Are Employers Liable in a Texas Car Accident?
FILING A PERSONAL INJURY CLAIM FOLLOWING AN AUTO ACCIDENT CAN BE A COMPLICATED ISSUE IN MANY INSTANCES
And, determining which party is financially responsible is chief among the questions for the injured parties. Accident victims who attempt representing themselves in an accident injury claim could potentially not realize the value of their claim when an opposing driver is at fault for a collision because there could be other negligent parties as well, including employers in certain situations. The material facts of a case can greatly impact the final outcome when financial damages are paid, and having an experienced Houston auto accident advocate like Attorney Hector Sandoval of the Sandoval Law Firm can ensure that all avenues of financial recovery are recognized and pursued.
When an Employer Can Be Responsible?
Texas accident law holds that employers can be found liable for injuries resulting from an accident involving an employee who is on duty and is performing a job-related task when the accident occurs. However, the employers always attempt distancing themselves from the actions of the employee driver whenever possible.
