Atlanta Workers’ Compensation Attorney – I was injured in an car wreck while going to the job, do I have two claims?

Depending on the circumstances of your work, it is possible to have a personal injury claim and a workers compensation claim. In order for this to happen you must have what is called third party liability.

The laws in Georgia, provide for what is called an exclusive remedy in workers compensation claims. What that means is, if you are injured on the job, you can not decided to file a personal injury claim against your employer, you must file a workers compensation claim. But there are occasions where you could have both a personal injury claim and a workers compensation claim.

An example would be someone, who is picked up by his employer, and they are en route to a work site, and unexpectedly get into an auto accident. As long as the at-fault party is not the employer, there exists a third party liability claim. In this example there would be a workers compensation claim and a personal injury claim.
