Proving Liability in Your Case
Commercial vehicle accident cases sometimes involve a doctrine known as respondeat superior. Under this doctrine, an employer is responsible for their employee’s negligence.
To pursue a respondeat superior claim in your Plano commercial vehicle accident, we will need to prove that at the time the at-fault driver caused the accident, they were:
- Working as an employee of the potentially liable company
- Acting in the “course and scope” of their job
At D. Miller & Associates, PLLC, we can help you understand if this doctrine applies to your case. Call us to learn more during a free case evaluation.
We can analyze all the evidence in your case to make sure that the driver of the at-fault vehicle was following the rules and regulations. If we find that the liable driver was under the influence of alcohol or drugs, or driving for longer periods of time than allowed under the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s Hours of Service Regulations, we will apply it to your case.
