Learn About Your Rights from a Boca Raton Company Vehicle Accident Attorney
Company vehicles are all over the road. From service trucks and utility vans to sales cars and delivery vehicles, company vehicles are a constant presence throughout South Florida. Unfortunately, this means that accidents involving company vehicles are common as well, and many local residents find themselves in need of a Boca Raton company vehicle accident attorney.
Filing a Claim After an Accident Involving a Company Vehicle
Like other types of car accidents, if you were injured in an accident involving a company vehicle, you may be entitled to financial compensation. This is true whether you got hit by a company vehicle or you were driving a company vehicle when you were involved in a crash.
If You Were Injured in a Collision with a Company Vehicle
If you were injured in a collision with a company vehicle, you may have a claim against the company that owns the vehicle. Companies can be held liable for car accidents involving their vehicles on several grounds, including:
- Hiring an inexperienced, unqualified or unlicensed driver
- Vicarious liability for an employee’s negligence behind the wheel
- Forcing an employee to spend too many hours behind the wheel
- Failing to adequately maintain the vehicles in their corporate fleet
- Overloading their company vehicles with heavy inventory or equipment
Companies that own vehicles will typically have insurance that covers accident victims’ injuries. However, filing this type of insurance claim is very different from filing a claim under a normal auto insurance policy. As a result, when dealing with serious injuries from a company vehicle accident, it is especially important to have an experienced attorney on your side.
If You Were Injured in an Accident While Driving a Company Vehicle
If you were injured while driving a company vehicle, your legal rights depend on two key factors. These are (i) your employment status and (ii) why the accident happened. Our attorneys represent employees and independent contractors who have been injured in company vehicle accidents as well, and we can use our experience to seek maximum compensation based on the circumstances of your case.
