What Happens If You Are Injured A Company Vehicle?
If you were injured in a car or truck accident on the job, it is critical that you get in touch with an experienced personal injury lawyer in Georgia as soon as possible. You need to ensure that you secure full workers’ compensation benefits and that your compensation is not limited.
Was another party at fault in your accident? Your injury compensation may not be limited to workers’ compensation benefits. You may be able to take legal action against another driver or even an auto part manufacturer whose defective product may have contributed tothe accident.
You Might Deserve Additional Compensation Beyond Workers’ Compensation Benefits
Company vehicle car wrecks caused by the negligence of another person or company are not substantially different from standard personal injury car accident situations. When you are seriously injured, you need an advocate who knows how to protect your rights and thoroughly investigate the cause(s) of your wreck.
Recovering workers’ compensation benefits does not bar you from seeking additional compensation from the at-fault driver’s insurance company if you were injured while driving a company vehicle. However, don’t count on the insurance company. Insurance adjusters and other representatives will work to diminish your claim and may tell you that you don’t have a case. Only we will know if you have a personal injury case.
