Work-Related Motor Vehicle Accident Workers’ Comp Claims
Work related motor vehicle accident workers’ comp claims are a case type that Ratto Law Firm, P.C.’s team has a great deal of experience in helping our clients both to understand the process and, most importantly, win these cases.
The legal term, respondent superior, means that an employer is legally responsible for actions taken by their employees while they are conducting business under their job description.
These situations can include the following while operating a motor vehicle:
● Running Work Related Errands in a Motor Vehicle
● Driving to and from Off Site Job Locations
● Making a Delivery in a Motor Vehicle
● Travel that the Employee is Compensated by the Employer For
● Driving Another Employee for Work Related Purposes
● Operating a Company or Other Authorized Vehicle While Performing Other Job Related Tasks or Duties
One of the things we stress to anyone seeking workers’ compensation benefits is to know what the time period is in which you have to report the incident that you need to file a claim for.
While the time period you have to file may vary between employers and their individual policies, the shortest amount of time to report an incident is no longer than 24 hours. Making an incident report (and ensuring that you receive a copy of your own report immediately) is important to be certain that the facts of the situation are recalled and written down correctly.
