Traffic accidents are a widespread cause of work-related injuries nationwide. Those who drive for a living – such as truck drivers, delivery workers and couriers – face a higher risk of accidents due to the sheer volume of hours they spend on the road day after day. But even those who only occasionally drive for work-related activities can end up getting into an accident.
Workers’ compensation provides coverage for employees who get injured in traffic accidents while on the job. You may also qualify for compensation if you were injured while driving for work-related purposes, even if your normal job duties don’t involve driving. Generally, however, simply driving to or from work is not considered job-related.
Whether you were involved in a major or minor accident, it is critical to seek medical attention from a doctor experienced in workers’ compensation. Even seemingly minor accidents can result in major injuries. At the Law Office of Morrin & Sands PLLC, our office can connect you with a trusted medical provider.
