Were You Injured While Driving A Company Car?
If you are injured in a company car accident that occurred while you were on the job, you are entitled to benefits from our state’s workers’ compensation program. If the accident was caused by the negligence of the other driver, you may also have the right to file a personal injury claim against the other driver’s insurance company.
At Ayers, Whitlow & Dressler in Charlotte, North Carolina, our lawyers handle workers’ compensation and personal injury cases. Our experience in both areas of law enables us to coordinate your claims so you receive the maximum compensation to which you are entitled. We offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case.
Workers’ Compensation And Third-Party Claims
Motor vehicle accidents that occur on the job are covered by workers’ compensation, whether you were driving a company car or your own vehicle. Workers’ compensation provides free medical care, a weekly check to replace lost wages and certain other benefits. However, workers’ compensation benefits are limited. For example, the program does not provide any money for pain and suffering.
Workers’ compensation pays benefits regardless of fault. It is generally your only source of recovery for accidents that occur on the job, unless the accident was caused by someone other than you or your employer. If a third party was at fault and you were injured as a result, you may have a right to seek additional compensation through our civil justice system. Examples of third parties include:
- Other drivers at fault in car accidents
- Vendors or contractors working at your work site
- Manufacturers of equipment or products you use on the job
