If you are injured in a car accident while on the job, you may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. It is important to work with an attorney who is experienced in both areas of law to ensure your rights are fully protected.
In order to file for workers’ compensation after being injured in a car accident, you must meet one of the following criteria:
- You were driving an employer-provided vehicle on company business
- You were running errands directly related to your job responsibilities
- You were on a business trip
- You were driving your own vehicle while carrying out company business
Depending on the specifics surrounding your car accident, you may be able to receive compensation through a car accident claim as well. If the car accident was caused by the negligence of another driver, it may be possible to file both a workers’ compensation claim and lawsuit seeking damages directly from the other driver. The third party lawsuit can help you address expenses not covered under workers’ compensation.
