Getting Compensation After A Work-Related Motor Vehicle Accident
If driving a vehicle is part of your job, chances are high that you may one day get into an accident. A careless driver could cause a collision. A mechanical failure might lead to a crash. Bad weather or poorly designed roads could create dangerous driving conditions.
Regardless of who was at fault, if you were injured in a work-related vehicle accident, you may be entitled to benefits through workers’ compensation. There’s no need to shoulder the tremendous financial burden of an accident on your own. Getting the compensation you deserve can help make the road ahead easier.
What you can get: As an employee, you may be eligible for medical coverage, wage replacement, physical therapy, rehabilitation and other injury-related expenses — all through workers’ comp.
What If Someone Else’s Negligence Contributed To The Accident?
In most cases, you can’t directly sue your employer for a job-related injury. But if someone else — such as another driver, a vehicle inspector or manufacturer, or other third party — contributed to your accident, you may be able to bring a personal injury claim against them. This type of claim could open the door to additional compensation such as damages for pain and suffering.
