Workers’ Comp for Work-Related Car Accidents
In some occupations, you may have to commute to clients or transport patients around with the assistance of a car. If your job requires any amount of driving, you are at risk of being involved in an auto accident whether you realize it or not. But, a car accident on the job is often a complex legal matter and often more difficult to comprehend than a personal accident. Determining who is responsible to compensate you for your injuries is a complicated issue, and will ultimately depend on such factors as:
- Were you driving your own car or a company car?
- Were you struck by a vehicle at a construction site or did your car strike it?
- Were you commuting to work or driving from one job site to another within a workday?
- Were you accidentally hit as a pedestrian by a car in a company parking lot?
- Were you a delivery truck driver, struck by another vehicle as you were making deliveries, and injured?
A car accident on the job can happen in a great variety of circumstances. Answers to key questions such as these can help determine whether you have a viable workers’ compensation claim. And, depending on the scenario of the accident, you may also have a third-party liability claim against the driver of the other car or another negligent party. If you have been involved in a car accident on the job and are not sure where to begin, start by reaching out to an experienced workers’ comp lawyer.
