Company Vehicle Accidents
Many jobs require that employees use company vehicles to complete daily tasks and obligations. In most instances, using a company vehicle helps benefit the greater good of a corporation.
However, in some instances where an accident occurs involving a commercial vehicle and another pedestrian automobile, serious injuries are a possibility, and someone is going to have to pay the piper.
Don’t let it be you. Go through the documentation process of the aftermath of an accident and hire a personal injury lawyer who can fight for the compensation you deserve.
Who is Liable in a Company Vehicle Accident?
After any car accident, the big question on everyone’s mind is obvious: Who was at fault?
In a situation where you were clearly hit by another driver, the aftermath is extremely clean-cut. However, if you were the driver at fault in a company vehicle, the blame falls in a very gray area.
In most instances, if an accident occurred during work hours, or if you were safely performing your work duties (i.e. a delivery or product pickup), your company’s insurance is responsible for covering all injuries involved in the accident.
However, if you were driving around in the company vehicle after-hours, or using it for personal use (in legal terms, a “frolic”) when the accident occurred, your business’ insurance may not be obligated to cover your pain and suffering.
Were You Injured in the Accident?
While workers compensation would most likely cover your medical bills, lost wages and related financial obligations related to your car or truck accident, your pain and suffering from an injury usually extends even beyond the point in time of the accident.
In a situation where you were severely injured in an accident with a company vehicle, you deserve to collect on your pain and suffering from your employer’s insurance. Many insurance companies in these situations may say that workers compensation is enough, but the personal injury lawyers of Bober Law Firm are prepared to help provide the documentation and proof that convinces them otherwise.
