Vicarious liability

Vicarious liability exists when one party is legally responsible for the actions of another party. Vicarious liability usually applies in the case of work accident claims.

By law, an employer is responsible for compensating an injured worker if they were injured while doing their job.

Vicarious liability also applies whether the worker was injured by negligent co-worker or by a member of the public.
