Larimer County Job Related Car Accident Workers Comp Lawyers

Larimer County Job Related Car Accident Workers Comp Lawyers

Attorneys for Victims of On-the-Job Truck Accidents in Weld County and Boulder County

In the state of Colorado, you may be eligible to collect workers’ compensation benefits if you are in injured in an auto accident while at work. Depending on the nature and the extent of your injuries, you could receive compensation for your medical expenses, lost wages, vocational retraining, and other considerations.

At Hoggatt Law Office, P.C., we understand that the Colorado workers’ compensation system is designed to protect injured workers and to help them at a difficult time. When the system does not work properly, however, you need an experienced workers’ compensation attorney on your side. If your work-related vehicle accident claim has been denied or you are being ignored by your employer or an insurance company, our team is ready and willing to help.

When Does an Auto Accident Fall Under Workers’ Compensation?

Under the Colorado Workers’ Compensation Act, workers’ compensation is intended to cover injuries that occur when an “employee is performing service arising out of and in the course of the employee’s employment.” This includes injuries that occur as the result of traffic accidents for an employee who is doing his or her job. Employees who are most at risk for an on-the-job auto accident are those who spend a significant portion of their workday driving, including:

  • Commercial truck drivers;
  • Food delivery drivers;
  • Mail and package delivery drivers;
  • Police officers;
  • Firefighters;
  • Emergency medical technicians;
  • Bus drivers; and
  • Many others.

It is important to remember, however, that workers’ compensation coverage generally extends to any employee who drives while doing their job. For example, if your employer asks you to go to the bank to make a deposit for the business, and you are injured in an accident on the way back, you would be eligible for workers’ compensation benefits in most cases—even if you were technically at fault for the accident.

Putting the Pieces Together

If you have been injured in a vehicle accident while on the job, it is important to report the accident to your employer immediately. Failure to do so could result in your workers’ compensation being denied. An experienced workers’ compensation attorney at Hoggatt Law Office, P.C. can help you take the necessary steps so that your rights are fully protected. We can also assist you in seeking the best possible medical care without jeopardizing your benefits.

In some cases, you may be able to file both a workers’ compensation claim with your employer as well as a personal injury claim against the party or parties who caused the crash. Our attorneys are skilled in both areas, and we are equipped to help you get the maximum compensation available under the law.
