Most of the time, if you are injured while you are working – whether technically on-the-job or performing a duty within the course and scope of your employment – you are covered by your employer’s workers comp policy.
But did you know that you might be able to recover additional compensation on top of any money you recover from your worker’s comp settlement?
If you were injured in a Dallas-Fort Worth car accident either as a passenger or as the not-at-fault driver, then it may be possible to make an additional and entirely separate personal injury claim against the personal auto liability insurance policy of the negligent driver who caused your wreck.
Why should I make an extra claim?
Workers comp only covers the cost of your accident-related medical care and a percentage of any lost wages missed as a result of your injury and recovery period. By making an additional claim for damages against the at-fault driver, you can recover additional damages to make up for lost earning, as well as compensation for intangible effects of being injured – such as the pain, suffering, and loss of enjoyment of life that being injured has caused you.
