Workers' compensation benefits are available for people who are 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, in addition to worker's compensation benefits, compensation may be available through a personal injury claim against any third parties that had a part in causing the accident.
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 hardworking 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 work-related car accidents lawyers at 206-812-2997 or toll free at 888-534-5255.
Bellevue Car Accident Workers' Compensation Lawyers
Car accidents that occur while driving for work are covered by workers' compensation statutes, entitling injured workers to benefits that are intended to 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
These benefits are intended to be 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 any third parties that contributed to the cause of the accident, including 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 and a proven record of successfully obtaining the compensation our clients need and deserve.
