If I was hit by a commercial vehicle in a Florida car accident, is the employer of the other driver also responsible?Return to FAQ Videos
Yes. In that situation, the employer can be responsible. There’s many people that can be responsible and liable in an auto negligence case, accident case. Obviously it’s the driver, but it’s also the owner of the vehicle can be responsible. That’s called vicarious responsibility liability. In this type of situation, when a commercial vehicle’s involved, typically it is the employer owns the vehicle and therefore, they can be responsible.
