Aberdeen, city, Grays Harbor county, western Washington, U.S., on the Pacific estuaries of the Chehalis, Wishkah, and Hoquiam rivers (which together form Grays Harbor). With Hoquiam and Cosmopolis, Aberdeen forms a tri-city area. Captain Robert Gray navigated the inlet in the shipColumbiaon May 7, 1792, and named it Bullfinch Harbour. In 1878 settler Samuel Benn laid out a village, which 10 years later merged with theadjacentsettlement of Wishkah to form the town of Aberdeen. A Northern Pacific Railway line reached the city in 1895 after residents donated their labour to build a branch, giving Aberdeen an economic advantage over its larger neighbours; it grew to become the commercial and industrial centre of the area. A fire devastated the downtown district in 1904; afterward most of the city's buildings were made of brick rather than wood. Fishing, lumbering, seafood processing, and tourism are its economic mainstays. The deepwater port of Grays Harbor is midway between Aberdeen and Hoquiam. The two-year Grays Harbor College was founded at Aberdeen in 1930. Inc. city, 1890. Pop. (2000) 16, 461; (2010) 16, 896.Aberdeen, Washington, on the banks of the Chehalis River. Joe Mabel
Continuing challenges in commercial auto liability range from distracted driving to increased miles driven and vehicles on the road to higher vehicle repair costs and rising severity in liability claims. Tow trucks are no exception.
'Commercial auto in general is not going to catch a break for the next several years,' Thompson said. Most everything that's commercial auto from trucking to dump trucks to garage risks is difficult. 'Any place now where there is a human being touching an auto is warfare.'
For tow trucks, it's rear-end collisions that are 'bringing insurance companies to their knees,' Thompson said.
'Drivers are going too fast and are distracted,' Thompson said. 'When you are driving a heavy commercial vehicle, like a tow truck, and you hit a car with three or four people in it, all of those people have neck and back injuries, you total their car, you will have $30,000 worth of damage to your tow truck, and it's just a rear-end collision, which theoretically is preventable.'
Right now, Thompson and ATIG are doing damage control and just trying to keep their current clients insured. 'We are working three times as hard to keep the risks that we have but there's a lot of angry people right now. We are catching it from all sides.'
None of my markets will write a towing operation and schedule a tow truck for auto liability or physical damage.'
MGAs, other brokers, and the few insurers left in the space are swamped. 'We are trying to hold our clients' hands through this and explain what's going on.'
Thompson has even had to turn away new business. 'People are calling up panicked, they are in tears because they are going to lose their business. They expire in two days and their premium tripled but you can't help them,' he said. 'I'm at the mercy of the MGAs/brokers/insurers and they only have so much manpower. Everyone is on edge.'
The only thing towing companies can do is to manage their risk, Thompson said.
'I've got guys that are now putting cameras inside the trucks both facing outward and inward and if they catch their drivers eating or talking on the phone or texting, there is zero tolerance. They are fired,' he said.
He doesn't expect the insurance market for towing to bounce back anytime soon either. 'It will be a long time before insurers react to improved risk management in firms.'
For now, focus on driver training, he said. 'I can't specify that enough. And settle more claims out of pocket if you can legally. And if you have insurance right now, and it's semi affordable, then protect it with your life.'
