Work-Related Vehicle Accident Lawyers in Birmingham
Injury Attorneys Representing Victims of Work Related Vehicle Accidents Throughout Jefferson County, Alabama and Beyond
If your job involves driving, any accident — a car accident or truck accident — in your work-related vehicle may render you eligible for workers’ compensation benefits. This is true whether your vehicle is your own, or is company-owned. If the accident was not your fault, you may also be entitled to compensation from the person who caused the accident in addition to any workers’ compensation insurance you may be owed. At Allwin E. Horn, IV, P.C., we represent diverse workers who have been hurt on the road, including:
- Taxi drivers
- Bus drivers
- UPS/FedEx drivers
- Limousine drivers
- Delivery persons
- Truck drivers
Some of these injuries may be serious, especially if they involve neck and back injuries, amputations, or head and brain injuries. You may even qualify for workers’ compensation if you are not a professional driver but were injured in your vehicle while on a work errand such as getting coffee or office supplies or picking someone up at the airport.
Before you accept a settlement for a work-related vehicle injury, make sure you speak with a qualified attorney who can make sure you get all the compensation you are owed. Our experienced Birmingham, Alabama, workers’ compensation lawyers at Allwin E. Horn, IV, P.C., are ready to work with you. Call us or fill out our online contact form today!
Don’t Limit Your Recovery
In addition to any award you may be owed through workers’ compensation, you may also be eligible to file a simultaneous personal injury lawsuit if a third party was partially responsible for your injury. For example, if a mechanical failure in your vehicle contributed to your accident, you may be able to bring a lawsuit against the manufacturer in addition to your workers’ compensation claim.
If your injury was caused by an uninsured or underinsured motorist, you may be able to collect compensation from that person as well, if the costs associated with your accident are above and beyond what workers’ compensation will pay. Our office can help you to sort out the various sources of compensation available to you after a work-related vehicle accident. The sooner you start pursuing your options, the sooner we can recover any benefits you may be owed to help you heal and move forward.
