Getting into a car accident is always stressful and confusing. It can get even more so if that accident happened while you were either driving a company car or were hit by someone who was. Let an experienced attorney review your case and handle the complexities that can arise.
If you or a loved one has been injured in an auto accident due to another driver’s negligence, we at Mike Agruss Law are here for you every step of the way to ensure that your rights are protected, and you are fully compensated for your injuries and losses.
Employees are considered an extension of the company they work for. Any actions that an employee takes are considered an action of the company and is known as vicarious liability.
While the company may be considered at-fault for the behavior of their employee, there are times they may try to dispute vicarious liability. For example, if the employee was in the company vehicle but was not technically “on duty”, the employer can try to claim the company is not at fault.
If an employer is not determined to be negligent for an accident, they may still be determined to be liable. This most often happens for a few reasons, including:
- Falsifying work logs-Some employers will have their employees falsify their work logs to allow them to work longer, which is both unsafe and illegal. Both the employee and the company can be found liable if work laws are broken.
- Failure to maintain vehicles-If a company fails to ensure its work vehicles are maintained, properly inspected, and in safe operating condition, a company could be liable.
- Failure to train employees-Companies are tasked with ensuring their employees are properly trained and licensed for the work they are performing and properly disciplined when an infraction occurs.
Whether the employee, the company, or both are found liable for an accident, the insurance company will do its best to pay out as little as possible.
