Who to Sue When Your Auto Accident in Lancaster Was Caused by a Work-Related Call

Posted Michael Kosik on Aug 16, 2014 in Car Accidents

As you were driving down Route 30 approaching 202, you noticed the driver next to you begin to swerve. The next thing you knew, the car colliding with your car, knocking your vehicle over on its side. After talking with the motorist, you learned that he was on the phone talking with his employer at the time of the crash. Who are you able to sue for this auto accident in Lancaster?

Proving Fault

In order to begin the lawsuit process, you’ll first need to access proof that the driver was indeed on his phone to his employer when the crash occurred. Your attorney may be able to access phone records that state who the driver was talking to and at what time that day. The driver may also admit to the police that he was talking on his phone in order to put the blame on his employer.

Liability

If you and your lawyer gain evidence that proves the motorist who caused the accident was talking to his employer at the time, the question of liability comes into play. With the help of an experienced attorney, you can agree to launch an investigation that can help you determine if only the driver, the driver and the employer, or simply the employer could be held liable for the accident.
