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.

Ponton Law can help you identify the party or parties that should be held liable for the injuries that you or your loved ones have suffered.  We manage all aspects of your claim including negotiations with the other party’s attorneys.  Don’t fight alone — Ponton Law is here to support you along the way.

Slip-and-Fall Interrogatories to Defendant

If you cannot resolve a slip-and-fall injury case out of court, the plaintiff might well be required to bring a personal injury suit in civil court. If this occurs, the parties to the litigation — that is, the complainant (the injured individual) and the defendant (often the premises owner) — will disclose information about the incident and crucial components of the complainant's claim in a procedure known as "discovery." The issuance of interrogatories from one side to the other is a key discovery tool. Interrogatories are written queries, which must be answered honestly, in writing, and under oath by the receiving party ("under penalty of perjury," in Georgia). Slip-and-Fall Interrogatories To Defendant The primary concern in a slip-and-fall claim is generally if the premises owner — or the person or organization responsible for overseeing the premises — did not make sensible efforts to avoid the plaintiff's mishap. The complainant must…
