffic.
  • Honk your horn if you see a deer frozen in your headlights.
  • Brake and stay in your lane if you can’t avoid a deer.
  • For insurance purposes, be sure to take photos of the accident scene and your vehicle damage.

 

Insurance for Photographers

Photographers have special insurance needs…

Indiana Farmers Mutual has new coverages for photographers that will make you smile.

Photographers invest heavily in cameras, lenses and other equipment. This specialized equipment needs specialized coverage – whether it’s at their studio or on location.  Indiana Farmers has developed coverages specifically for photographer clients. Check out the highlights below:

BOP Enhancement Endorsement

G A MacDonald Associates can layer coverages to provide the best protection for photographers, such as: Business Personal Property Off-premises – coverage for business personal property off-premises is a must for photographers, so Indiana Farmers has increased the limit to $25,000.

Photography Endorsement

Scheduled Photographic Equipment Off-premises Provides coverage for scheduled photographic equipment in transit or not located at the insured premises. Unscheduled Photographic Equipment Off-premises Provides coverage up to $5,000 per item with a $25,000 occurrence limit for unscheduled photographic equipment in transit or not located at the insured premises. Combine that with the BOP Enhancement endorsement and you have $50,000 in coverage for unscheduled equipment. Failure to Deliver Photographic Product Coverage A photographer’s worst nightmare – damaged equipment after a full day of shooting. We can’t bring back the photos, but we can provide coverage for claims arising from failing to deliver photographic product due to loss or damage to photographic film or electronic media.

Coming soon: Photography – Amendment of Coverage Territory for “Photographic Equipment” – World Wide Coverage

We’ll soon be able to endorse scheduled equipment for world-wide coverage … perfect for those destination weddings and more. We’ll let you know as soon as these coverages are available.

PHP leaving the Affordable Care Act

PHP Fort WaynePhysicians Health Plan (PHP) announced today that it will leave the ACA’s Indiana marketplace in 2017.

Fort Wayne Uber drivers unaffected by City insurance requirements

Fort Wayne UberWhile the City of Fort Wayne has been grappling with raising insurance requirements on taxi companies, ride-sharing programs like Uber will likely be unaffected.

Understandably, some cab operators are irritated by the discrepancy. Yellow Cab owner Hassan Nassor told The News-Sentinel, “What regulations do they have to follow? They shouldn’t be able to operate at all.”

Most personal auto policies specifically exclude coverage for damage caused while collecting a fee to transport others.
