On-the-Job Automobile Accidents
Automobile accidents are always stressful, trying ordeals. Combine that with the distress of being injured at work, and you’ve got some serious problems. Not only will you face the hassle and worry of automobile repairs and time in the hospital, but you may lose wages and face property damage problems as well. Your employer may be responsible at least in part for bearing the financial burden of your injuries and damage.
If you have been injured as a result of an on-the-job automobile accident, contact the Austin labor attorneys of The Melton Law Firm, by calling (512) 330-0017 today. Contrary to what you may expect, personal and work insurance may not cover all of the costs of your accident. It is very dependent on what these policies cover and the circumstances of your particular accident. A lawyer can help you understand your rights and what compensation you may be owed.
If your accident was caused by someone else unrelated to your business – a third party – that person’s insurance may compensate you for pain and suffering which your personal insurance or workers’ compensation doesn’t provide. This, of course, is the most desirable outcome, but you cannot always count on it. Additionally, on-the-job automobile injuries can be particularly confusing because of the assorted insurance policies that may be involved. For this reason, it’s easy to be taken advantage of.
