Car Accident Injuries – Sacramento Workers’ Compensation Lawyer
The general rule is that if a worker is a driver or passenger in a motor vehicle, and he or she is injured in an accident going to or from work, those injuries aren’t compensable under California workers’ compensation laws. What comes to issue is that California workers might otherwise be injured in motor vehicle accidents while they are “on the clock.” Some of those “on the clock” occurrences might arise when the worker is:
- Making a delivery
- Driving from job site to job site
- Using a company vehicle while performing job duties
There are many times when a driver or passenger doesn’t really realize that he or she is “on the clock,” and that injuries suffered in a motor vehicle accident might be compensable under California workers’ compensation laws. Fault doesn’t matter either. An employee might be the only person at fault for a single vehicle accident that he or she was injured in. That injury might still be compensable under California workers’ compensation laws.
