Were you involved in an accident while driving on the job, or an on-the-job car accident caused by the negligence of another driver? If you think that your only remedy is workers' compensation, you may be wrong. You may have additional opportunities to maximize your compensation, and the Utah car accident attorneys at Flickinger Sutterfield & Boulton can help you take advantage of them.
Third-party work injury claims are personal injury claims, rather than workers' comp claims. These types of claims can be filed if your injury was caused by someone other than your employer or a coworker. Work-related car accident claims frequently involve third-party claims, simply because these accidents are often caused by other drivers.
Whether you were driving a company car or a delivery vehicle, or even your own vehicle while on a work-related errand, you can pursue a personal injury claim if you were hit by a negligent driver who is not employed by your employer.
Why is this opportunity important? The reality is that workers' compensation provides very little compensation to injured workers. It will not cover everything that you may need it to cover. Personal injury claims allow you to collect further compensation in cases of car accidents at work.
It is possible that you will have a workers' compensation claim and a personal injury claim going simultaneously because of your work-related car accident. We will make certain that these two claims are balanced, while our attorneys focus on maximizing your recovery through the personal injury claim.
