Who Qualifies for Workers’ Compensation?


A topic that often comes up involves the ins and outs of workers compensation.

Let’s Take an Example

Say for instance you’re working for a company and your manager sends you to a separate location.  While en route to your destination you suddenly get involved in a car accident.

This of course is a workers’ compensation claim and it is your legal right to recover from your employer, since you were injured while at work. In fact, something like this is considered a pretty straight-forward case.

Workers’ Compensation Claim…Check.. Personal Injury Claim Too?

Keep in mind however that if you are hit by a car, you now also have a personal injury claim against the person who hit you.   So now you have two cases, and you are now eligible to recover more from just one case.

If you’ve been involved in an auto accident while at work, call the Law Offices of Matthew C. Hines to set up an immediate consultation with one of our attorneys.

We will guide you through the legal procedures to make sure you recover all that you’re allowed to.  We have offices in Austell, Atlanta and Gwinnett County.
