Fighting For Company Vehicle Accident Victims in Texas

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 worker's 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.

Common Causes of Company Vehicle Accidents

Some of the most prevalent causes include:

  • Distracted Driving: Distracted driving is one of the leading causes of company vehicle accidents. Employees may use mobile devices, adjust vehicle controls, or engage in other activities that divert their attention from the road. Employers must enforce strict policies to minimize distractions and promote safe driving habits.
  • Fatigue: Fatigue is a significant risk factor, especially for employees who drive long distances or work irregular hours. Fatigued drivers have slower response times and impaired judgment, increasing the likelihood of accidents. Employers should monitor work schedules and ensure that employees have adequate rest periods.
  • Inadequate Training: Proper driver training is essential to prevent accidents. Employees who lack sufficient training may not know how to handle company vehicles properly, especially in adverse conditions. Comprehensive training programs covering vehicle operation, defensive driving techniques, and safety protocols are vital.
  • Poor Vehicle Maintenance: Regular maintenance is critical to ensuring the safety of company vehicles. Mechanical failures due to neglected maintenance, like brake malfunctions or tire blowouts, can lead to severe accidents. Employers should implement rigorous maintenance schedules and keep detailed records of all maintenance activities.
  • Reckless Driving: Reckless driving, including speeding, aggressive maneuvers, and disregarding traffic laws, significantly contributes to company vehicle accidents. Employers must promote a safe driving culture and enforce disciplinary actions for reckless behavior.
  • Adverse Weather Conditions: Unfavorable weather conditions, like rain, snow, or fog, can create hazardous driving environments. Drivers must be trained to handle these conditions, and employers should establish protocols for delaying or rescheduling trips during severe weather to ensure safety.
