Car Accident At Work?
We can help.
On-the-job motor vehicle accidents are responsible for the most work related deaths in the United States. In 2014, the Occupational Safety and Health Association published their annual report on work-related injuries.
The data showed that motor vehicle accidents amounted to 40% of all workplace injuries and will cost employers over $25 billion in total. This is because workers frequently spend their time driving as part of their work duties and in turn they increase their chances of being in a workplace motor vehicle accident.
Though there are efforts taken to prevent these accidents, statistically speaking they are bound to happen eventually. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration requires employers to mandate seat belt usage, ensure that all drivers have a valid driver’s license, and manage driving time to ensure drivers work regular hours and obey speed limits. Still, even with the best employer management, accidents prevail and thousands of workers are injured in on-the-job motor vehicle accidents.
If you have been injured as a result of a workplace motor vehicle accident, you are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. Performing your job duties and being injured as a result, should not leave an employee in a position where they can’t provide proper healthcare for themselves. As an employee that is covered by their employer’s insurance company, you are owed a means to pay the medical bills and payment for the time spent recovering from that workplace injury.
Many times, these insurance companies will fight your claim and use their legal power to get you to settle for less or even downright deny your claim. Left without competent representation, injured workers will struggle to recover and will endure additional financial stress to an already painful or debilitating medical situation.
