Railway Insurance

Railways cut through practically all of the communities in Canada, and in Alberta especially. Accidents in recent years have drawn attention to the liability issues that the industry faces. Therefore, it is vital that the companies that operate them have the right Railroad Liability Insurance coverage effectively in place.

In 2013, an oil train hurtled seven miles downhill and crashed into the center of the Quebec town of Lac-Megantic due to an engineer’s failure to properly set the brakes. There was also a fire on the train just hours prior to the crash. At least five of the train cars exploded. Parts of the town were devastated, more than a hundred homes were destroyed and forty-seven people lost their lives. The cost of cleanup was close to $200 million. This was only the fourth-deadliest railroad accident in the history of Canada.

If a train happens to derail, the operator is generally at fault for the damages. This includes property damage, injuries and the lost freight. There are five main coverage types of Railway Insurance, which includes:

  • Property damage and bodily injury – This will provide coverage for the destruction and injuries that are the result of a derailment.
  • Bill of lading, or cargo insurance – This type of coverage will provide the shipper with a reimbursement for the damaged or lost cargo, which is usually a set amount that follows a loss schedule. Therefore, shippers will often secure their own separate cargo insurance.
  • Foreign rolling stock insurance – This insurance will cover the cost of losses to the cars that are not owned by the operator.
  • Evacuation expense insurance – This coverage will take care of the cost to clean up after the spilling of hazardous materials, such as polluting or toxic substances.

Generally, coverage is provided for pollution and terrorism. This has been the cause of some concern for experts who feat the accumulation of explosive materials in locations that are difficult to protect, which may be tempting to terrorists.

  • I found Leibel Insurance to be an accommodating, friendly insurance company that was more thorough than any other insurance company I have encountered over the last ten years. Their agents are very friendly and easy to deal with. I anticipate remaining with them for quite some time, and insuring my two up-and-coming young drivers too.
