If you or your loved one was in a car accident while making a delivery for work or traveling off-site to a meeting, obtain experienced legal counsel. People injured in car accidents during working hours are entitled to workers' compensation benefits, even if the accident occurred off-site. Injured drivers may also be entitled to recover additional compensation through a personal injury claim, if a third party such as another driver caused the car accident.

Handling Work-Related Car Accidents in Manhattan
Whether you are a sales consultant, mail carrier or a social worker, your car may be your office. Even if you don't rely on your car for work, you may be entitled to workers' compensation benefits, if you were in a car accident while performing your job. This is a highly complicated area of the law. Employers may try to deny that the car accident happened during working hours. Insurance companies are also known to try and limit the amount of compensation injured workers can recover.
Our New York work injury attorneys have the skills and legal resources to prove the car accident was work related. We may incorporate witness testimony or evidence from your timecard to demonstrate the collision occurred during your working hours. Our legal team will also protect your right to secure workers' compensation benefits covering your medical expenses and lost wages for your work-related injuries, such as:
- Neck and back injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Broken bones and fractures
- Knee, shoulder and joint injuries
Frequently, you will be entitled to workers' compensation benefits and will also be eligible for a personal injury claim.
We are also committed to helping families recover compensation after losing their loved one in a work-related fatal accident. No amount of compensation can change the past, but we want families to focus on the future without worrying about covering any loose ends financially. We take every measure possible to help surviving spouses and their children secure lifetime workers' compensation benefits.
