Work-Related Auto Accident Injuries
A serious accident can cause bodily harm of a catastrophic magnitude. These types of injuries can prevent you from going back to work and earning an income.
Such injuries include:
Workers’ compensation and personal injury lawsuits are designed to help you get the benefits you need to replace the wages you lose and to pay for your medical expenses and for rehabilitative services to get you back to work. If you were acting in the scope of your occupation when the auto accident occurred, you may be entitled to workers’ comp benefits in addition to any compensation available through a third-party negligence claim against the at-fault driver.
