Commercial Drivers Can Get Workers’ Comp After Traffic Accidents
If you are a delivery truck driver, bus driver or another type of professional driver and were injured on the road, you may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits even if your injury did not happen in the state of Georgia. As long as you were doing business for a Georgia employer, it generally does not matter where the accident occurred.
At The Law Office of Bryan S. Hawkins, Georgia workers’ compensation law is all we do. We know all of the ins and outs of filing, proving and appealing claims, and we offer free initial consultations. To schedule yours, please call our office in Augusta at (706) 305-1130 or send us an email using our contact form.

Were You Injured In A State Other Than Georgia?

What If I Don’t Drive For A Living But Was Injured While Driving For Work?
If you do not drive for a living, your on-the-job car accident may still qualify for compensation under the Georgia Workers’ Compensation Act. It will depend on where you were going and why. For example, if you were injured while driving during your lunch break, you may not have a workers’ compensation claim. However, if you were driving a client to lunch, you probably do.
