car accidents as a leading cause of death in our country, it hardly comes as a surprise
that they have also consistently been the leading cause of work-related
fatalities. Suffering an injury from a vehicle accident while driving for your job
is a "grey area" of the law; while you will almost certainly
collect damages that will pay some portion of lost wages and cover your
basic medical expenses, you may be entitled to more compensation. Depending
on the specific circumstances of your case, you may be able to seek compensation
from your own car insurance company or the other driver's policy.
If the cause of the accident was a defective auto part, you could also
potentially collect damages from the manufacturer. However, all of this
must be done in conjunction with your workers' compensation insurance
claim; if not, you could risk inadvertently forfeiting your right to recover
damages from certain sources.
