Work-Related Vehicular Accidents Lawyers
Many work-related accidents happen not in a factory or on a construction site, but on the roads. There are many jobs that require workers to get behind the wheel, for example:
- Commercial truck driver
- Fed Ex/UPS truck driver
- Car salesman
- Bus driver
- Taxi driver
You may also qualify for workers’ compensation if you are not a professional driver, but were on a work-related errand when you got in a car accident. For example, if you were driving to pick up office supplies or coffee for your co-workers when you got into an accident, you may qualify for workers’ comp. However, if you were merely driving to or from work when you were injured, you likely would not qualify. If you were injured in what you believe was a work-related vehicle accident and you’re not sure what to do next, call our Modesto work-related car accident attorneys, Law Office of Rockwell, Kelly, Duarte & Urstoeger, LLP, at 209-225-9463.
Layers Of Compensation For A Range Of Accidents
A car or truck driver injury can result from many things, from the catastrophic to the mundane, including:
- Rear-end collision
- Jackknifed tractor-trailer
- Repetitive stress injury
Unless alcohol is involved, professional drivers who are injured while driving for work are eligible for workers’ compensation. It doesn’t even matter if you, as the driver, were technically at fault. If the other driver was at fault, however, you may even be able to file a civil suit separately from the workers’ compensation case. Whatever your specific situation, you need to talk to a California lawyer dedicated to procuring appropriate financial relief through workers’ compensation so you can recover and move on with your life. We can help.
