Answer:

Suing a Trucking Company for Drunk Driving

People often ask who we are going to sue in a trucking case, a commercial trucking case. We tell them we will sue as many people as we can think of. One issue is whether we can we sue the employer of the driver who was involved in this collision who was drunk. The answer is yes. The reason for that is that, in Florida, an employer who puts someone behind the wheel of a tractor trailer, a semi, is responsible for the conduct of that driver, whether they’re drunk or not. If they’re drunk, it puts the employer in a very difficult position. It can bring in issues of punitive damages. It’s the employer who usually buys the insurance policy. Whether you’ve got that issue or any other issue, call us. If you’ve been hurt in a trucking accident in Nassau County or Duval County, we’ll sit down. We’ll go over things and see how best we can help you.
