Q I was hurt in a Virginia car accident. The driver of the other car caused the collision and was working at the time of the collision. Is his employer responsible to compensate me for my injuries?
The quick answer is yes, the employer of that caused the collision is reponsible for its employees and must compensate you for your injuries so long as the driver/employee was within the scope of his employment.
For example if the employee was driving from one work site to the next as part of his job, he is most likely in the scope of his employment. If on the other hand the employee is skips out of work to drive to a movie, then he probably is not within the scope of his employment.
