Auto Accidents while at work
 

If you are injured in an auto accident while driving for work, you have more than a workers’ compensation claim.

Auto Accidents While at Work –If you are injured in an car accident while driving for work, you may have more than a workers’ compensation claim. If you are injured by the fault of someone other than your employer or a co-worker, you may also have a third party claim against the person or business that is responsible for your injuries. Your workers’ compensation insurer will be the primary responsible party and will pay your medical bills and wage loss.

It can be very confusing. Sometimes the insurance company for the person who caused your injuries will want to take a statement from you or have you sign a medical authorization – which you should not do without getting legal advice.

Don’t settle your personal injury claim before your workers’ compensation claim is closed. Your workers’ compensation benefits will have to be reimbursed from your personal injury settlement.

It is our job to protect and take care of you. No matter how nice an adjuster is, and many of them are, their primary job is to look after their employer. We take charge of the legal hassles so you can focus on getting better. The insurance companies will be calling us, not you. If you have questions or concerns, you call us and we will help you resolve them.
