What Do You Do After A Car Accident At Work?
A car accident can be anything from a minor inconvenience to a devastating, life-altering event; yet alone having it happen while you are at work. There are many complicated factors after an work-related car accident, including coordinating your medical care, handling damage to your vehicle or a company vehicle and bringing a claim against the other driver.
These workers’ compensation cases can be complex. It is important to work with lawyers who understand the complex issues involved in personal injury and workers’ compensation cases. For years, people in Shelbyville, Frankfort and across Kentucky have placed their trust in the attorneys of Robinson Salyers, PLLC, to handle challenging work-injury cases.
The Unique Legal Challenges Involved In These Work Accident Cases
If you are injured in a car accident while on-the-job, you can bring a workers’ compensation claim. This is not surprising, since your injury occurred while at work. However, since the person responsible for the accident is not your employer, you can also bring a personal injury claim against the negligent driver.
This is a major benefit, as you can recover the medical benefits and wage benefits in a workers’ compensation case, as well as damages for pain and suffering, and other wage loss benefits in a personal injury case.
At Robinson Salyers, PLLC, we have extensive experience handling both workers’ compensation and personal injury cases. John Christopher Robinson has taken on personal injury cases, first representing insurance companies early in his career and now solely injured people. Benjamin M. Salyers has practiced workers’ compensation law since 2001. Together, we make a formidable team that gives you every opportunity for success in both parts of your case.
