Car Accidents on the Job

Were You Injured in Your Work Vehicle or While Driving on Company Business?

Many workers who drive as part of the job — whether truck drivers, police officers or pizza delivery drivers − are at risk of being injured in an auto accident. Workers' comp can be an important source of compensation for these employees, but it may not be the only source.

As a skilled trial lawyer with more than 35 years of experience handling auto accident claims, Michael P. Burakoff may be able to help you pursue a third-party personal injury claim to obtain compensation above and beyond what workers' comp provides. If your car accident happened on the job and was caused by someone else, a third-party claim may be a realistic option. Examples of potential third-party liability claims include:

  • The negligence of another driver caused your accident
  • Your work vehicle had a defectively designed or manufactured component that caused the accident
  • Your work vehicle was repaired at an off-site facility and the repair work was done negligently

Finding Answers to Important Questions

On-the-job car accidents lead to serious head and brain injuries, back injuries and other trauma. You may be unable to return to work. Insurance coverage issues are complicated and frustrating. How do you know what policy covers you? Is it you employer's? Your own? The other driver's?

Finding answers to these questions and recovering maximum compensation is our goal at The Law Offices of Michael P. Burakoff, P.A. We are able to help through the workers' compensation process, but we do not stop there. If additional compensation is available through a third-party claim, we will pursue it vigorously.
