Protect Yourself After A Workplace Auto Accident
Commercial drivers have unique issues to deal with in the event that they are injured on the job. Of course, they are susceptible to all the same types of dangerous and potentially injurious accidents like any other driver — all of which are compensable in the form of workers’ compensation benefits.
That said, if a nonemployee’s negligent action causes the injury, the worker may be entitled to a third-party claim. This adds another layer of complexity and nuance to the situation — one that must be handled appropriately. Failure to address a third-party claim along with a workers’ compensation claim properly can result in financial catastrophe.
As such, it is of immense importance to partner with an experienced lawyer if you or someone close to you suffered a commercial driving accident in Macon, Georgia, or in the nearby areas.
