Company Vehicle Accidents

Company Vehicle Accidents

HIT BY A COMPANY CAR OR TRUCK?

Company vehicles are cars, vans, trucks, and buses that are owned and operated by a company to be used by employees or agents of that company. Company vehicles are often used to carry work equipment, haul goods, or transport passengers, but may also be used for work-related employee transportation. Unfortunately, when employees drive irresponsibly, dangerously, and negligently, your life is put at risk on the roadways.

If you have been hit by a company vehicle, you could be entitled to compensation. Company vehicle accidents are different because multiple parties could be found reckless or negligent in the wreck. At Thomas J. Henry, our injury attorneys have handled many cases involving employees and company vehicles. Employees can be held negligent as well as the employer if the employee caused the wreck while on the clock.

WHAT IS A COMPANY VEHICLE?

A company vehicle can be any vehicle used by an employee of that company. Here are a few examples of company vehicles:

  • Fleet vehicles
  • Delivery trucks
  • Passenger cars
  • Vehicles used for ridesharing services
  • Utility company trucks
  • Repair company vans
  • Delivery vans
  • Taxicabs, shuttles, and limousines
  • Buses (City, Charter, School)
  • Garbage and dump trucks
  • Construction vehicles
  • Pickup trucks
  • Corporate automobiles
  • Semi-trucks
  • Box trailers

WHO CAN BE HELD LIABLE FOR COMPANY VEHICLE ACCIDENTS?

Companies are generally responsible for the actions of their employees when their employees are acting as agents for the company. This means that when a company vehicle is involved in an accident, the driver and the company may be liable for damages. The driver may be responsible if negligence played a role in the accident. In addition, employers may be liable for:

  • Negligent supervision
  • Negligent hiring practices
  • Failure to verify proper licensing/certification
  • Failure to properly train drivers
  • Failure to maintain vehicle

Regardless of who we decide to sue, our experienced team of injury lawyers understands how large companies and corporations operate when an employee is involved in a serious automobile accident. Throughout the years, we have consistently demonstrated how company vehicle operators have caused debilitating injuries and deaths.
