Companies employ drivers for a variety of reasons – sales and marketing personnel, delivery people, campus security and others. These people represent a potentially huge liability issue for any company if they make even a simple mistake.
Recently, a jury awarded a Texas woman $22 million in damages after a Coca-Cola marketing employee broadsided her car at an intersection. The Coca-Cola employee was talking on her phone when she crashed. $10 million of the verdict was punitive damages for Coca-Cola.
