Employer Liability for a Car Accident
Employer liability for an employee’s car accident can occur when the worker is using their personal vehicle for work-related purposes. Today, many businesses, including home delivery of fast food, rely on their employee using their own vehicle. An employee may use their own vehicle to go from one destination to another for company business. This changes the dynamics of liability if the employee has an accident. The employer now becomes liable for costs emanating from the accident as long as the employee was on the job when it happened. There are restrictions to this, and not everything is covered. Let’s look at an employer’s liability in such situations and what is and isn’t covered.
