We wasn’t on the job. A employee had used the truck over the weekend while we was off. He had picked me up Sunday to head back to work.
A: You will have claims for negligence against the driver of the vehicle that hit your vehicle. If the driver was on a frolic and not authorized to drive truck there maybe some issues, however, you should probably still be able to get PIP benefits or Assigned Claims benefits. You should consult a lawyer and make demands upon the persons at fault.
