Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
It's not easy delivering toys to children worldwide in a single night. So maybe Santa's sleigh rolled a stop sign trying to save some time, and caught your car right on the rear fender. Did he stay long enough to give his insurance information? And since Santa was driving a delivery vehicle for work, how does that affect your injury claim?
Here's what you need to know if Kris Kringle crumpled your bumper:
Frozen First Steps
An accident with Santa, or any other delivery vehicle, is much like any other car accident. And your first steps after an accident are always crucial:
Deep Delivery Pockets
Being hit by a delivery vehicle can offer different legal remedies if you're injured. Not only is Santa's insurance on the hook, employers can be held liable for their employees' negligent acts. So, if one of the elves was behind the reins or Rudolph was making a delivery run, Santa and Santa Industries could be at fault. Even if the sleigh wasn't on a delivery run, if it was being used "in the course of employment," the company or employer can be sued along with the driver.
Stay safe on the roads out there this holiday season. And if Santa runs into your Chevy instead of sliding down your chimney, don't hesitate to contact an experienced car accident attorney.
