I was leaving my place of employment here in Michigan when a truck came speeding up the driveway.
ai was forced to go off to the side in which I hit one of the huge rocks on the side of the driveway. These rocks are lined up and down the driveway. I feel that the posted 10 mph speed sign was not effective. Our management has commented many times about slowing down in the parking areas. The rocks are very much a hazard. If I had not gone to the side we would have crashed. Is the business I work for responsible for these damages?
I don't see that your employer has any liability here.
The other driver would appear to be the at-fault party here for speeding on your employer's property when the speed limit was clearly posted. This would be like trying to blame the state if someone drove you off the highway into a guardrail.
If you were injured, your best bet to obtain the maximum settlement amount in this case is to ensure you have completed the necessary medical treatment and consult with an attorney in your area to obtain a more specific answer and get all of your legal options before deciding what to do. The attorney will also investigate all available coverages to ensure you have the maximum amount of coverage available to you. You may have some additional coverages on your own auto policy that can assist you of which you may not have been aware. You can use the "Find a Lawyer" link at the top of this page for names of attorneys in your area. Most offer a free consultation and work on a contingency fee basis, so you won’t have to pay anything up front.
