Commercial Liability Extends to Those Using Their Car In the Course of Employment

The roads here in Orange County are crowded, and many drivers are in the course of their work day when they cause an accident resulting in injury. Their employer is often liable for the injuries caused by an employee traveling for work, and it is important to work with an attorney with extensive experience and expertise in commercial liability and motor vehicle accidents.  If you are involved in an injury accident with someone while they are at work due to their negligence, you usually have a financial claim against their employer as well.

My name is Rivers J. Morrell, III and I have served the residents of Anaheim, Santa Ana, Irvine, Mission Viejo and Orange County for more than 40 years. Accidents often result in serious and permanent injuries, and the costs associated with medical treatment, lost wages, ongoing care and therapy as well as enduring the pain and suffering associated with the injury may exceed the insurance coverage of many drivers.

If the person at fault was driving in the course of their employment, we are also able to pursue the liability coverage of their employer to ensure that our clients receive the medical care and compensation to which they are entitled by California law. These corporations are often defended by large legal teams at law firms with seemingly unlimited resources.  This can seem intimidating to many accident victims (and many lesser experienced attorneys as well.)

What Should You Do After a Car Accident?

Fatal Accidents and DUI Related Injuries Associated with Company Parties

Many fatal accidents involve a driver who is under the influence of alcohol or drugs  resulting in an accident with someone while they are at work under an employers liability exposure.  In California this is known as a wrongful death, and their employer may be as liable as they are for the loss of your loved one.  Unfortunately, in many cases these drivers were previously attending a work party, networking function, or business meeting directly associated with their employment.  Their actions create a liability for their employers, and after more than 40 years of experience I can tell you that these cases can be quite legally complex.
