If you suffer serious injuries in a work-related accident caused by another person, you may be entitled to compensation from two sources — the negligent party and the workers’ compensation system. This applies to accidents in company-owned vehicles as well as your own car if you were performing work-related tasks.
Powell & Denny, P.C. is a personal injury and workers’ compensation law firm. With offices in Birmingham and Huntsville, Alabama, our firm represents victims of all types of work-related car and truck accidents, including:
In a work-related car accident caused by another driver, the accident victim has both a workers’ compensation claim and a third-party claim against the other driver’s insurance company. Dual claim cases such as these, however, can become very complex.
At Powell & Denny, we work frequently with both types of claims. We understand the interactions of both types of claims and will work to maximize the total compensation you receive. As your workers’ compensation lawyer, we will seek to obtain all the benefits you are entitled to under that system. We will also press forward your claim for financial losses, pain and suffering against the insurance company for the negligent party.
There are strict deadlines for filing workers’ compensation and third-party claims. You need to act quickly to preserve your ability to claim compensation as well as evidence that will be vital to your case.
You must report the accident to your employer. But before making any statement to an insurance company representative, talk with an attorney at Powell & Denny. We can explain your rights and discuss what we can do to maximize the compensation you receive.
