You May Have Two Claims If You Were Injured While Driving A Company Car

Listen as Florida attorney Charlie Draper explains why you could be entitled to two claims if you had an auto accident while driving your company’s car.
 
If you were involved in an auto accident that was not your fault and you were driving the car of your company, then you could be entitled to two different claims. This is because your employer’s insurance carrier will have to pay all of your medical bills and treatment related to the injuries caused by this work related accident.
 
Keep in mind that if you miss work for 7 days as a consequence of your injuries you are also entitled to two-thirds of your average weekly gross wages for a certain period of time. On the other hand, if you sustained a threshold injury, you could have the right to claim monetary compensation against the other driver.
 
In Florida, the threshold injury is defined as having one of the following features:
 
  1. Significant and permanent loss of an important bodily function
  2. Permanent injury within a reasonable degree of medical probability
  3. Permanent or significant scarring or disfigurement
  4. Death
It is important to note that if you do claim money against the other driver, there is going to be a workers’ compensation lien. Watch the video to learn more.

Testimonials

I was referred to Draper Law by my father in-law after being hit from behind in an auto accident. I didn't realize, at the time, what an important decision I was making by hiring a personal injury attorney to represent me. Charles Draper took the time to explain the process and what I could expect. His professional team was there for me every step of the way through a long, and often complicated, legal experience. I just want to express my sincerest gratitude for all the efforts that were taken by Charlie and his team on my behalf in obtaining a settlement on my case.
