Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello, this is Jim and welcome to JustAnswer.
I am one of the legal experts on the site and I am a dual-qualified solicitor (UK & Republic of Ireland)
Thank you for the question, I am reviewing the details now and I will aim to resolve it as quickly as possible for you.
Sorry to hear of this.
The employer is vicariously liable for the acts of an employee.
The vehicle will be insured so you would need to contact their insurer to make a claim for repairs.
I don't know if you have the vehicle reg but you mentioned the Police were involved so there will be a report which will have those details.
Please therefore perform a Motor Insurer's Database (MID) search for the insurer details on this site : https://www.askmid.com/askmidenquiry.aspx
It would be DPD's insurer liable for this as like I say, the employer is vicariously liable for any acts of negligence.
I hope this helps
