Orlando Accident While Driving for Work

Orlando Accident While Driving for Work

Many people do not realize that when they are injured in an accident while driving for work, there are potentially multiple claims that can, and must, be brought, including a Florida Workers’ Compensation claim.

Typically, your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance is primarily responsible for paying for your injuries and lost wages, regardless of who was at-fault for the accident. As such, you normally must bring a claim under workers’ compensation, whether you want to or not. Then, if it is determined that someone else was at-fault for the accident, the workers’ compensation insurance company has a right to be reimbursed from other insurance companies, which can include the at-fault party and/or that person’s insurance company or even your own insurance company.

In a situation where you are in an accident while driving for work, it is important to hire, or at least consult with, an experienced attorney who can navigate you through the complicated laws. In fact, the workers’ compensation system in Florida is one of the most confusing and difficult areas under the law. In addition to providing guidance, a lawyer will be able to handle the reimbursement rights (a.k.a. subrogation rights) related to the potential various coverages, which may include personal injury protection coverage, bodily injury coverage, uninsured motorist coverage, and commercial liability coverage.

Orlando Auto Accident Attorneys Who Fight for Their Clients

We will work diligently to ensure that the negligent parties are held accountable and that you or your loved one receives the maximum amount of compensation for your injuries. Some personal injury lawyers follow a cookie-cutter formula and rush to a settlement so they can recover their share. We recognize there are multiple layers to these types of personal injury cases, and we take the time to examine every avenue of recovery. We routinely discover methods to stretch an insurance policy in order to maximize the amount that our clients collect.

We attempt to resolve each case as quickly as possible, but we prepare each case as if it will go to trial, and we are prepared to argue it in court if it’s in a client’s best interest.
