​Commercial Vehicles Can Be Normal Looking Cars

The employer may be held responsible for the negligence of the employee under a theory of agency.

Determining If the Other Driver Was In A Commercial Car

​Determining if a vehicle is a commercial vehicle can occur is several ways. Often times one can look on the police report to see if the vehicle is registered under a corporation name. Another way to see if the vehicle a commercial vehicle is by looking at the name of the insurance provider. Some insurance companies only handle commercial policies. Always look for logos or decals of a business on the vehicle.
