Claims Scenario

A waste hauler was transporting hazardous construction debris to a non-owned disposal site when the vehicle was involved in a rollover accident. When the truck overturned the debris was scattered over the road and fell into a nearby creek. The spill was immediately reported, and further contamination was avoided with prompt remediation. The environmental impact of the hazardous material was covered under the transportation pollution liability policy.

Recent Success

In September 2022, a company in Nevada involved in the transportation and disposal of used waste oil approached ALTA to cover their potential pollution exposures. In the past, the insured had suffered an upset and overturn collision, spilling used motor oil onto a public roadway. The insured was liable for the cost of cleanup as business auto coverage did not cover the incident. ALTA provided a comprehensive pollution product for $5,000 that will protect the insured in case of an environmental accident in the future.
