Were You Injured While Working Somewhere Other Than Your Workplace Premises?
If you have suffered an on-the-job injury while visiting or working on any property besides that of your employer, you may be entitled to compensation from the landowner in addition to your workers’ compensation benefits. If a property owner, manager or tenant breached his or her duty to maintain his or her property in a safe and usable condition, you may be able to recover against the owner for failing to make his or her property safe for visitors or workers.
Commercial truck drivers, salespeople, insurance claims adjusters and others driving for job-related purposes qualify for workers’ compensation if they are injured in an accident while driving. This may be true even if you were at fault in the accident. If you were hurt in an accident while driving on the job, it is essential to immediately notify the appropriate person at your work of a possible workers’ compensation claim and talk with our firm about your possible claim for benefits.
