Your Options In Work-Related Auto Accident Cases
Injuries that occur while you are traveling to or from work or running personal errands are generally not covered by Workers’ Compensation. However, if you were injured in an accident making a delivery or engaged in a work-related activity, it would be covered. Our lawyers will review your accident case without cost or obligation to determine if it is covered by Workers’ Compensation.
If you are injured in a work-related accident, you are entitled to Workers’ Compensation benefits regardless of who was at fault. These benefits include medical care, wage loss benefits and compensation for permanent injury.
If the car accident was caused by the negligence of another party, you may have the right to obtain additional compensation by filing a personal injury claim against the negligent party’s insurance company. Examples of negligent parties include:
- Another driver
- A local government or contractor responsible for a road defect
- The manufacturer of the car or truck you were driving, in the case of a manufacturing defect
