Lancaster's Work Car Accident Attorney Aggressively Pursues Maximum Compensation For Those Injured On The Job

If a portion of your job requires you to drive a work vehicle, that is a company-issued car, van or truck, then your employer likely has insurance to cover that vehicle  — and you — in the case of an accident. If you are driving a work vehicle and get into a work car or truck accident of any kind, there are steps you should take to ensure everything is documented and that you are covered.

  1. Call the police so they can file an accident report
  2. Get checked by a doctor so there are medical records
  3. Notify your supervisor and/or Employer
  4. Consult with an injury lawyer at Georgelis Injury Law Firm right away!

What Will my Employer Cover if I’m in an Accident While Driving a Work Vehicle?

Employers are required to have auto insurance coverage as well as workers’ compensation insurance coverage. The auto insurance would cover any damage to the work vehicle itself as well as damage to the other vehicle involved in the accident — including the other driver, depending on the nature of the accident.

If you are involved in an accident while operating a work vehicle, you may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits that would potentially cover your medical expenses as well as any wage loss. The way the insurance operates is dependent on whether or not you are engaged in your work duties at the time of the accident or if the accident occurs outside the scope of your employment.

Is There a Chance my Employer or the Insurance Company Will Not Cover an Accident in a Work Vehicle?

The short answer is yes. Unfortunately, in any kind of accident, insurance companies and employers will do whatever they can to limit liability and/or to avoid financial exposure, i.e., paying you benefits. This is why it is important to consult with an injury attorney early on in the process to ensure that the insurance carrier and/or employer does not try to take advantage of you.
