Many companies require their employees to drive or be transported to work locations as part of their job responsibilities. Some employers actually focus their services based on the ability to move their staff for place to place, such as traveling nurse teams. But, when these employees are injured in a mishap along the way, cases can be complicated when the insurance providers or employers want to contest workers comp claims. Not only can standard auto accident liability apply, but workers compensation claims could be included in the overall financial recovery scenario for injured victims. This is when it is imperative for injured workers to contact an experienced legal professional like attorney Bryan Boyack at Boyack Law Group to keep the responsible parties honest.
When Workers Comp Can Apply
Many workers compensation claims are based on whether or not the injured employee was actually on duty when an injury occurs. Sometimes workers comp can apply even when the worker is not on the clock. The details of the transportation arrangement can matter significantly. If the injured victim is in transit in designated company rolling stock, then it is highly probable that the claim is valid. Workers who work strictly on a time clock and are responsible for their own transportation to work could be denied a workers comp claim in many instances, and especially when they do not have legal counsel.
What an Attorney Can Do
Having attorney Bryan Boyack handling your claim means that you will have a legal professional who is experienced in both workers compensation and personal injury law. Not only will he work diligently in securing any benefits available through a workers compensation claim, he can also pursue damages from all negligent actors who may have contributed to causing the injury. While financial recovery for general damages related to long-term impact is not allowed in a workers compensation claim, there could be general damage recovery available in the accident claim. This is vital when the injury is serious and will have lasting affects or end in death.
Never assume because you were not necessarily on the time clock that an accident injury during commuting to work does not qualify for workers compensation. Material case factors matter. Nevada residents should always call attorney Bryan Boyack at Boyack Law Group for comprehensive legal representation.
