Workers’ Comp and Injury Claims for On-the-job Car Crashes

Police investigation can help BOTH the car crash case AND the workers comp claim
Car & truck crashes on the job can result in BOTH a Workers Comp claim AND a Personal Injury case if the other driver’s unsafe actions &/or decisions caused your injuries

According to local news reports, Virginia State Police reported more than 600 traffic crashes in the state over the 2014 Labor Day Weekend.  Thousands of drivers were also cited for such infractions as speeding, reckless driving, drunk driving, safety belt violations, and child safety seat violations.

Accidents do happen and people do get injured, but sometimes — as in the case of a reckless, drunk, distracted, or speeding motorist — someone can and should be held responsible for damages and injuries that arise from a motor vehicle accident.

If you are involved in a car crash that leaves you seriously injured, and another person is at fault for the accident, you may have a viable lawsuit against the responsible party.

Furthermore, if you are injured in a car crash while performing the duties of your job, you could have not one, but two cases — an injury case AND a workers’ compensation case.  The best on-the-job car and truck accident lawyers can get workers’ compensation benefits started quickly so that your medical bills, prescriptions, travel expenses, lost wages, etc. are paid right away.  Then, once the personal injury case reaches settlement or verdict, the employer can be paid back.
