Please search in google with keywords "Vicarious liability" and you can find hundreds of actual cases and findings by Hon'ble judges. In simple words vicarious liability means the employer's responsibility for his employee's action. Ex: A vehicle owner engaged a driver, that driver drove negligently without a license in one way and killed two persons riding on a motorcycle.

Naturally the employer, the extent of employer's liability for his worker's actions exemptions etc., make interesting reading. Try to search and learn.
