Is Your Employer Responsible for Your Car Accident?

Have you been in a work-related accident while driving on a Texas road, highway, or interstate? Every day, thousands of Texans get behind the wheel of a car to take care of work-related tasks. For truckers, it’s delivering trailers full of goods. For people in service businesses, it’s meeting with clients.


Whatever the reason, if your employer has asked you to drive as a part of your occupation, the business may be responsible if you’re involved in an accident. If you’ve suffered as a result of a poorly maintained business car or because of your boss’s unsafe request, your employer may face serious legal consequences.
