Injured While Driving For Work? We Can Help.
Many occupations require workers to drive. Obvious examples include truck drivers and chauffeurs, but almost any job could entail driving at some point, even if just running an errand.
For all of the dangers encountered on job sites, dangers on the road such as careless and distracted drivers are a persistent threat.
The good news? If you have been injured while driving for work-related purposes, you have the right to pursue workers’ compensation benefits to pay for your wage loss, medical bills and related expenses.
At Laurie W. Maschek, Attorney at Law, LLC, we have extensive experience handling workers’ compensation claims for clients in Slidell and throughout surrounding Louisiana communities. We are here to help you obtain full and fair compensation for the injuries you have suffered while driving for work.
Was Your Vehicle Accident Job-Related?
To qualify for workers’ compensation benefits, your accident must have occurred while you were performing job-related duties. Driving to and from work are generally not considered job tasks, but there are many duties that fit that definition, including:
- Making deliveries
- Running errands
- Driving another employee
- Driving to another job site
- Driving construction equipment
- Any driving you are being compensated for
If you were injured while driving, your employer may claim your injuries did not occur while you were on the job and are therefore not compensable. We can draw upon our in-depth knowledge of Louisiana workers’ compensation law to argue on your behalf and help you seek the workers’ compensation benefits you need and deserve.
