Can the Company That Owns the Courtesy Car Service be Held Liable for the Injuries Caused by Its Drivers?

Companies that hire dangerous or negligent drivers should be held liable when those drivers cause harm to others.  If you used a courtesy car service and were injured by the driver’s careless or reckless driving, the company that hired him or her may also be liable.

Courtesy car service companies should conduct background checks on all of their drivers to help ensure the safety of passengers.  If those companies fail to conduct background checks or if they choose to hire high risk drivers, then they should be held accountable when those drivers cause harm to others.  Furthermore, if a driver shows the courtesy car company that he or she tends to drive recklessly and the company chooses to retain the driver and an accident occurs, the company should be held responsible.
