I was referred to Amber by my daughter-in-law. I was involved in two rear end collisions in a three month period. She did an excellent job keeping me informed and explained everything to me, in a manner that I could understand. She followed through with me until I had my settlements.

Atlanta Company Vehicle Accident Lawyer Amber Gilormo Can Help You Recover After a Serious Collision

Company vehicles account for a significant percentage of the traffic on Atlanta’s streets and highways. Unfortunately, while companies should ensure that their employees are capable drivers and employees should operate their company vehicles safely, this is not always the case. If you’ve been injured in a collision involving a company-owned car, truck, van or SUV, you should speak with an Atlanta company vehicle accident lawyer about filing a claim for just compensation.

What Qualifies as a “Company Vehicle”?

A “company vehicle” is any car, truck, van or SUV that a business owns or leases. This could be a sedan that the company’s salespeople drive to and from customers’ locations, a panel van that technicians use to make service calls or a large truck the company uses to make deliveries. While company vehicles will often have logos, wraps or other branding, this is not always the case. In fact, even a car or SUV that looks just like yours could be a company vehicle.

Common Factors in Company Vehicle Accidents

Company vehicle accidents can result from a variety of different factors. This includes all of the factors that can lead to accidents between privately-owned vehicles, plus more related to the vehicle’s company ownership. For example, some of the most common factors in company vehicle accidents include:

  • Distracted driving
  • Drowsy driving
  • Failure to yield
  • Running red lights and stop signs
  • Speeding
  • Inadequate driver training or experience
  • Inadequate vehicle maintenance

Companies have a legal obligation to ensure that they are not putting dangerous drivers or dangerous vehicles on the road. Yet, many companies allow (or expect) their employees to talk on the phone while driving, and many encourage (or force) their employees to meet strict deadlines and log long hours behind the wheel. These factors play a role in many company vehicle accidents. When they do, the company can be held legally accountable.

Recovering Your Losses After an Accident Involving a Company Vehicle in Atlanta

Recovering your losses after an accident involving a company vehicle will often involve filing a claim under the company’s liability insurance policy. Under Georgia law, companies can be held liable for making mistakes and poor decisions that lead to serious and fatal collisions. They can also be held “vicariously liable” for their employees’ mistakes behind the wheel.

But, it may be necessary to pursue a claim under the driver’s auto insurance policy in some situations. This could be the case, for example, if an employee were driving a company vehicle for personal use. Regardless of the circumstances involved, you will need to be careful to protect your legal rights, and you should consult with an experienced Atlanta company vehicle accident lawyer promptly.
