Los Angeles Work-Related Car Accidents Attorney
If you drive for work, the greatest risk you face on the job is a vehicle accident. While you should be covered by workers’ compensation benefits for a work vehicle accident, you may be able to collect additional damages from a negligent third party.
At Berger & Michelena, we can assist you with the workers’ compensation claim as well as a separate personal injury or wrongful death suit against the driver who hit you. Our experienced lawyers are ready to help you and your family recover the medical benefits and financial compensation you need after an injury.
Were You Injured In A Work Vehicle?
We represent many types of professional drivers and other people who drive for work, including:
- Bus drivers
- Truck drivers
- Delivery truck drivers
- Cargo van drivers
- Airport and hotel shuttle drivers
- Home health aides
If another party’s negligence was responsible for your accident, we can seek damages in a personal injury suit. We will investigate the accident to determine who is liable. It may be another driver, the manufacturer of defective auto parts or a city government that failed to maintain safe roads. Our attorneys can file third-party lawsuits against all liable parties.
Compensation that we recover for you in third-party claims is in addition to the workers’ compensation benefits you receive. It can cover losses that workers’ comp does not, including pain and suffering.
