WHEN YOU CAN SUE A COMPANY FOR THEIR EMPLOYEE’S CAR ACCIDENT

Call Us Now: 951.693.3132

Let’s say that you were rear-ended in a car accident and experienced painful whiplash that left you unable to work for an entire year. In normal circumstances, you probably have a good case for suing the other driver’s insurance company to receive compensation for your losses.

However, if the other driver was driving as part of their job on behalf of a company, you may also have grounds to sue that driver’s company under the theory of “vicarious liability.” To use this standard, you will have to prove that the other driver was driving in a work capacity. For example, if the driver was simply on their morning commute to work, this standard would not apply. However, if an employee was driving to a trade show or was bringing back a catered lunch for a big meeting, the standard is likely to apply.

Not sure if you can sue a driver’s company after you were injured in an auto accident? If you live or work in Temecula, contact the attorneys of Albrecht & Albrecht. We would be happy to evaluate your case.
