Common Injuries Resulting from Vehicle-Related Accidents at Work

Vehicle-related accidents at work can lead to a range of injuries, including:

  • Whiplash and Neck Injuries
  • Back and Spinal Cord Injuries
  • Traumatic Head and Brain Injuries
  • Broken Bones and Fractures
  • Crush Wounds
  • Missing Limbs
  • Organ and Lung Damage

It’s no surprise that any accident involving a vehicle can cause serious and even catastrophic injuries. Most injuries from vehicle-related accidents at work require ongoing medical attention and people who sustain them might be unable to work. The good news is that you can rely on our skilled work injury attorneys to develop the best possible strategy for your case and then work diligently to secure the compensation you deserve.

What Damages Can You Seek in a Workplace Vehicle Accident Case?

If you’ve been injured in a workplace vehicle accident, you may be eligible to seek various forms of compensation, including medical expenses and lost wages. In some instances, cases might be worth even more if you pursue a workers’ compensation claim and third-party personal injury claim. Personal injury claim allows compensation for pain and suffering and other damages that are not covered by workers’ comp. This option may be available if your vehicle accident was caused by a third party, such as another driver or the manufacturer of a defective vehicle or part. Our experienced lawyers will assess the unique circumstances of your case to determine the best approach to obtain all the compensation that you are entitled to.

Steps Should You Take After Suffering a Vehicle-Related Accident at Work

After a workplace vehicle accident, it’s essential to take specific steps to protect your legal rights. Here’s what you should do:

  • Seek medical attention promptly.
  • Report the accident to your employer or supervisor as soon as possible.
  • If possible, document the scene by taking photos and obtaining contact information of any witnesses.
  • Keep detailed records of your medical treatments, expenses, missed workdays, and any communication with your employer regarding your workplace vehicle accident.
  • Contact an experienced work injury lawyer to understand your legal rights and options.

This last step is crucial, as insurance companies often provide less compensation than you may be entitled to. As your work injury lawyers, Perona, Langer, Beck and Harrison will stand beside you every step of the way, making sure you receive the compensation you are entitled to.
