South Florida automobile accidents involving commercial vehicles can be especially devastating due to the sheer size and weight of some company trucks and semis that take up so much space on our highways.
When the driver of one of these commercial vehicles causes an accident, it is important to consider all of the possible parties who can be named as defendants in your personal injury lawsuit.
The employer of the person who caused the accident is certainly someone who can be held responsible for your pain-and-suffering, lost wages, medical bills, and so on.
For a more detailed explanation, we invite you to either call or e-mail The Law Office Of Bradley Pepper.
If I Was Hit By A Commercial Vehicle In Florida Is The Employer Responsible?
Well, the employer can be held responsible if the driver, or the employee, is driving within the normal course of his employment.
Now, if he's taking direction from the employer, or he's driving to and from an appointment with a customer or making a sale or anything like that, that's the type of case where an employer could be held responsible.
