Injured on the Job in a Car Accident
When you are in a car accident while on the job and you are injured, you are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. This includes taking care of medical bills, lost earnings and other considerations of the employee.
If you are injured in the car accident while working, the law says that your employer is responsible for your actions and injuries. So, your injuries would be covered if you are in the process of a delivery, driving between job sites, or simply operating the company car in order to accomplish your job duties.
