Texas car crash 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. The threshold issue is whether the employee was acting in the course and scope of his employment with the company when the crash occurred. For this reason, the employers always attempt distancing themselves from the actions of the employee driver whenever possible. There are still other measures that can be taken such as investigating the prior driving record of the employee regarding driving safety, with a specific focus on whether the company conducted a sufficient and reasonable background check on the driver. Company policies regarding driver instructions can be important as well, not to mention the prior OSHA record of the company.
In the most basic sense, what you would want to be able to establish in a car crash case that occurs on the job is that the other driver was at fault for causing the incident. Then, if you can show that the other driver was at fault, were there other reasons why the company should not have entrusted the driver with one of their vehicles. This information is crucial to determining if you could establish a claim against the company.
