Compensation for Commercial Vehicle Accident Victims
Workers who are required to operate or drive a vehicle of any sort as part of their work duties are placed in increased danger of suffering an injury on the job. Crashes involving commercial vehicles can result from a wide range of factors, including the reckless actions of other drivers and safety defects in vehicles. In the event that a worker is injured in a collision involving a company car, they may be able to file a claim under workers’ compensation in pursuit of reimbursement for their medical bills, lost wages, and rehabilitation costs.
Workers that are commonly injured in work-related vehicle accidents include:
- Food delivery drivers
- Cab drivers and chauffeurs
- Forklift drivers
- Commercial truck drivers
- Police officers
If it can be proven that the collision was caused by a negligent party other than the employer, injured workers may be able to pursue additional compensation by filing a civil claim against the responsible party. If you have been injured under similar circumstances, our attorneys can review the facts surrounding your collision and determine the most appropriate course of action to pursue.
