Employers may be liable in a Louisville car accident which results in injuries to other parties which are the result of an employee’s negligence. Many of the people with whom we share the road are actually driving as part of their work. If you are injured by someone who is driving as part of their work duties their employer can be held financially accountable for resulting damages such as, but not limited to:
- all past, present and future medical bills associated with the accident
- compensation for lost wages due to missed work as you recover
- full and fair compensation for having to suffer the injuries and endure your recovery
This is another reason why it is so important to contact the experienced Louisville motor vehicle accident attorneys at HLH if you have been injured in a car crash or truck collision. There are often multiple parties who share a portion of the financial liability which arises from any injury accident. This is fairly obvious when an employee is driving a company vehicle and wearing a uniform.
Many people don’t realize this applies to anyone who is driving their car as part of their work related duties. This includes everything from running work related errands to calling on prospects or customers or providing on-site support.
If you are involved in an accident during normal work hours (7 am to 6pm) the party responsible for your accident may very well be at work. It will be important to preserve all evidence and eyewitness accounts and to identify all responsible parties. Employers may be liable in a Louisville car accident for anyone who is in the midst of their work day performing work related duties.
