Not all on-the-job injuries happen at a business. For many workers, the roads are a part of their place of work. For commercial drivers and truckers, the main risk of injury may be motor vehicle accidents. These drivers spend a huge portion of their daily lives on the road facing the same risks of accidents that everyone else faces just for the length of their daily commute.
Commercial drivers and truckers who have been seriously injured in an accident typically have two sources of compensation to help them face the challenges of their injuries:
- Workers' compensation — If a driver was injured while driving as part of performing his or her work duties, the employer's workers' compensation insurance provider is obligated to provide benefits, including medical coverage and lost wage replacement benefits.
- Third-party liability — Injured drivers can also pursue compensation from the driver who caused the accident they were injured in. The other driver is referred to as a third party. Third-party liability is pursued like any other personal injury claim. Workers' compensation benefits and third-party benefits may be pursued together, or independently of each other.
It is important to secure the representation of an attorney who is able to provide effective representation on both the workers' compensation and third-party liability aspects of an accident that left a commercial driver or trucker injured.
