Thank you for the question. The first thing you require to do is check your agreement with your employer by way of your employment contract. As you are employed as a driver then I would be shocked if there was not a provision in your contract in relation to accidents on company vehicles. The employment contract should provide the answer to this matter. There will likely be clauses in there which stipulate if or when a driver would be required to pay for damages such as who is liable for the accident, whether there were any beaches of the insurance terms etc. If you do not have a contract then you may wish to look at instructing a solicitor to defend the matter as it would then come down to the individual circumstances. However the very first step will be to find out what is stated in the contact of employment.
