It is not uncommon for the driver who caused injuries in an accident to be employed by the vehicle owner. In such cases, the injured victim may be able to sue the employer of the driver if their negligence contributed to the injuries. In order to succeed in a lawsuit against an employer for their employee’s negligence, it is necessary to show that the employer was negligent in hiring, training, or supervising their employee.
An injured victim can also sue the owner of the vehicle if they were negligent in maintaining their vehicle or managing its use. This claim can help recover compensation for all medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages.
