Can I find out if defendant was on company time?

I was rear ended by a person who was on a cell phone. She had an SUV and really creamed my car (totalled by her insurance-more than $12,500 in damages). She got to drive home while I was taken to hospital on a back board and neck brace via ambulance. Is there a way to force her to tell me if she was on company business at the time (she left the next day for a 3 day business trip). What if she left work early to get some things she needed for the business trip? Or in Ohio, is she considered 'on the clock' until she arrives at her home? She was dressed up for work, had no kiddies in car, so I suppose she wa very likely coming home from work and going to pick up kiddies. Since she has $100k of BI, I am interested to see if her employer has 'deeper pockets'. I am relatively sure my medical bills will be $50k or more (shoulder surgery, therapy, medications, recovery from infection in leg caused by the accident, etc.). The accident occurred 6 weeks ago, and my arm is still in a sling, I haven't had rotator cuff yet, so I feel very much wronged in this situation.
