PA Work Vehicle Accident Attorneys, Freeburn Hamilton
Car accidents occur every day including car accidents involving work vehicles. If an individual is driving a vehicle in order to perform work duties and is involved in an accident the employer can be held liable.
There are multiple ways an employer can be held liable for a work vehicle accident including:
- Employer Negligence – this occurs during the hiring process as well as employee supervision. When a company hires a someone knowing they will be using a work vehicle the employee is responsible to maintain supervision of the driver and make sure they are being safe on the road.
- Employee Supervision – this falls under employer negligence occurring when proper safety techniques are not being used. Employers should have safety policies in place for all drivers and should make sure they are being executed. If there becomes a lack of supervision among employees the employer can be held liable for negligence.
- Vicarious Liability – this asserts that the actions of the agent are the same as those of the principle directing the agent. The employer is considered to be the “principal” role.
