Can Business Owners File Damage Claim Against Negligent Drivers?
If your business property was damaged by a driver’s action, you can pursue a claim against them. However, beware – there’s also a possibility that the driver will counterclaim you instead! Usually, their argument would revolve around premise liability – which is when a personal injury that happens in a person’s property, is attributable to the person. No need to fear, however, if you are faced with this kind of claim if you know that the driver is the one in the wrong.
