If I Was Hit By A Commercial Vehicle Is The Employer Of The Other Driver Also Responsible?

The issue whether the employer of the other driver is responsible is a very complex legal issue where one has to determine whether the driver was an independent contractor or an employee of the other company. Therefore if he was an employee, which means that the other company had a fair amount of control over that driver the employee would be liable. If he was an independent contractor acting on his own in most cases they would not be liable.
