Advocating For Auto Accident Victims
Work-related truck and auto accidents may not often be thought of as being covered by workers’ compensation benefits. However, if a car or truck accident happens in the scope of your employment, you may still be eligible for benefits and should still speak with an experienced attorney about your rights.
At Galanti, Patti, & Winterscheidt, P.C., we have helped many people who have been injured in work-related motor vehicle accidents. We understand the difficulties that can come along with an injury on the job.
Understanding Eligibility And Injuries
Workers’ compensation benefits cover employees who have suffered injuries in auto accidents while on the job. This includes workers who:
- Drive trucks
- Are delivery drivers
- Were running errands for their employer
- Work out of their car
- Were traveling to a meeting or work activity
Car and truck accidents have the potential to result in a wide range of injuries that could leave drivers and passengers unable to return to work or to perform their normal job functions. These injuries may include:
- Head and traumatic brain injuries
- Neck and spinal cord injuries
- Back injuries
- Broken bones
- Shoulder strains, dislocations or tears
- Injuries to the legs, knees and joints
We provide personalized, knowledgeable and compassionate legal service to those who deserve help and compensation after their accidents. Whether you work out of your car or drive for work occasionally, we can help.
