When your car accident was work related

Things can get complicated when you've been involved in a car accident that was work related. First, it can be difficult to determine whether a car accident was work related, and depending on the type of accident you were involved with, you could be dealing with injuries and recovery needs that require compensation.

Some motor vehicle accidents result in minor injuries, such as bruising or soft tissue injuries. While these might be the most minor of injuries commonly associated with car accidents, someone with such injuries might still require some medical care or time off work to recover -- particularly if they are in a physically demanding position.

Moderate injuries that often require even more recovery time or medical intervention can include whiplash. concussions or mild to moderate injuries to the back. But some injuries move past these designations, and they are very serious or catastrophic. Brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, broken bones or complex fractures, permanent injuries or scarring and paralysis are just some issues that can be left after a severe motor vehicle accident.

If you are in such an accident, how will you pay for the care you might need during recovery? What happens if you are unable to work and can't draw your normal wage?

If you are in an accident and you are driving a company vehicle on company business, then injuries might be covered under worker's compensation plan. If you are not driving a vehicle as part of your job at the time of an accident, you might need to seek compensation from your own insurance company or from the insurance company for the driver responsible for the accident. Our firm works with you to understand the nature of any workers' compensation claim or car accident claim to help you understand how to seek compensation.
