With 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.
