Can you file a workers' compensation claim for a car crash?

When you drive for work, it's a reality that you're exposed to hazards on the road. You're exposed to dangerous drivers, distracted pedestrians and cyclists, construction work, weather hazards and more. Since you drive for work, you have no other choice but to go out into these conditions, but they can lead to a crash that you have to struggle to recover from.

When you're hurt on the job, even if it's driving for work, you may have the opportunity to file a claim with workers' compensation. Workers' compensation will cover work-related activities, like driving for work, in most cases, even if it was your mistake that caused an accident. If it wasn't your fault, you may be able to seek workers' compensation and pursue a claim against the other party involved in the crash.

How can you avoid a crash when driving for work?

To avoid a crash, it's important that you are always focused on the road. Most states now require that you use hands-free devices if you plan to talk on the phone. Never text and drive since this takes your attention away from what's happening around you and can result in a collision.

What do you do if you are involved in a crash while driving for work?

You should seek medical attention. When you reach the hospital, you can tell your medical provider that this injury happened while you were working. You'll also want to inform your employer about your injuries so that they can begin a workers' compensation insurance claim for you and get you the compensation and coverage you need.
