Your rights after a work-related vehicle accident

A car accident can change your life in an instant, and some Oklahoma victims may find that they never fully recover from their physical and emotional injuries. The aftermath of an accident can truly be overwhelming, especially if you were in a work vehicle at the time of your crash.

As you navigate post-accident life, you may learn that, unfortunately, neither your insurance company nor your employer shares a genuine concern for your full recovery and long-term interests. No matter the circumstances surrounding the collision, you would be wise to seek legal assistance regarding a potential personal injury claim.

What should you do next?

After any type of accident, regardless of the type of vehicles involved, it is important to carefully document the accident scene. Some of the ways that you can protect yourself after a crash are as follows:

  • Take pictures of the accident scene
  • Seek medical help as needed
  • Get contact information from witnesses
  • Contact an attorney as soon as possible

Insurance companies are committed to protecting their own interests, which means that you may find it hard to secure the money you need for medical treatment and other losses. However, with the right legal support, it is possible to fight back after a work-related vehicle accident. Your attorney can protect your interests by doing the following:

  • Gathering important evidence related to the accident
  • Speaking to witnesses
  • Dealing with insurance claims
  • Navigating any legal complications
  • Ensuring that you have necessary medical care
  • Working with experts to establish a fair amount of compensation

Workers injured in a car accident deserve a full and fair recovery, even if they were not on the job site or in the office at the time of the incident.

Workers' compensation versus personal injury

If you suffered injuries in an accident while driving a vehicle for work purposes, you have the right to file a personal injury claim. It may also be appropriate to file a workers' compensation claim. The options available to you will depend on the circumstances of your individual case, but by working with an experienced attorney, you can maximize the benefits and restitution to which you have a rightful claim.

A personal injury claim cannot reverse what happened to you, but it can help you confront accident-related expenses, such as medical bills, and expected recovery needs in the future.
