Recovering Compensation After A Car Accident On The Job
If you are injured in a car accident in Ocean or Monmouth counties or throughout New Jersey while on the job, multiple sources of financial recovery may be available. We will pursue all angles of the accident to ensure that you recover full compensation for lost wages, medical expenses, pain and suffering, and other damages.
Types of claims include:
- Workers’ compensation claims: If you were acting within the scope of your employment, you may be eligible for workers’ compensation benefits. Examples include accidents that happen while running errands for bosses, accidents occurring while delivering packages on behalf of employers and accidents that occur on business trips. Specifically, delivery truck drivers and commercial vehicle drivers may be eligible for workers’ compensation benefits.
- Negligence claims: While a work injury claim against your employer may provide compensation for medical bills and lost wages, there is typically a cap on the compensation available. When serious injuries, such as a spinal cord injury or traumatic brain injury, are involved, workers’ comp is simply not enough. Additional compensation may still be available through the negligent driver’s insurance policy or your own uninsured or underinsured insurance coverage.
Our attorneys have the experience and skill to pursue both types of injury claims for workers injured in car accidents on the job.
