Workplace Injuries—What to Do When You’re in a Car Accident on the Job

Share Button

There are many careers that involve driving—from truck drivers, to cable company workers, to construction—and inherently put those workers at a higher risk for being involved in a motor vehicle accident.

No matter what your job, age, or gender is, car crashes do not discriminate and can happen to anyone at any time.

Imagine you are on the clock and driving a motor vehicle when you are hit by a negligent driver—what are your options for compensation toward medical bills, wage loss, and pain and suffering?

  • Your main concern is to treat for any potential injuries from the accident.
  • The next step is to contact your employer to notify them of the incident and file and injury report if needed.
  • Lastly, you may also want to consider filing a claim against the negligent driver’s car insurance company.

As a personal injury attorney for 34 years, many a time clients will call me with questions because they are unsure about which route to go—file a car accident claim or file a work injury claim?

It may be in your best interest to file both claims in order to obtain the full compensation needed to deal with the injuries and lost wages from your car accident.

If you or a loved one was injured by a negligent driver while on the clock, call me today for your free consultation. You will need an experienced attorney on both of these legal matters.
