Car Accidents With Work Vans By Michael Joseph on July 02, 2011

Our New York car and truck accident lawyers have handled numerous cases involving personal injuries from a car or truck accident with a work van. Often the drivers of the vans are working off the books and the owner has a business and they try to claim that the driver was not working for them at the time of the accident. The owners of the work vans often do this to prevent their commercial liability police from being used or to insulate their corporate or business assets. Our New York accident lawyers have seen this scenario many times in the Bronx, Brooklyn and Queens. Our Westchester accident lawyers are also seeing this occur with greater frequency in White Plains, Yonkers, Port Chester, New Rochelle, Mount Vernon, Ossining, Mamaroneck and Bronxville.

Our New York truck accident lawyers have gotten past these self serving denials by showing that the driver really was working through circumstantial evidence. The New York courts have recognized that whether an employee’s acts are within the scope of employment is dependents on the particular facts of a case and that the question is ordinarily one for the jury.

Our New York car and truck accident lawyers have been able to prove that a defendant really was working where the accident occurred on a weekday during the normal business hours of the owner’s business. Our New York accident lawyers also thoroughly investigate whether the van had a the logo or sign on it and whether the driver called the boss immediately to report the accident.
