Injured in a Crash while Driving for Work? You May Have 2 Claims on Your Hands.

by Staff Blogger | August 12th, 2020

Most people know that when they get hurt while they’re on the job, they may be eligible to receive workers’ compensation benefits to replace their paychecks while they recover. And most people also know that those who are injured in auto accidents can file compensation claims against the drivers who hit them to get money for their accident-related expenses.

But many people don’t know that those types of compensation can be combined when the situation calls for it—namely, when someone else causes a crash while driving a work-related vehicle or while driving on company time. In Tennessee, it’s possible to pursue both a workers’ compensation claim and a personal injury claim for the same crash, but doing so requires an experienced law firm and a resourceful lawyer.
