  • Vehicles Duty of Care - "Safe Drivers and Safe Vehicles for ALL Business Use"

Employer Land Solicitors Clerk in Dock for Business Insurance Offence IN10!

Solicitors Allow their Clerk to Drive without Business Insurance!

A solicitor's clerk, returning to chambers in his own car, was asked by his employer to take with him a rather heavy legal volume. This was placed on the parcel shelf of the car.

During the course of the journey an emergency stop caused the book to hit the clerk on the back of the head and an accident occurred.

A successful prosecution, for driving without insurance, followed as the clerk only had SD&P Cover and he was considered to be acting on behalf of his Solicitors Partners at the time of the accident and should have had Business Insurance Class 1.


  • Did the Legal Eagles have a Duty of Care Policy Structure and company checklist for; Approved Drivers, Cars, Insurance, Servicing and Regular Inspections?
  • Did the Clerk have a Duty of Care Handbook explaining his Company Policy on the use of Vehicles on Company Business?
  • Did the Clerk know he has a Duty of Care to himself his passengers, other road users and pedestrians alike?
