Whether it is for construction, pizza delivery, or anything in between, many people drive vehicles as part of their work responsibilities. Unfortunately, many of these workers end up injured as a result of a motor vehicle accident while driving on the job. A car accident that occurs during your work can result in various types of cases, all arising from the same incident. Most importantly, a worker injured in a car accident can be entitled to benefits through Worker’s Compensation as well as a personal injury lawsuit. However, the insurance carrier may be entitled to assert a lien on your eventual recovery, depending on the outcome of the case.
Although Worker’s Compensation does not provide any benefits due to pain and suffering, the treatment received from authorized medical providers is paid entirely by the worker’s compensation carrier.
If you have been injured in a car accident while working, it is important to have skilled representation for both your personal injury and workers compensation case.
