Workplace Accidents

Most workplace injuries are covered under workers' compensation insurance. However, some workplace accidents are caused by a person other than an employer, co-worker or manager, possibly allowing for compensation in addition to workers' compensation benefits.

This situation could involve a motor vehicle accident during a delivery, errand or another duty performed outside the workplace, or a traffic accident while driving or occupying a company vehicle.

Did the injuries you sustained put you in a hospital, sidelined you from your job and saddled you with financial burdens you never thought were possible?
