If you were injured in a car, truck or other vehicle accident while traveling for work, you may have many questions about your legal rights. While workers’ compensation benefits should be available, in some cases it is also important to take action against another driver who was at fault for the accident. What steps do you need to take?
Turn To An Experienced San Fernando Valley Work Vehicle Accident Attorney
Attorney Peter M. Hsiao is familiar with the many complex aspects of workers’ compensation claims arising from motor vehicle accidents. You can contact our firm for reliable guidance immediately after the crash or if you filed a claim and have a problem. We will also evaluate whether you may also have a “third-party” personal injury claim and call upon an experienced attorney proven in that area of law if needed.
Most Work-Related Auto Wrecks Justify Workers’ Compensation Claims
Generally speaking, fault for an auto accident is not a factor in whether you can collect workers’ compensation benefits. If you were driving or riding as a passenger while on the job, you should be covered. However, disputes and claim denials are common with all types of California workers’ compensation claims, and you should consult a qualified lawyer as early in the process as possible.
Peter M. Hsiao will carefully analyze your case and help you make the best possible decisions after, for example:
- An injury you suffered as a truck driver, taxi or shuttle van driver, delivery worker or anyone else who drives for a living — whether in an on-the-job vehicle accident in Los Angeles or while performing other duties such as unloading your vehicle
- An injury suffered while operating construction equipment
- Any other roadway accident that occurred while you were running work errands or otherwise “on the clock”
- An injury suffered in a motor vehicle accident outside the state of California — which may still qualify you to file a claim in California
