Car Wrecks When You Are On The Job: You Still Have Good Options
The solution to the problem of the limited compensation provided by workers compensation insurance is to make a claim against the other driver –assuming they are the one who caused the accident in the first place. If the at-fault driver has the required state-mandated liability insurance, then you have the legal right to pursue a claim against that driver (or more accurately, the driver’s liability insurance company). By making a claim against the at-fault driver’s liability insurance policy, you have the potential to receive the full compensation to which you are entitled. By making a claim, you can get receive money to compensate you for your complete lost wages, your pain and suffering, your scarring, your loss of enjoyment of life. Without making a claim, you are essentially stuck with what you get from the comp claim, which usually is far short of compensating you for your serious (and sometimes permanent) injuries.
Here at the Anderson Law Firm, we routinely handle claims where our client was hurt on the job. The comp carrier will want to be paid back the money they spent on our clients, so we also get that money from the responsible parties insurance company and then reimburse that money back to the comp carrier.
