On the Job Motor Vehicle Accidents
There are literally thousands of workers in Georgia who are regularly on the road performing the duties of their employment. They include:
- Police Officers
- Emergency Medical Personnel
- Truck Drivers
- Delivery Personnel
- UPS Drivers
- FedEx Drivers
- Medical Transportation Drivers
- And many others
When you get in a car accident while on the job, there are many complicated factors to consider. These accidents often result not only in workers’ compensation claims, but also third-party personal injury claims.
When your job requires you to do an excessive amount of driving, you naturally become more prone to hazards of the road. These could only have been avoided had you not been asked to drive during work hours or as a part of your job.
If you are a company driver injured in a wreck, you should know that you are still entitled to workers’ compensation benefits, even if the accident was determined to be your fault.
Filing a workers’ compensation claim after you have been physically harmed in any type of accident could greatly increase your chances of being fully compensated for the injury.
