Negligent Entrustment

Posted on by Defensive Driving Team | in The Daily Drive

If you are a fleet manager or Vice President of Human Resources with a lot of employees driving, you better know what it means.   Essentially, if you do not have a comprehensive driver safety policy or program in place, you are leaving your company open to liability.   In most cases, punitive damages are not covered under the commercial auto insurance policy, which means to you the employer, if you have employees driving, while the damages assessed to property and employee might be covered, punitive damages possibly are not.

Essentially, anyone who has employees driving, is supplying or entrusting employees to drive company vehicles, is subject to negligent entrustment claims if the employer has not done a good job of monitoring the driver license status of the employee, the driver’s behavior and driving history and is providing on going driver safety training, assessment and management, run the risk of large punitive damage awards.

Do you have employees who use their personal vehicles to visit clients?  Do you have employees driving company vehicles?  Do you have employees family members in company vehicles?   Do your employees use company vehicles for personal use?   If the answer to any of these questions is yes, then you really need a employee driving program which focuses on company driver training and reduces your risk exposure to negligent entrustment claims.
