Generally, yes. If they have employees out there and they’re doing their job and they’re doing what they’re supposed to be doing, then the employer will be responsible if their employee causes an accident. If an employee goes out there and it’s completely outside the scope of what he should be doing and that sort of thing, then an employer may escape responsibility under those circumstances, but generally, the answer is yes.
