If a person is injured when struck by a commercial vehicle, is he or she allowed to sue the driver’s employer as well as the driver?

Whenever a truck driver injures another person while acting in the scope of his or her employment, the victim may sue the truck driver’s employer as well as the truck driver because the former was acting on behalf of the latter, a liability that is known as vicarious liability.

However, employers are not usually responsible for the actions of their employers if they injure another person while in transit to or from work or if they were on their own handling personal matters when causing the injury.
