Do I Have A Personal Injury Claim Or A Workers’ Comp Claim If I Got Into A Crash While Driving On The Job?
Car crashes occur every day, especially during the morning and evening commute times. If you were in a Florida car crash while commuting to work in your own vehicle, you more than likely have a personal injury claim for your losses and damages. However, if you were running errands for your boss, driving to a meeting, making a sales call, or driving for your job, you probably have a workers’ compensation claim.
When you are involved in a collision during work hours and you were doing a work activity in a company car or your own personal vehicle, you should have a workers’ compensation claim in Florida. Especially if the crash occurred when you are in a company vehicle, you should be entitled to collect workers’ compensation benefits for your injuries and damages.
If your employer is denying your workers’ comp claim, you should find out if you have a valid workers’ comp or personal injury claim with an attorney.
