If your job requires you to drive to complete you duties and you are involved in a car accident, then likley you will be entitled to Georgia workers compensation benefits of medical care and if a doctor takes you out of work based upon your injuries you may also be entitled to weekly income benefits.
These matters are very fact specific but it is possible to receive workers compensation benefits from a car accident. Also, if the car accident was another driver not related to your employer, you may also have what is called a third party claim. Meaning you could have two separate distinct claims. One for workers compensation and one for the automobile accident.
Once again these matters are very fact specific so it is recomended that you contact an attorney who handles both Georgia workers’ compensatin claims and car accidents to find out what your options you have on your claim.
Be informed. Be aware. Be prepared.
