Hurt In A Car Accident While Driving For Work?
Many Georgia workers are injured on the job while driving for their employer. Whether or not the accident qualifies as a workers’ compensation claim under the Georgia Workers’ Compensation Act depends on where you were going and why you were going there.
For example, if an employee on lunch break was injured while going to get lunch for him- or herself, they likely do not have a Georgia workers’ comp claim. However, if the employee was going to pick up lunch for a company banquet when they were involved in an automobile accident, they would have a claim under the Georgia Workers’ Compensation Act.
As you can imagine, there are a number of different scenarios that could have different result. If you or a loved one was involved in an automobile accident and you believe they were performing a job-related activity, please call us today to discuss your case with one of our caring and knowledgeable attorneys.
