Commercial Vehicles, Van Cases in Jacksonville

In personal injury cases involving crashes with commercial vehicles or vans, it is important to always remember that under Florida law, both the driver and the owner of the vehicle that hit you or your family can be held liable under Florida law. This is because of “vicarious liability” (also known as “respondeat superior”) that will put the employer or hiring company in the place of their negligent employee and make them liable for any hiring or entrustment decisions they made when they chose the commercial vehicle or van’s driver.

However, some companies now will try to move around this part of the law by making their drivers not employees, but “independent contractors” (which are different under Florida law and may not be subject to “respondeat superior”). Jacksonville Florida attorney Brett Hastings has experience with these commercial vehicle and van cases and can help you pursue compensation from both parties for your injuries and loss.
