Who is liable in an auto accident? The driver or the company he works for?

Additional Information:

I was in an auto accident on Route 20 near Marlborough. A commercial truck of a Boston based company blew through a red light and crashed into my car.  I suffered a neck injury in the accident.  I got the name of the driver and the insurance information.  Who is liable- the driver? the company or both? I already went to the doctor and am seeking representation from an auto accident lawyer.

ATTORNEY ANSWER:

Both the operator and the company would be liable for your damages if the operator was operating with knowledge of the company and for the company. Ordinarily the company would have insurance that would name both the company and provide for coverage of employees working for the company.
