We Seek Maximum Recovery For Work-Related Motor Vehicle Accidents
If you were injured in an auto accident that happened on the job, you may have both a workers’ compensation claim and a personal injury case. By filing a personal injury lawsuit, you can recover money for damages such as pain and suffering, which aren’t covered by workers’ compensation.
At Mayer & Associates, P.C., our workers’ compensation attorney handles both workers’ compensation and auto accident cases in Missouri and Kansas. We offer a free initial consultation to explain your options after a work-related auto accident.
When is an auto accident covered by workers’ compensation?
You are entitled to workers’ compensation if you were driving in the course of your employment. Examples include:
- Driving to a meeting
- Delivering products to a customer
- Traveling on company business
- Driving to a required work outing
Accidents that happen during your normal commute between your home and your regular place of employment are not covered by workers’ compensation.
What benefits can I receive from workers’ compensation?
Workers’ compensation provides benefits such as the full cost of medical care and a percentage of lost wages regardless of who was at fault.
When do I have a personal injury case?
You may have a personal injury case if the accident was caused by someone else’s negligence. If the other driver was at fault, you can sue their insurance company.
What compensation can I receive from a personal injury lawsuit?
You can recover compensation for losses not covered by workers’ compensation, such as pain and suffering, and loss of earnings that were not covered by workers’ compensation. Our Kansas City personal injury lawyer will maximize your recovery from both sources.
