A case I was working on the other day showed the need to look at all the potential parties in the lawsuit . The basic law is in Tennessee (TN) is that a principal is responsible for the acts of his agent . What does that mean ? It means if a person is doing something for another , that person is also responsible . For example , a person runs an errand for their boss and has a car accident. The boss can also be held accountable . The terms of principal and agent can also be changed to employer and emploee . Why is this important ? In some cases there is a lack of insurance to compensate one for their injuries . If you add parties you add a pool of insurance to your case . So one must really investigate the case to determine who all the players are or might be in your car accident case .
