THE COMPANY CAN BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR INJURIES
Generally speaking, the company of the driver responsible will be liable for the actions of their employees, so long as the employee is acting as an "agent" for the company at the time in the course and scope of employment. In certain cases, both the driver and company may be held accountable if they were driving while texting, distracted behind the wheel, or negligent in any way.
Employers may also be held liable for negligence, such as:
Lack of employee supervision.
Poor hiring practices.
Failing to verify an employee's license.
Failing to thoroughly train drivers.
Lack of company vehicle maintenance.
