On-The-Job Vehicle Accidents

A serious on-the-job car, truck or other vehicle accident can be extremely traumatic. It may also raise some difficult legal issues. Does workers compensation coverage apply? What if you were hit by a reckless or negligent driver who was clearly at fault?

If your injuries will cause you to miss substantial work time, you can very likely get your medical treatment paid for and a portion of your lost income by filing a workers compensation claim. Even if you have another type of claim, it may be critical to pursue this option effectively before settling with any other party. At Smith & Griffith, LLP, you can count on personal attention from a lawyer equipped to handle all aspects of your case.

If You Were Injured While Driving For Work, Fault May Not Be An Issue

Anderson car accidents attorney John P. Griffith has helped numerous people injured on South Carolina roadways, in vehicle accidents on construction sites or running work errands, and under other circumstances maximize their financial compensation. Essential considerations in your case may include:

  • You are likely covered by workers compensation insurance even if the crash was judged to be your fault - for losing control of the vehicle or running a red light, for example.
  • As with any other work comp claim, problems that demand experienced legal counsel may arise, such as an outright claim denial, payment delays or wrongful termination for filing your claim.
  • You may have a valid personal injury claim against a negligent, at-fault driver in addition to a valid workers comp claim. Mr. Griffith can represent you on both the workers compensation claim and the auto accident claim to ensure that you receive the benefit of both claims.
  • Making certain your workers compensation claim is being handled properly before settling with another insurance company can be critical for protecting your ability to get quality medical treatment and bills paid on time. If your claims are handled incorrectly, you may lose the right to have your medical expenses, lost wages, and permanent impairment/disability paid for under workers compensation.

Whatever type of legal representation your case requires, John P. Griffith is an excellent resource. He applies extensive knowledge gained as a former insurance adjuster as well as his many years of experience resolving complex workers compensation concerns in our clients' favor.
