February 4, 2020– (ST. LOUIS, MO) – Motor vehicle accidents cause tens of thousands of preventable deaths and millions of injuries every year.  A portion of those incidents involve individuals driving on behalf of their employer.  In those cases, business owners may find themselves involved in serious litigation.
