Whether you drive a delivery van, are frequently on the road making sales calls, operate a taxi, drive a large commercial vehicle or are otherwise behind the wheel due to the demands of your job, you need to be aware of your options should you be involved in a motor vehicle accident while driving in the course of employment.
Most professional drivers understand that if they are in an accident, they are covered by their employer’s workers’ compensation insurance. However, you may also be able to recover additional compensation for the pain and suffering you endured through a personal injury claim.
Obtaining maximum compensation starts with looking at all your options
At Shollenberger Januzzi & Wolfe, LLP, LLP, our attorneys look to help injured workers in Pennsylvania explore all possible avenues for obtaining benefits and compensation. Of course it’s important to make sure you get the workers’ comp benefits you’re entitled to receive, but if another individual caused the accident or there were other factors outside your control that caused the wreck, we want to make sure those negligent parties are held accountable and that you are properly compensated.
Often referred to as third-party claims the lawsuit we bring on your behalf can provide you with much-needed compensation as you recover from your injuries. You may be laid up for a long period of time or be unable to enjoy many of the physical activities you previously enjoyed due to the lingering effects of your injuries. You deserve to be compensated for the pain and suffering you experienced or may still be enduring, and a lawyer who handles both workers’ comp and personal injury matters can help you obtain it.
If you drive for a living and were injured in a car crash or were operating a company vehicle and were involved in another type of accident, don’t assume your workers’ compensation benefits will cover everything.
