If you are injured in a work-related car accident, you may have two potential sources of compensation.
If the accident happened on the job, you are entitled to benefits from workers’ compensation regardless of who was at fault. “On the job” does not include your daily commute, but it does cover driving that you do on the job such as making deliveries, driving to meet a customer or driving to a work event.
If someone else was at fault for causing the accident, you may also have a personal injury claim against that driver and his or her insurance company.
Here at Goodwin Como, P.C., in Uniontown, Pennsylvania, our lawyers can help you obtain the compensation you deserve from all sources.
Can You Use Both?
While you cannot collect twice for the same loss, you can file a personal injury lawsuit for any damages not covered by workers’ compensation.
Workers’ compensation benefits are limited. For example, workers’ compensation does not replace all your lost wages or pay for your pain and suffering, which may be the largest component of a personal injury award.
Our goal will be to help you seek the maximum compensation you deserve.
