Holding the Employer Liable Following a Hit-and-Run Bucks County Car Accident

If the hit-and-run driver who caused your Bucks County car accident is found and was on the job at the time of the crash you might be able to go after their employer for your damages.

 

Protect yourself

All Pennsylvania drivers should purchase uninsured motorist coverage. This type of insurance covers you in the event you are injured in a car accident where the hit-and-run driver is never located. You might also be covered if you are injured as a:

  • Passenger in another car
  • Bicyclist
  • Pedestrian

 

If the hit-and-run driver was on the job

If the driver was on the job and charged with a hit-and-run offense, you might also be able to go after their employer for your damages. However, it will likely need to be proved that the driver was acting within the “scope and course” of their job when the accident took place.
