Car Accident While On The Job -- California

If you are injured in a car accident while on the job, you may be entitled to workers' compensation. If the accident was caused by the negligence of another party, you may be entitled to additional compensation by filing a personal injury lawsuit against the insurance company of the other party.

At the Law Offices of William W. Green & Associates, our lawyers will work hard to help you recover the full compensation you deserve from all sources for your work-related car accident. Our lawyers represent car accident victims in Newport Beach, Anaheim and other communities in Orange County, California.

Who's Responsible For My Car Accident Injury?

As long as the car accident occurs while you are on the job, you are entitled to workers' compensation regardless of who was at fault. Only those accidents that occur while you are fulfilling your job duties count as "on the job." Accidents that happen while you are commuting to and from work are not covered by workers' compensation.

Workers' compensation provides medical care and disability benefits for as long as you are unable to perform your job duties due to your injury. However, workers' compensation does not provide full wage replacement, nor does it pay you anything for noneconomic damages such as pain and suffering. If the accident was caused by someone else, you can seek full compensation for everything you have lost by filing a personal injury lawsuit against the negligent party. Examples of negligent parties include:

  • Other drivers
  • Road construction companies or municipalities responsible for defective road conditions
  • Auto manufacturers, if a vehicle defect caused your injury

Our lawyers will coordinate your workers' compensation and personal injury cases so you receive the maximum compensation from all sources.
