Workers' compensation benefits are available for people injured while working, including people who drive as part of their job. When these injured workers suffer severe injuries in a work-related car accident, compensation may be available through a personal injury claim against any third parties that had a part in causing the accident. This is in addition to workers' compensation benefits.
It is important to work with attorneys experienced at handling both workers' compensation benefits claims and personal injury cases, in order to receive the maximum possible compensation for your injuries. The aggressive lawyers at The Walthew Law Firm have years of experience handling both workers' compensation and personal injury cases for residents of Western Washington who have been injured in a work-related car accident.
To recover the compensation and benefits to which you are entitled, you need proactive, dedicated legal representation from attorneys with a proven record of success. Contact our Seattle and Everett work-related car accidents lawyers at 206-812-2997 or toll free at 888-534-5255.
Bellevue Car Accident Workers' Compensation Lawyers
Workers' compensation statutes cover car accidents that occur while driving for work, entitling injured workers to benefits that compensate for:
- Income and medical benefits
- Costs of medical treatment, rehabilitation and health care
- Permanent total disability
- Permanent partial disability
- Death benefits for the family of a worker killed in a work-related accident
A workers' comp claim provides immediate benefits because an injured employee cannot file a personal injury claim against his or her employer. The injured worker may be entitled to file a third-party liability claim against someone else who contributed to the cause of the accident. This might be the negligent driver of the other vehicle or the manufacturer of defective auto parts.
Our attorneys have years of experience efficiently handling these complex cases. We have a proven record of successfully obtaining the compensation our clients need and deserve.
