Were You Injured In A Motor Vehicle While Working?
If driving is all or part of your job, you must handle any work vehicle accidents with care. Depending on the circumstances of your commercial vehicle accident, you may be able to collect workers’ compensation benefits as well as damages from a negligent third party. Recovering all the compensation you are entitled to will require help from an experienced legal team.

Do You Drive For Your Job?
We represent many people who drive for work, including:
- Truck drivers
- Delivery drivers
- Taxi drivers
- Rideshare drivers
Whether you drive a commercial vehicle or your own vehicle for work, you may be eligible for workers’ compensation and other financial damages after an accident.
Workers’ compensation benefits include all of your medical expenses related to the accident, a portion of your lost wages and, when necessary, vocational rehabilitation. These are important benefits, but they may not be enough to cover all of your losses from the work vehicle accident.
If a negligent third party such as another driver bears responsibility for the accident, you may be able to file a personal injury suit for additional financial compensation, including pain and suffering, which is not included in workers’ compensation benefits. This is especially crucial in cases involving serious or permanent injuries or in wrongful death cases.
