4.13.13 Insurance

The Risk Management Office administers the University’s vehicle liability coverage.  Accurate and current proof of coverage cards placed in vehicles by the Facilities and Construction Management Department are to be kept in every vehicle at all times.
The Mississippi Tort Claims Act provides protection and is the exclusive remedy only while the automobile is used within the scope and course of one’s duties for the University.  Within Mississippi, the limit is $500,000 per occurrence.  When out of state, other state laws regarding limits may apply.
If an employee is injured, Workers’ Compensation will apply as the exclusive remedy to the employee injured in a vehicle collision while engaged in the course and scope of one’s duties for the University.
